YES!!!... and NOOOOOOOOOOO
Zap2it is reporting that Nathan Fillion and Tim Minear will be joining forces again on a new series called Drive (since everyone else will be posting pics of Fillion, I am going to post the talented and lovely Tim Minear instead). In a very cruelly titled article, "FOX Plans Midseason Firefly Reunion" (oh, you think you are SO funny, don't you??!!) they explain that there aren't many details, just that the show will be about a bunch of people involved in an underground race across America. Sounds weird, but hey, I'm there.
Firefly/Serenity fans will know Nathan Fillion as Captain Mal Reynolds, Buffy fans will recognize him as the evil Caleb, and Lost fans will know him as Kate's ex-husband. Tim Minear was the brilliant executive producer of Angel, co-executive producer of Firefly, and wrote for a little gem called Wonderfalls. All three shows: cancelled. The latter two shows: FOX cancelled.
So is this exciting news? Yes. Will it last longer than five episodes? Sadly, probably not.
Oh Tim... couldn't you have taken this to the CW network or something? Sigh...
