    Bummer. I guess this answers the question of whether it will eventually return as a series.

    Subscriber only link, so I can't read the article. :( But from what I gather, this contradicts Joss' comments about waiting for the DVD and European sales before a final decision is made. So I don't believe a reporter over Joss' direct statements.

    What a good reason to NOT buy the DVD! To admit it won't make a difference.

    All the article says is:

    ''In the end, it was what it was: a tough sell,'' says Whedon, adding that it appears the Firefly saga has reached its conclusion. He has no regrets — and he's moving on.

    Hardly conclusive.

    That means he needs Wonder Woman to give him a foot massage.

    Which is one reason why we won't be seeing any Firefly in the near future...

    Good catch; now off to post to the other half-dozen forums/blogs/etc. I've seen that have run this EW story today...

    I wonder how many people have even seen the whole article?? I certainly haven't, given the paid registration requirement (who actually subscribes to EW? Online EW!?). I was expecting the obligatory posting of the whole article in the Slashdot thread at least, but no such luck. Nice to know people are freaking out over a fragment of story in a random industry rag :rolleyes:

    Not to mention "The Man They Call.....Me!"

    (if anyone has the DVDs and hasn't seen that Easter Egg, it's hi-larious)

    Joss needs to move Fray from a comic book to an animated series. Keep the slayer 'verse alive. I, for one, have no interest in Wonder Woman (unless there's rampant nudity).
