Browncoats Unite in the Firefly 10 Year Anniversary Special

Firefly is celebrating 10 Years with a release of a new special, Browcoats Unite, which aired on the Science Channel on November 11, 2012.

The cast and creators of Firefly re-united on a recreated set of the Serenity in a round table discussion to talk about the show in a 10th Anniversary special, filmed after their historic reunion panels at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic-Con.

The brilliant Joss Whedon show was cancelled by FOX after one season, but remained alive for 10 years through DVD and Blu-Ray home video releases, word-of-mouth, and its follow-up 2005 movie Serenity, the various Browncoats fanclubs (California Browncoats, Arizona Browncoats, Portland Browncoats, Austin Browncoats, etc); and fanfilms including Browncoats: Redemption, a 2010 Firefly fan film project for charity, which raised $113,000.
