—Browncoats rejoice: “Firefly” is returning to basic cable—and Nathan Fillion has something to say about it.
The Science Channel has acquired the rights to the cult-hit and will air the series in its short-lived entirety, plus some new extras. Science Channel will wrap each episode with interstitial segments starring renowned physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, who will discuss the theoretical science behind the show’s sci-fi concepts.
According to “Firefly” studio 20th Century Fox, this will mark the first time “Firefly” has aired on a fully distributed basic cable channel since 2008, when it ran on USA Network.
In honor of this occasion, star Nathan Fillion took a brief break from shooting ABC’s “Castle” today to jump on the phone and answer five “Firefly” questions—including whether he’d ever reprise the role of Captain Mal again. That interview and more details about Science Channel’s “Firefly” plans below:
