Joss Whedon's Firefly television series was cancelled after just one short season due to low ratings despite outraged fans of the series, who today can only be described as a cult following. While the movie Serenity gave a limited form of closure to the events of the show, fans have still been calling on Whedon, or anybody really, to relight Firefly's spark.
Though it is hardly the revival that fans called for, Firefly will soon be reborn as Firefly Online; an MMORPG set in the Firefly universe. Players will be able to take on a role similar to that of Captain Malcolm Reynolds himself, commanding their own ship and crew as they complete missions, trade or battle with others online.
Firefly Online will be available in the summer of 2014 for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android platforms.
