Firefly is gone 14 years now and even the little bit of hope from Serenity has long since faded.

Lo and behold, it's a Firefly animated series!

Yea as much as this would be just about the best thing that had ever happened in the world ever it's not to be. It is however another great example of the amazing fan art by Irish fella Stephen Byrne.

He's previously done work like this for everything from Buffy to Batman and there's a whole lot talent there. In terms of fan service, this video does a great job of showing off the characters again and even giving Mal and Inara the moment we've been waiting so many years for.

The idea of a cartoon version of the show has been suggested before, and it would be an easier and cheaper way to bring the crew back together, but unfortunately everyone has pretty much moved on.
