The net is abuzz with Joss Whedon’s proclamation that there will be no Serenity sequel. Except … that’s not quite what he said. He said there’s no movie in the works, and that in follow-up comments said it was unlikely unless a studio asked for it … but that’s a bit different from saying we’ll never see Serenity again.
Personally, I’ve accepted this. Serenity was a good capstone for the series, and while there are still unanswered questions I’d love to see answered (what was the deal with Book anyway? And those blue-handed assassins?) I can live with the fact that I’ve got 13 episodes and one movie to remember the series by. I’m not happy about it … but I can live with it.
