Some hope perhaps? Here are a few quotes from the article posted here:
Bright possibilities for Whedon's 'Firefly'
Firefly may be grounded, but it's not quite ready to be scrapped.
Whedon, however, remains committed to the show's possibilities -- and hurt by its quick demise.
''I still haven't given up on Firefly,'' he says, ''which may seem strange since it's been off the air for months. If I can find a new home for Firefly, TV or movies or any damn thing, it will soften the blow.''
Whedon also may have found a home for Firefly on DVD. Fox is planning to release the show on disc in widescreen format, probably in December. Whedon is expected to provide commentary, as he did for Buffy and Angel.
