Serenity 2! Sort of…

Back in 2005 after Serenity failed to connect with wider audiences generating approximately $39 million at the world wide box office, all appeared to be at an end for Joss Whedon’s sci/fi setting. Unfortunately as far as movies and TV goes, this is still pretty much the case, however for those loyal fans still keen to see the story continue beyond the feature film, a new project has emerged that will tell that story.

Dark Horse Comics have announced they are launching a new Serenity comic series that will take place following the events depicted in the film. No writer has been announced at this stage, however Georges Jeanty will be doing artwork for the book, he previously worked on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series.

The plot description for the new book that has been released from Dark Horse is below;

As the series begins, Mal and the crew are recouping from their recent strike against the sinister interplanetary government, The Alliance, in which they exposed government agencies as those responsible for the creation of the Reavers — the scourge of the universe. With River Tam in the co-pilot chair and a very pregnant Zoe reeling from the death of her husband, Wash, Mal is finding himself and his ship in greater danger than ever.

So there we go, it’s not a new movie, or a new TV series, but it’s something.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
