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.
