I feel your pain but as of now I know of no way of donating to bring back the 'verse. There are ways of getting your opinions out there like joining sites and voting for Firefly; writing to and asking networks to air it (Several episodes ARE running next week on SciFi) keep telling more people about the show and making more browncoats. Check the threads here on guerilla marketing. Sorry I know how you feel and that's just some of what I've done/continue to do to help.

If by Firefly you mean any Firefly content, at this time the best thing you can do with your money is buy the collectors edition DVD, which is probably the most direct way of attempting to get a sequel made. The next best thing is probably to buy official merchandise.

And then, of course, get all your friends to do the above too

Like was said Buy Official Serenity/Firefly merchandise, get others to want to do the same, spread the love of Firefly/Serenity and someday someone will realize there is money to be made in the 'verse. Joss Whedon wants to tell more stories in the 'verse with actors not just comic books. The actors all want to tell more stories in the 'verse.

Well, I was hoping for something more like "click here to bribe joss and/or " :P

I just bought a ton of stuff including several shirts, but wanted to know what else I can do. I'm not a huge fan of comic books and the like though...

Thanks for that list though...great stuff. I'll go through it and see what else I can get. :D

Have you tried:

http://www.stillflying.net/

It may not be JW & Co. but it's very, very close imho. They continued the show in script format and have almost finished a second season - that's right, a Second Season of Firefly. Prevent senseless dying! Just click the link.

Also, there's an actual "never filmed script" that IS from the series:

http://www.whedon.info/article.php3?id_article=8136

it's very good.

I'm just going to re-post what I wrote in another thread.


The idea of collecting funds and giving it to Joss by the fans is not a new idea and was actually something someone tried (I wish I could remember his name) It didn't work, and people got suspicious and eventually the plan was stopped. We are not a Hollywood studio, we are not bankers. As much as I'd like to think it would be simple enough to open a paypal account and pour money into a Firefly S2 fund, it isn't. The logistics alone would be a nightmare. And though we all feel like we know each other as friends can we really believe that our money is going into a fund for Firefly and not some conman's pocket? I know that sounds paranoid but I'm reminded of scalpers who bought tickets to Serenity KNOWING they'd sell out and die hard fans would be willing to pay through the nose to get one. These scalpers were selling them upwards to 20 to 50 dollars a ticket (if I remember correctly) It set the fandom in an uproar.

So no, as fans the best we can do is everything we've all said. Buy the DVD's, the official merchandise, the comics. It may work out in the end. I think by now the studios out of the black.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


At least one of the solicitation attempts was by Ace Underhill and his fireflyseason2.com campaign. There may have been others.

There is one other option for fans to directly bring back firefly and that is for the brown-coat organizations around the globe to purchase common stocks of Fox with the donated monies of their members, and then to write the Board of Directors of Fox telling them that so many shares of common stock vote for the remaking of Firefly. One share of common stock is equal to one vote. Do not buy the preferred stocks of Fox if this is your desire because preferred stock gives a higher dividend with no voting rights.

Of course each brown-coat organization will have to get the money from its members or organized events and then draw up a contract explaining how the collected money will be spent, how the dividend revenues will be spent, how the program will be run in general and the brown-coat organizations will either have to elect a treasurer for this or start an account with a broker, but this is an option never the less.

Please do correct me if I ask anything stupid, as I don't pretend to know very much about this :P but two questions on that:

-Why would it need to be an organization? Wouldn't individuals holding stock be given that same vote?
-How much common stock would one have to hold in order to be guaranteed that vote?

Well, what's one vote equal to? How many votes would it take to make a difference?

Those are not stupid questions, and if you do have the disposable income to purchase a good quantity of stocks or if purchasing stock is in your portfolio plan then please do, but for the common person who may have $10 - $50 dollars to donate that might not get even one share, but as an organization those donations and possibly some income from organized events would be enough to buy several shares. If a person were to write to the board of directors and say the y own one share the board would probably confirm that person did own a share then politely reply with a thank you for owning the stock in Fox, but that one vote was not enough to dissuade them from their current course. If a person or organization were to say they had several shares, that might persuade Fox to change course.
