Firefly finally to air in US
May 19, 2005
For those of you who are wondering what all of the fuss over Serenity (the movie from the short-lived Fox series Firefly) is all about, you’ve now got a chance to find out.
The Futon Critic is reporting that the Sci Fi Channel (the US version) will be airing all 15 episodes (only 8 made it onto Fox) on Friday Nights, along with the new seasons of Stargate SG1, Stargate:Atlantis and Battlestar Galactica.
The full 15 episodes had aired previously in other countries, but this is the first time they’ll be shown on US television.
FIREFLY (FOX) – The Sci Fi Channel has landed the repeat rights to all 15 hours of the short-lived FOX series (and basis of the upcoming “Serenity” feature film). The network’s July schedule lists the series as joining its Friday lineup on July 22 at 7:00/6:00c where it will precede original episodes of “Stargate SG-1,” “Stargate Atlantis” and “Battlestar Galactica.”
This should be great for ramping up buzz for Serenity, in addition to being some of the best damn television you’ve ever watched.
