Is Joss Whedon Part of the Disney+ ‘Firefly’ Reboot?


The cult hit, one-season series Firefly, which was created by Joss Whedon, was a blip on our TV screens back in 2002. For years, fans of the show have begged for Fox to do a reboot of the sci-fi show. However, they were met with silence. Firefly, set in the year 2517, followed the adventures of the crew of a spaceship named Serenity. The nine-person team travel to different worlds, and often find themselves battling criminals and corrupt officials. 

Well, it’s been nearly 20 years since airing its one and only season, and now that Disney owns the rights to several Fox shows, could Firefly finally be getting the reboot that fans have been yearning for?

It is unlikely that Joss Whedon will return to help with the reboot.

Due to the multiple controversies surrounding Joss Whedon, it seems unlikely that he would return in any capacity to contribute to the Firefly reboot. Actor Ray Fisher opened up about the toxic environment on the set of Justice League and claimed much of that had to do with Joss.

Ray’s initial tweet alleged that Joss Whedon was “abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” to the cast and crew on-set during production. He wrote, “Joss Wheadon’s [sic] on-set treatment of the cast and crew of Justice League was gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable. He was enabled, in many ways, by [then-President and Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment] Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Accountability > Entertainment.”

This is not the first time that Joss Whedon has been accused of abuse and inappropriate behavior on set. He allegedly butted heads with Angel star Charisma Carpenter after she became pregnant ahead of Season 4. Her character’s storyline was changed to account for her pregnancy, and she was eventually written off the show. In 2017, Joss was accused by his ex-wife Kai Cole of hiding extramarital affairs.
