The primary source of new material for those shows have been series from Dark Horse Comics, specifically Buffy comic books. While the TV show had a companion comic from 1998-2003, after the show finished its seven season run, the story continued in a pivotal series aptly titled Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight. This ongoing was popular enough to lead to Season Nine, Ten and Eleven, as well as various miniseries and graphic novels. Whedon was the writer or co-writer for most of Season
“I remember working so hard on that show, but it had been a long time since I felt this way. I was so exhausted, but I felt happy in the sense that I was giving all of myself to something that I liked. My emotional memory of that show is satisfaction,” he tells TVLine.

Outside of Marvel, there are a ton of other properties that Disney now has their hands on. During a conversation I was having about it, I realized that one awesome property that Disney acquired in the purchase was Joss Whedon's Firefly!
No one has really said anything about this property, but it would be so cool if Disney actually made the attempt to try and revive it! There's got to be some executive at the studio who is a fan of the series and interested in wanting to revive it! Disney seems like a great home for the property.
ABC’s Marvel series made the jaw-dropping reveal in their two-part season five premiere on Friday, as the agents learned that a mysterious new monolith had transported them not just into outer space, but far into a future where Earth has long-since been destroyed -- by one of their own, no less.
In this bleak new world, the Kree rule over what remains of humanity, who live out a desolate existence in a sector of a massive space station known as The Lighthouse. As the agents struggle to come to terms with where -- andwhen -- they are, they meet Deke (Jeff Ward) and Tess (Eve Harlow), citizens of The Lighthouse who end up becoming their unwitting guides to life in this dreary dystopia.

Last season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was its absolute best yet, and for a variety of reasons. The main one being its 10:00 p.m. time slot allowing for darker subject matter ranging from a fully realized Ghost Rider to bloodcurdling androids.
Unfortunately, season 4 ended with a mixed bag of a finale, leaving some of the show’s most loyal fans a bit cold thanks to a lack of resolution for just about every character except for Holden Radcliffe, who did manage to bow out in the best possible way. Aside from a few fun moments, including some thrilling onscreen action with Ghost Rider and Quake tearing through LMDs, “World’s End” didn’t quite live up to its own titular sense of…well, an ending.

Earlier this week the internet was filled with a lot of rumours that Warner Bros. was no longer interested in a Joss Whedon-directed Batgirl film. Though Whedon has created some of the best stories for the comic or sci-fi genre, from Avengers to Buffy The Vampire Slayer to Firefly, he is not without controversy, now more than ever. As of now, it has been denied that Whedon has been or will be fired from Batgirl, but would it even be a bad thing if he didn’t direct? In my opinion, he’s no longer the right person to bring Batgirl to life.
Some spoilers for Justice League follow…
After taking control of Justice League in the wake of Zack Snyder’s departure from the film due to a family tragedy earlier this year, Whedon conducted reshoots of the
The entertainment industry isn’t always fair, though, and we’ve seen a whole bunch of impressive comic book shows get canceled when we felt like they were only getting started. Sometimes, no matter how much we support a show and tell all our friends about it, the wider audience doesn’t get behind it and the execs kick it to the curb.
As such, we’ve gone back in time and selected nine comic book series that got canceled too soon. Before you ask why Joss Whedon’s Firefly isn’t on this list,
Nathan Fillion will soon be back at the former home of Castle, ABC, to star in a new dramedy series called The Rookie...
Nathan Fillion’s starring role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds on Fox’s ahead-of-its-time space/sci-fi/western series Firefly will likely be forever considered the elephant in the room that is his career. Yet, his 2009-2016 run – opposite Stana Katic – as the title star of ABC crime procedural Castle was, in actuality, the most prominent gig of his career. Now, a year and a half after that series came to a (controversially sloppy) close, Fillion has finalised a deal to return to ABC with a series called The Rookie.
ABC has emerged the winner in a competitive situation to acquire The Rookie, reports Deadline. With the network giving a straight-to-series order, Nathan Fillion will not only serve as star, but has also nabbed an executive producer slot.
The series comes from Castle executive producer and co-showrunner Alexi Hawley, and it was inspired by a true story. Here are the details revealed from Deadline:
Fillion plays John Nolan, the oldest rookie in the Lapd. At an age where most are at the peak of their career, Nolan cast aside his comfortable, small town life and moved to L.A. to pursue his dream of being a cop. Now, surrounded by rookies twenty years his junior,

Starring Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, and Ron Glass.
Joss Whedon’s cult show Firefly has been reissued on Blu-ray in a new set that includes some nice packaging, a poster, and character cards. It doesn’t include any new bonus features, so if you have the previously issued Blu-ray set, you’re not missing anything in that department. However, the Blu-rays do have a couple things not found in the original DVD collection, so this is a worthwhile pick-up for those who haven’t grabbed Firefly on Blu-ray yet.
I admit I didn’t catch Joss Whedon’s Firefly when it first aired on Fox in the fall of 2002. My wife and I had welcomed a baby to our family that summer, so between that and a move to another city,

—Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1
Joss Whedon created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and is credited with writing strong female roles and espousing feminist ideals – but not by his ex-wife, Kai Cole, who on the blog The Wrap accused him of being a serial cheater during their marriage and was a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.” This has led to a number of (now ex) fans venting their anger and feelings of betrayal.
Is it true? I dunno. I don’t know Whedon and Cole personally. Could she be lying? Possibly. Could he be an asshole? Possibly. It’s not the point of this column, however. The question I want to consider is – should Whedon, or any artist or celebrity, be considered a role model?

The Tick, out now on Amazon Prime Video, is huge fun. Here's how the show achieves what its creator envisioned 21 years ago...
In 1994, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Despite being “too old” for cartoons, there wasn’t really anything else on television on Saturday mornings while I was waiting for wrestling to show up on my television screen. I remember most of the cartoons I saw only in the vaguest terms: the creepy face of Louie Anderson’s gargoyle animated child or a screaming purple cat. I know the name of both shows because I looked them up prior to writing this article, but I couldn’t tell you anything about them. However, one show I watched regularly in the mid to late 90s stuck with me well into adulthood, and that’s the 1994-96 animated version of The Tick.
