Joss Whedon's cult favorite "Firefly" may have only been on air for a brief period, but judging by how often Whedon and the show's cast still bring it up, hope for a revival is never far from fans' minds -- especially in the age of the Netflix rescue of "Arrested Development."
When The Huffington Post visited the "Castle" set for the celebration of the show's 100th episode (airing Monday, April 1 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC) we couldn't resist asking star Nathan Fillion about his thoughts on a potential "Firefly" revival, as well as what's on the horizon for his other collaboration with Whedon -- a "Dr. Horrible" sequel.
"We talk about it, we dream about it. I don't think you could find a cast member, a writer, a director, any of the crew who'd say, 'No, I'm out,'" Fillion admitted of "Firefly." "People are pretty busy right now, Alan [Tudyk] is always working, and obviously Joss is pretty busy. But that would be something that I would do again in a heartbeat. There's something about 'Firefly' -- it was my first love. So if you get a chance to go back to your very first love, you'll do it, right?"
Regarding "Firefly," Whedon recently told the Toronto Sun: "I'll never really accept [that it ended]. And I always, in the back of my head, think, 'What if I could get the old gang back together? ... It's something I would love to do."
The closest the team has gotten so far has been a 10th anniversary reunion panel at Comic-Con, as well as a Science channel special, and Fillion and "Firely alum" Gina Torres reuniting on "Castle" when the actress earned a guest-starring role.
The news was a little more positive for "Dr. Horrible," in which Fillion co-starred as the egotistical Captain Hammer opposite Neil Patrick Harris' titular villain. "We're talking about doing another one; there are plans to do another one; we've done everything but set a date and actually do it ... we haven't really done it," Fillion said. "But everybody's in. There's all these ideas flying around, there's plans -- there's, 'Oh, what if we did this?'; 'Oh, that'd be fun! And then after that we can ... '; 'And we did this last time so we'll do this this time ... ' There's those kinds of plans, but we don't have any dates or anything set yet."
Would you watch a "Firefly" revival? Do you think it will ever happen? Weigh in below!
Check back with The Huffington Post for more with Fillion and the rest of the "Castle" cast closer to the 100th episode on April 1.
"Castle" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
Joshua Jackson, Michelle Williams & Katie Holmes On "Don't Trust The B---- In Apartment 23"
While we're very excited to see Busy Philipps and James Van Der Beek back together on the ABC comedy, a "Dawson's Creek" reunion is just not the same with the rest of the gang. Van Der Beek, Jackson and Williams have been teasing a reunion for a while now, but Holmes seemed iffy. However, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/03/katie-holmes-dawsons-creek-reunion-tom-cruise_n_1647000.html" target="_hplink">after her divorce from Tom Cruise, it was reported that he was the one who didn't want the Capeside crew to reconnect</a>. But now that Holmes is a single lady, someone needs to get this started!
Christina Applegate On "Modern Family"
It would be heartwarming to see the "Married With Children" father and daughter reunited on "Modern Family" after all these years. Maybe Applegate could make a cameo as a wacky cousin from Jay's ex-wife's Dede's side of the family.
Elizabeth Berkley and Lark Voorhies on "White Collar"
It's beyond time the ladies of "Saved by the Bell" reunite. Elizabeth Burke's (Tiffani Thiessen) high school friends (Elizabeth Berkley and Lark Voorhies) come calling and need the FBI's help. Good thing Peter and Neal are available.
John Stamos On "90210"
Uncle Jessie and Aunt Becky back together again? Yes please! "90210" could stage a full-blown "Full House" reunion with Lori Loughlin making an appearance. Why not have John Stamos play her new love interest?
Sarah Michelle Gellar On "Bones"
Before Stefan/Elena/Damon, Bill/Sookie/Eric or Edward/Bella, there was Buffy and Angel, the couple who made dating a bloodsucker look glamorous and tragic way before those copycats. Nowadays, David Boreanaz has traded in his fangs for an FBI badge on "Bones," but we'd still like to see SMG swooping in to try and seduce him while Brennan's on the lam, or at least commenting how good he looks with a tan, next season.
James Franco On "Cougar Town"
James Franco is long overdue to reunite with his bad-girl "Freaks And Geeks" co-star Busy Phillips, and Laurie (Busy's character) could use a tall, dark handsome stranger in her life. Let's bring back Daniel and Kim!
Tom Hanks On "Girls"
On the upcoming season of "Girls," "Bosom Buddies" alum Tom Hanks could show up as Hannah's dad's (Peter Scolari) old friend from college who Hannah develops an irrational crush on. Papa Horvath needs his bosom buddy!
Max Casella on "How I Met Your Mother"
"Doogie Howser, M.D." veterans gotta stick together. Max Casella could pop up on "How I Met Your Mother" as a doctor Barney turns to when the threat of an STI rears its ugly head.
Jared Leto On "Homeland"
There's no time like the present for Jordan Catalano to make a comeback, and where better to do it than in his "My So-Called Life" co-star Claire Danes' hit show? Leto can play eccentric pretty well, so we suggest Leto should appear as a fellow psychiatric patient Carrie meets following her ECT therapy -- she already has a great track record with dating unstable guys.
Fred Savage On "Sullivan & Son"
Dan Lauria plays Steve Sullivan's father on the new TBS bar comedy "Sullivan & Son." You know what'd be funny? If Lauria's other TV son, Fred Savage from "The Wonder Years," showed up in a cameo as a drunk, rowdy customer who had to be thrown out of their establishment.
Jurnee Smollett on "Baby Daddy"
It's been a few years, but we bet Michelle Tanner's "Full House" BFFs still keep in touch. Jurnee Smollett could pop up on "Baby Daddy" as Tucker's (Tahj Mowry) old flame. Could it be rekindled?
Jaleel White On "Hart Of Dixie"
Reginald VelJohnson -- the artist formerly known as Carl Winslow from "Family Matters" -- plays Bluebell, AL theatre expert Dash DeWitt on "Hart of Dixie." He runs an arts blog on the town's website, and do you know what every local theatre blog needs? A nerdy intern, preferably played by Jaleel White. Make it happen, CW.
Mario Lopez On "Franklin & Bash"
We think Mario Lopez should take a break from hosting and return to his perfectly permed roots by reuniting with "Saved By The Bell" BFFrenemy Mark-Paul Gosselaar. The erstwhile A.C. Slater could turn up as a client for Gosselaar's Peter Bash, or continue that antagonistic streak by appearing as a law school rival with an ax to grind.
Judith Light On "Mistresses"
Remember the ladies of "Who's the Boss?" Alyssa Milano starred as a housekeeper's (Tony Danza) daughter and Judith Light was the matriarch of the family they lived with and are employed by -- Milano's new series "Mistresses" seems like the perfect opportunity to find a brand new TV reunion around the bend. Light, who recurs on "Law & Order: SVU," could play a legendary famous mistress who helps Milano and the other newbies get through their experiences ... or, she could play the mother of one of the cheating men, who blames it all on his mistress.
Kel Mitchell On "Saturday Night Live"
When "Kenan & Kel" returned to TeenNick and Kenan hosted its opening night on the orange couch, #WheresKel was trending on Twitter. Kenan, an "SNL" cast member, has maintained a steady career after the success of their show and "Good Burger," but we haven't seen much of Kel lately -- he's done a lot of voice work in the past decade and has stuck to the kid market, guest-starring on Disney's "Good Luck Charlie." But maybe it's time for Kel to grow up and reunite with Kenan on "SNL." Will the orange soda jokes translate?
