“Firefly” fans, get ready to set your hearts aflutter.

David Madden, Fox Broadcasting’s president of entertainment, said he’d be open to a Firefly reboot under one specific condition. Madden told Rotten Tomatoes during a CA 2017 panel that he’d only do it if Joss Whedon, creator of “Firefly” and writer/director on “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron,”  is involved.

The outlet also notes that Madden thinks Whedon is too busy to help revive the beloved sci-fi western, however.

Whedon’s current projects include ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” which he also created, and is apparently writing some sort of World War II-era slasher flick. But according to Alan Tudyk, who played Hoban “Wash” Washburne on “Firefly,” Whedon has expressed interest in reviving the series in the past.

“Not only is there a want from fans, but there’s a want from Joss [Whedon], and from Nathan [Fillion], certainly, and the cast,” Tudyk told Hypable in 2013.

Whedon also told the Toronto Sun in 2013 that he never quite got over the cancellation of “Firefly,” which only lasted a season on Fox in 2002, but was revived into the movie “Serenity” in 2005.

“I’ll never really accept it,” Whedon told the Sun. “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.”

Fingers crossed, guys!
