Firefly is an American space western drama television series created by writer and director Joss Whedon.
In the year 2517, humans have arrived in a new star system after using up all of Earth's resources. A renegade group of people, some of whom were on the losing side of a civil war for independence, try to make a living on the fringes of society as part of the pioneer culture of their star system.
Why It Was Cancelled Edit
Fox seemed to due a poor job of handling the show, airing the episodes out of order and at different air dates. This led to low ratings, forcing the show's cancellation. To make up for this, the story was continued with a feature film, Serenity, and a series of comics.
