Firefly fans are in for a treat. TVInsider reports Nathan Fillion will pay homage to the cancelled FOX TV show on an upcoming episode of the ABC’s American Housewife.
Fillion played Captain Mal Reynolds on Firefly, which followed the rag-tag crew of the spaceship Serenity in the year 2517. The cast also included Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, and Ron Glass. FOX canceled the series in 2003 after only one season.
Fillion may not be boarding the Serenity again anytime soon, but he will be playing a fictionalized version of himself on an upcoming episode of American Housewife. And from the looks of it, that version of himself looks an awful lot like Capt. Mal.
Check out photos of Fillion on set of the ABC series below:
