New FIREFLY Novels Will Expand the Universe of Joss Whedon’s Cult Classic

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Firefly‘s untimely cancellation. But even a premature end couldn’t take the sky away from fans, as the series had a big screen revival with the film Serenity, and brand new comic book adventures from Dark Horse Comics. Now, Firefly is expanding again with three new novels from Titan Books.

Via Entertainment Weekly, series creator Joss Whedon will be a consulting editor on the new Firefly novels, and they will all be official stories within the canon of the franchise. The first novel, Firefly: Big Damn Hero, will be written by Nancy Holder. That book will launch the line in October with a story that finds Malcolm Reynolds, the captain of Serenity and its crew, kidnapped by “a bunch of embittered veteran Browncoats.” For anyone new to the franchise, Browncoats were the nicknames for the rebels who lost an intergalactic civil war with the Alliance. Mal and his right-hand woman, Zoe Alleyne, were also Browncoats.

James Lovegrove will pen the second novel, Firefly: The Magnificent Nine, which shifts the focus to Serenity’s resident enforcer, Jayne. In that tale, Jayne gets a call for help from “his ex, Temperance McCloud, that leads the Serenity crew to danger on a desert moon.” That story will hit book stores in May 2019. The third novel, Firefly: Generations, is coming in October 2019. In that book, author Tim Lebbon will put the spotlight on River Tam as the Serenity crew contemplates the “staggering salvage potential” of one of the lost Ark ships that brought humanity into the larger galaxy. However, the cost of that salvage may prove to be higher than the crew can imagine.
