Now this is an interesting idea. The folks at Brilliant Screen Entertainment are asking folks to weigh in on their interest in the development of a second Firefly season that would be delivered via an On Demand service to subscribers:
The Firefly Season 2 Project:
Captain Mal and the crew of Serenity need your help to stay flying.
We are looking to push the envelope of episodic television by offering Season Two of Firefly in a groundbreaking new format. Each episode (or the entire season) would be made available for purchase in Standard or Hi-Definition.
It’s possible that subscribers may choose one of three playback options; monthly DVD deliveries, TV On-Demand using your cable or satellite provider, or computer viewing via Streaming Download.
It’s also possible that a box set of DVD’s would be available at the end of the season.
In order for our plan to be successful, we need to take stock of the browncoat recruits that support our cause. It will only take a minute, is strictly confidential, and each profile will take us one step closer to victory!

It’s important to note that they don’t have the rights to do a second season as of yet, but are trying to determine if there’s enough interest to make it worthwhile to pursue the rights. Of course the interest and schedules of Joss Whedon and the cast are unknown at this point. Still, if you’re willing to pay to see more Firefly then letting these folks know is probably a good idea.
