10 Cult TV Shows Netflix Should Revive

Firefly

This cult classic was axed from Fox after just 11 episodes in 2002, but following its very short on-air life, Firefly remains a much talked about TV series.

Created by Joss Whedon (the man behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Firefly is a space western set in 2517 after the human race arrives in a new star system. The series follows the crew aboard "Serenity," a Firefly-class spaceship. Whedon pitched the show as "nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things," and looked to convey the message that nothing will change in the future despite the advancement of technology.

The acclaim the series has received post-cancellation is certainly greater than when it was on the air. Firefly premiered to just 4.7 million viewers and was 98th in Nielsen ratings.

But Firefly's DVD release posted noteworthy sales and led Whedon to create a film based on the series, as well as comics and games. A group of original fans bonded together, calling themselves Browncoats, to try to save the series from being cancelled and have petitioned to revive the show.

Firefly star, Nathan Fillion, along with fans, attempted to raise funds to buy the rights to the series, but Whedon's office Tweeted that they would not revive the show no matter what.
