Firefly, one of the most notorious entries in geek culture. Its early cancellation immortalized it our collective geek minds. But it didn’t end there. Check out what other stories in other mediums have since come.
What’s in the Firefly Timeline?
Firefly was unfortunately cancelled after only airing a few episodes of its first season. However, fans have since clamored for more stories featuring these characters. That is what led to a feature film to wrap up several story threads. Additionally, several comics would eventually continue the story even further.
So this timeline takes all the media in the Firefly universe and puts them together into one cohesive viewing order. We list this Firefly timeline in chronological order by default. However, you can still sort by release date or other factors. So feel free to play around with the table. As with all of our timelines, don’t forget to let us know if there’s something else we should add or change. You can do this on our contact page. Additionally, you can visit one of our other timelines if you liked this one, such as our Star Trek timeline. Thank you, and enjoy!
Where to Start?
The best place (by far) to start is with the original series. Just watch it already. You need to. Like now. Go. Do it. Even if you’ve already seen it. Go watch.
