Entire Firefly cast coming back for Firefly Online

The crew of Serenity will reprise their roles again, or at least their best Browncoat voices, for the upcoming Firefly Online PC and mobile social RPG.

The cult hit TV show Firefly is getting a comeback of sorts. Firefly Online, the social RPG announced last year for PC and mobile, will have the entire original cast reprising their roles.

io9 reports that Alan Tudyk, who played the pilot Wash in the show, will be playing multiple roles. He has done some pretty diverse voice work for Disney movies like Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen, so that makes sense. At least one minor character will be showing up as well: Michael Fairman as the torture-happy crime boss Niska. 

Firefly Online is all about getting your own ship and crew and taking on missions, rather than playing as the Serenity crew themselves. Presumably, though, this news means you'll cross paths with them at some point. 

We also got a first look at gameplay in a new trailer, full of Firefly fans and a Jayne hat.

      mobile? RPG? Firefly?

      Thin Ice pirouette pleasing the fans, VERY thin ice, but ... there is potential there.

        PC as well though. Isometric bar fights/combat (ala shadowrun/banner saga). These guys seem really dedicated to the source material as well. Looks promising.

      The guy in the Jayne hat makes me want to kick his chair out from under him. I think I just understood why bullies bully! 8D

          it's not really anything- they go to a town and Jewel Stait and whats his face the doctor guy are a couple running a coffee shop.

          It's cool but it's the kind of thing I have on in the background while I'm doing something near the computer. It's like reading through the SCP website, where some of them are really great but if you read a ton of them the average quality really shows.

      Just popped in from the future to say shooting space-rats ain't as fun as it sounds. Endgame sucks and the servers are empty.
