The hearts of Browncoats everywhere dropped when they learned that Nathan Fillion would not be attending SDCC 2012 to promote "Castle" -- but now news about a possible "Firefly" 10th Anniversary panel at the con has given them new hope!
The info was sussed-out via a Facebook comment by the cult show's executive producer, Tim Minear, in answer to the question whether he was attending SDCC:
"Dunno yet. There is a ten year Firefly thing and I might if only for that. All depends!"
This was apparently enough to send "Firefly" fans into full-on excitement mode. But a follow-up comment by Minear tried to set the record straight:
"I see that my response here has elicited a bit of a firestorm on the net -- just to clarify, I'm not actually even sure what this thing is yet or who is gonna be there. More to follow."
So we're not 100% there's gonna be a 10th anniversary panel at SDCC...but if there was going to be one, this'd be definitely the place for it!
More news as we hear it!
