Back in the fall of 2002, Joss Whedon’s Firefly was one of the best new shows on the primetime roster. It was a show unlike any other as it managed to combine the genres of space opera with Western action. Sadly, Firefly was cancelled by Fox after only 14 episodes had been produced. Still, the series has been elevated to cult status in the years since its cancellation, and the cast whose space opera careers were cut short have found successes elsewhere. So, let’s take a look at just what the former space travelers have been up to in the years since Firefly.

Nathan Fillion
Space cowboy extraordinaire Nathan Fillion found himself part of another Joss Whedon project that would reach cult status when he took on the role of Captain Hammer in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and he had a brief but memorable run as Dr. Adam Mayfair on Desperate Housewives. Fillion really hit the mainstream when he landed the lead role of Richard Castle on Castle, which is currently airing its eighth season on ABC. He appeared as himself on an episode of The Big Bang Theory to take a picture with Firefly fans Leonard and Raj, and his recent stint on Drunk History is definitely worth a watch.
