It's been 10 years since Joss Whedon's short-lived space cowboy series Firefly graced the small screen for its initial run—but it's finally coming back. Well, kinda.

We'd already heard the cast and crew were set to hold a 10-year reunion this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, but now it seems the Science Channel will be shooting a documentary around the panel, which will air in November. When it does, they hope the Browncoats will unite for Browncoats Unite.

The segment will feature interviews with the likes of Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon, as well as a behind-the-scenes roundtable Q&A to delve deeper into the series.

The Science Channel may seem like an odd fit, but the cable network has had huge success with the cult fave series in syndication and hopes some new Firefly-related content will do even better.

"Firefly is a landmark work of science fiction and a favorite with our viewers," Scient Channel VP Debbie Myers said. "Ever since it premiered on Science, fans have asked us to do something special to mark its 10-year anniversary. With this signature celebration, punctuated by Browncoats Unite, we will connect the minds behind this classic franchise with its legions of passionate fans."
The documentary will air on Sunday, Nov. 11, along with a daylong marathon of Firefly.
