Nathan Fillion doesn’t care much for the Joss Whedon haters.

The “Castle” star, 51, worked with Whedon, 57, on the 2002 Fox series “Firefly” and several other projects over the years.

Fillion recently defended working with Whedon — saying he’d be open to doing something else with him again — and seemed to suggest that the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” creator should be un-canceled, despite several toxic workplace and harassment allegations against him.

On an episode of Michael Rosenbaum’s “Inside of You” podcast, Fillion noted that Whedon is a “funny, self-deprecating, incredibly talented” filmmaker who is “maybe a little haunted.”

He also touched upon a January 2022 article from New York Magazine where Whedon addressed some of the accusations.

“I read that article, and nowhere in there at any point in time did he mention ‘Firefly,’” Fillion told the “Smallville” alum.

“I had an entirely … that was not my experience with that man,” he continued.

“I mean, listen by his own admission, that guy’s a work-in-progress, and I appreciate that,” the “Waitress” actor went on. “I would work with Joss again in a second. I would work with him again in a second.”

Despite “Firefly” only being on air for one season some 20 years ago, it was revived into a 2005 feature film titled “Serenity.”

Fillion noted that he wouldn’t want to reboot the space Western TV series without Whedon’s involvement.

He also seemingly alluded on the podcast that he has discussed a possible revival with the “Avengers” director. “We talk, we joke, we fantasize,” Fillion said,

The Canadian actor said “it would be heartbreak” if Whedon wasn’t included in a “Firefly” reboot. “How can you?” he asked.

Several actors have come forward with allegations of abuse at the hands of Whedon, including “Justice League” stars Gal Gadot and Ray Fisher, as well as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” cast members Charisma Carpenter, Danny Strong and Emma Caulfield.

“Wonder Woman” star Gadot, 37, said in an interview with Israeli outlet N12 last October that Whedon “kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable.”
