Farscape, a brilliant and bizarre sci-fi series with aliens provided by the Jim Henson Company, is now officially being made into a movie. It was confirmed by Rockne O’Bannon, Farscape’s creator and show-runner at WonderCon this week. O’Bannon has given a lot of the credit to Brian Henson, who has apparently been pushing for it for quite some time.
Farscape fans were left wanting more when it was cancelled after the fourth season, despite originally being planned for five. There’s been no date announced, or even any reason to assume that the original cast will be able to return, but it’s exciting news nevertheless.
If you are interested in getting into the show and seeing what all the fuss is about, you can purchase the entire series on Blu-Ray from Amazon for a mere $68.
The trailer below is not for the movie.
