Farscape is an AustralianAmerican science fiction television series, produced originally for the Nine Network. The series was conceived by Rockne S. O’Bannon and produced by The Jim Henson Company and Hallmark Entertainment.[1] The Jim Henson Company was responsible for the various alien make-up and prosthetics, and two regular characters (the animatronic puppets Rygel and Pilot) are entirely Creature Shop creations.

Although the series was planned for five seasons, it was abruptly cancelled after production had ended on its fourth season, ending the series on a cliffhanger. Co-producer Brian Henson later secured the rights to Farscape, paving the way for a three-hour miniseries to wrap up the cliffhanger, titled Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, which Henson directed. In 2007, it was announced that the creator was returning for a web-series but production has been repeatedly delayed. A comic book miniseries was released in December 2008 that was in continuity with both the series and the hoped-for webisodes.

In February 2014 it was reported that a screenplay for a new Farscape movie was in development.[2][3] At WonderCon 2014, Rockne S. O’Bannon confirmed to Nerdacy[4] that a Farscape movie is in development but in very early stages. In an interview with The Paley Center for Media in late 2017, he re-confirmed working on a movie.[5]
