Check out this article at IGN FilmForce. If (big if) this is true it would be great news, but I'm very wary of getting my hopes up until we get an official word from Henson or someone involved with Farscape. With that being said, keep your fingers crossed for this weekend! Posted Image

[quote] From the article:
A representative for the Sci-Fi Channel confirmed to IGN FilmForce that the network knows nothing about a Farscape mini-series. If Sci-Fi is not involved with a new Farscape mini, then where would it run? [quote]I'm hoping for Showtime. Aeryn and Crichton could really get busy...

Edit: anyone going to ComicCon?

With the fact that the Henson family is buying back their company, Farscape being "over" for good is premature, Especially since Brian Henson knows the value of the franchise.

ComicCon came and went and no announcement, but Henson is still committed to Fasrcape. From SaveFarscape:

[quote] The basic word is this: They had no major announcement to make, the panelists were aware of the rumor, The Jim Henson Company is just as firmly committed to the Farscape Project as ever, [quote]

I went to the Comic Con and listened to the panal and there was no definite word on the series future but he said something to the effect that they were doing everything they could to bring it back. It was great to see everyone in person and Ben even made a call to Claudia and had everyone yell something into her Answering machine. I have to say that they guy that played Rygel was a hoot. Its funny after the convention was over and a few hours later, I was coming out of Pizza place in Hillcrest and saw Wayne (Scorpius) having dinner with a couple of friends.

I think most people are trying not to get their hopes up. Whether or not there are talks going on, I'd say the article is premature. Whatever the case, as soon as there is word from Henson or any other company involved, it'll be all over the internet. Still, it's great to know that so many involved are dedicated to doing something.
