    Sci-Fi probably won't pick it up, but maybe someone like SHO will grab it and show it in HD? Probably not.

    It looks like this one is going direct to video.

    Yes, this is very good news. It was, however, discussed right here a couple of weeks ago.

    Space in Canada might show it. They've definitely showed more support for the series than the Sci-Fi Channel.

    I wouldn't count Sci-Fi out, for that matter. Remember, both Universal and Henson have new ownership since Farscape was canceled, and NBC and Henson have a decent relationship. Sure, Bonnie Hammer's still there, but the folks at Henson likely realize that Farscape is, especially in the more casual audience member's eye, associated with Sci-Fi.

    It's foolish to hold grudges in show business; within six months the people you hate are no longer at the company you hate.

    Oh, this is great! Luckily my waiting time won't be as long as some others because I haven't even finished season 3 yet. So, by the time I've seen season 4 the mini should be out there...

    The only thing that bothers me with the miniseries is the fact that Brian Henson directs it. I just can't see him equal as a director to Rowan Woods, Andrew Prowse and Tony Tilse...

    Great!!
    I so miss this show and want to see them end it the way they should.

    I really think they should call the first part, "Picking up the Pieces."

    About Sci Fi....

    They dont deserve to show it.

    I'm a Sci-Fi fan but I've never watched FarScape or Babylon 5 and I'm planning on picking up season sets of both based on you guys here. So how lucky am I?

    I agree it's definitely the best fit, especially if a fifth season ever happens, it just sounded like there was so much bad blood between Henson and SciFi for them to agree on this. I guess when push came to shove, both parties were able to hammer out a deal for the mini to air on SciFi.

    THIS IS SOME GREAT FRELLING NEWS!

    I am also surprised that it will be airing on SCI-FI Channel, but now that it is, it's time to motivate viewers to help bring in some record ratings and prove to SCI-FI the errors of their ways!

    I have never found a show with characters more colorful (figuratively AND literally) or a show that is more enjoyable to watch!

    Where else can you watch wild interspecies sex, incredible action, and humor... all before the show's opening credits!

    From a villain who needs replacement cooling rods screwed into his head to a "slug" who farts helium when he's frightened! This show has an abundance of imagination!

    ...sorry, it's hard to contain my glee!

    Great that it is coming back but I am shocked its going to be on Sci Fi.
    Let's hope they actually advertise when it is airing.

    I can't wait to see this air, and hopefully they will do away with the cliffhanger of season 4 quickly and get onto more important storylines.

    I too am surprised its going to be on SciFi, but I guess they want to bring back the fans to their channel. I wonder how much they're paying for it.

    Between this and the Firefly movie, I'm just thrilled. thank god audiences didn't give up on either franchise.

    This is what I advocated and predicted back in November.

    Frankly, I would have been shocked if this ended up on a network other than Sci-Fi.

    I think this is best for all parties involved.

    Rockne co-wrote it and I think that is great news.

    There's a post at SaveFarscape.com with the transcript of Brian Henson's interview in Dreamwatch magazine, there are a couple of spoilers. This is going to be a long summer!
