‘Farscape’ Spin-Off Flick is in the Works


Cult favorite science fiction series Farscape, created by Rockne S. O’Bannon, was one of the best original creations of the old Sci-Fi Channel, and a brainchild of the famed Jim Henson Company. Running from 1999 to 2003, the series was supposed to get five seasons, but ended up getting cancelled after only four and ending on a cliffhanger. Co-producer Brian Henson secured the rights to the series, and made the miniseries Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars to tie up the show’s loose ends….

But that doesn’t mean Farscape fans aren’t still hungry for more: 

The script for a feature-length Farscape spin-off is currently being penned by one of the show’s original writers: Justin Monjo, and will be directed by Brian Henson himself–here’s a quick synopsis courtesy of Tor:

Set to follow the awesome comics written by our favorite Keith R.A. DeCandido, the film would follow John and Aeryn’s son, D’Argo (or Little D, as we will always refer to him). Because their baby was exhibiting a set of interesting powers that made him a magnet for galactic villains, we find that John and Aeryn hide their son on Earth to grow up. Now the kid is 19 and ready to go into space with his parents.

As for whether this will be a television, cinematic, or home video project, there is no information as of yet. Neither do we know anything regarding the new film’s cast, or whether any of the characters/actors from Farscape will return.

As usual, more information will be provided as it becomes available.
