According to the folks at IGN’s Film Force rumors of the return of Farscape to television airwaves are true, but not as a revival of the series.
As IGN FilmForce reported back in July, a new Farscape project is finally on its way. While an official announcement was postponed earlier this week, IGN FilmForce has learned that the production office in Australia has re-opened and work has begun on a new project.
The Henson company would not comment on the information but a source close to the production has confirmed that the new project will be a miniseries, not a new season as originally hoped for by the fans. While no plot details are available, sources have also confirmed that the new project will be independent from the Sci-Fi Channel, the network that broadcast the series. No information is currently available about just where the new miniseries will be appearing or when.
While not quite as good as news of a revival of the series would be, this should still give fans of the canceled series something to look forward to.
