    yes, that's right. farscape is finally getting a PROPER ending to the series. too bad it's going to be a miniseries though :hs: from what I'm understanding though, if the miniseries is a big hit, scifi channel would look at adding another season onto the show.

    I was so damned pissed at the ending of the series. it shows that the directors and producers didn't see the cancellation coming when they wrote it.

    WHOA!

    Have they set a commitment to the miniseries? How many episodes?

    it airs the 17th of october. it's only going to be 4 episodes, written to be stand-alone, but tie up "a majority of the loose ends" from what I've seen, all of the cast is back. There has been mentioning from several interviews that the series might resume if the mini-series has a high enough rating. it's something that I really wish would happen, but knowing the way series revivals usually are, I don't think it will ever occur. :hs:
     
  4. im sure it will get good ratings. The show had a fairly large following, hopefully they will decide to do more than 4 episodes

    ^

    Are four episodes really enough time for them to be airing stand alone episodes?

    Any news of they're still going to hold them to ONLY four?

    :dunno:

    as it stands its going to be held to 4 DOUBLE length episodes- really 8 episodes then if you compare it to the old Farscape episode's length.

    Yeah, they got cut off badly. They had several more shows ready to go, that ending was only supposed to be a cliff hanger. Farscape is a great show, if Sci Fi had kept the season NORMAL instead of having MONTHS in between (not even reruns) it would have been fine. I hope they do pick it back up, but I don't see how they can gauge that by how well a mini-series does. I'm not holding my breath, but I'm looking forward to these new ones.

    I loved farscape, but it got really rather confusing if you ever missed an episode... gave up in the end :( Might give it another go tho...

    They started the Peacekeeper Wars Sun night, and I missed it thinking it started tonight. Tonight was pt 2. They're showing both this coming Sunday back to back, so I'll catch it then. Hope they bring the show back.

    Great job in summing everything up and finishing things off. been a fan since the beginning back when it went off for like 6 months with no word. very impressed with the miniseries and wouldnt mind another season.

    If they had kept it steadily on the air, like they do with Stargate, I don't think it would have ever been cancelled. They would go for months between seasons without even showing reruns, show it for a few weeks and then drop it from the schedule again for a month or so. Very irregular scheduling that lost viewers and made it hard to keep up with. Too bad, it's a great show.

    I just started watching the series. I'm about half way through season 1 and I like what I see so far. Can't wait to get farther in.

    I just don't understand why so many scifi shows get cancelled even when they are successful. Farscape had a large following. I know Fridays were big night for me during its run. Stay in watch scifi all night, eat, drink and enjoy.:hsd: the good ol' days. I still enjoy scifi Fridays, but something is missing.

    I guess it's hard to keep them going due to the expense. :dunno:
    I'm sure it's a lot cheaper to crank out yet another sitcom or lawyer/doctor/cop drama series.

    Yeah. I guess the bottom line is always the bottom line- when you don't know the answer to something, look for the $$, there's the answer.:hs:

    wow this thread is old. Farscape won't come back, it competes with Stargate. Which Ben Browder and Claudia Black now star in as well.

    the thread was about the peacekeeper wars. the series is definitely over, as they ended it quite nicely. no one is suggesting they're bringing it back.

    I've heard rumors about a Farscape movie, but I don't see how it could work. Because like you said, they ended it perfectly, and extending the story would probably ruin it.
