Farscape is a science fiction television series that was produced for the Sci Fi channel from 1999 to 2003. The series was conceived by Rockne S. O'Bannon and produced by Jim Henson Productions and Hallmark Entertainment. The Jim Henson Company was largely responsible for the various alien makeup and prosthetics, and two regular characters (the animatronic puppets Rygel and Pilot) are entirely Jim Henson's Creature Shop creations. The narrative follows John Crichton, an astronaut from Earth who accidentally opens a wormhole and finds himself at the opposite end of the galaxy.

Although the series was under contract for five seasons, it was abruptly canceled after production had ended on its fourth season, effectively ending the series on a cliffhanger. Co-producer Brian Henson later secured the rights to Farscape, paving the way for a four-hour miniseries entitled Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, which Henson himself directed. New webisodes are being produced by Sci Fi, and are expected to debut in 2009. A new comic book miniseries began in November 2008 that is in the continuity of both the series and the upcoming webisodes.

Plot Description

John Crichton, an astronaut from Earth, enters a wormhole and finds himself thrown to the other end of the galaxy where he meets a bevy of strange creatures -- and, possibly, the love of his life, in the form of a soldier named Aeryn Sun. Caught in the middle of an intergalactic war, John desperately tries to find a way home, while being pursued by armies on both sides of the conflict, who want to learn what secrets he knows about wormholes.

The series is the brainchild of Rockne S. O'Bannon, whose other credits include Alien Nation and Seaquest DSV. The Jim Henson Company was largely responsible for the various alien makeup and prosthetics, and two regular characters - Rygel and Pilot - are entirely Creature Shop creations.

The show originally ended on a cliffhanger, as the series' cancellation occurred too late in production for producers to significantly change anything. However, Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, a four-hour miniseries, aired on Oct. 17 and 18, 2004, wrapping up most of the loose ends of the series.
