Farscape Movie In The Making

After a few weeks following the original rumours, Rockne O’Bannon, creator and showrunner of the original series, has confirmed that the movie is, in fact, happening. Confirmation came via TV.com that “O’Bannon, the co-creator of Warehouse 13, Defiance, and Revolution… who was also Farscape’s creator and showrunner – has indeed CONFIRMED a Farscape movie is happening. SpoilerTV followed up with a quote from O’Bannon establishing Justin Monjo’s involvement: “Yeah, yeah it’s the worst kept secret…We’re far from production, but yeah, the first step is Justin [Monjo] working on a script for us. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.” This will be great news for fans of the cult show that ran for 4 seasons before it got cancelled followed by a mini-series to wrap up the storyline, which was initiated by a massive fan campaign on the internet.

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. Farscape fans would know that any future stuff from the Farscape world will not include the regular characters Ka D’Argo who died in mini-series Peacekeeper Wars as well as recurring character former crewmate Jool, who was killed off as well. Pa’u Zotoh Zhaan, a main character, too was killed off at the beginning of the 3rd season, due to actress having health problems due to the extensive makeup which was affecting her kidneys.

One can only wait and see.
