More Farscape Stuff

Here's another chat transcript, this one with Brian Henson, who talks quite a bit about the upcoming miniseries and the future of Farscape. In case you don't want to read the whole thing, the highlights are:

  • The miniseries is 2 2-hour episodes and should be airing in the US in Oct. or Nov. on Sci Fi. All of the cast have returned for it, and it encapsulates what would have been the story arc for season 5.

  • Henson credits the fans for making the mini possible, because their funding "came from a consortium of financers who would not have heard of us if it weren't for all of the attention the fans bought to the cancelling of the series."

  • Henson sees the future of Farscape as being wide open, and is optimistic about such possibilities as a spinoff series or a feature film.

  • They very nearly used up all the explosives in Australia filming the thing.

  • I find that I'm starting to feel really quite excited...
