The Farscape Movie is Happening

So Rockne S. O’Bannon, the guy who essentially WAS ALL THINGS Farscape during it’s run on SyFy (which was then Sci-Fi haha, names), was at Wondercon this past weekend and was sitting on a panel and matter-of-factly stated that the Farscape movie was indeed happening.

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.

Apparently a decade after wrapping up the series with The Peacekeeper Wars in 2004 and the subsequent comic series, the show is set to return to the big screen with a story set after the events in the comics (since they were canon thanks to being supervised by Mr. O’Bannon) where D’argo, not the lovable Luxan but the child of Aeryn and John, has been stashed away on Earth with his parents until his 19th birthday where the family decides to return to space.

I’m not a fan of teenage coming-of-age tales, but when the universe is Farscape, I’m behind it 100%. I can only hope that we see the return of Scorpius played by Wayne Pygram who stole every damn scene he was in during the series and was one of the best love-to-hate-him bad guys in science fiction. There’s no report on when exactly this movie will be made, or released to the public, but regardless…I’m excited for this to happen.
