Cool.

Do you have a link for this story? Scapers like to verify, verify, verify all Farscape related rumors.

Thanks.

Is this the source?

IF this is a real news release, then we should be seeing confirmation on Scifiwire, TVGuide, and/or other entertainment news sites over the next 24 hours.

So lets keep our fingers crossed and HOPE!

If there's no confirmation, then never mind.

This is the real thing, people!

I wonder how they're going to pull this off? If it's only a few minutes like the BSG: Resistance episodes then that's going to be a major let down. At least give me half hour episodes. Why can't Skiffy just bring back the freaking series on TV, damnn it? Who is this going to star? It probably won't be as expansive and epic as the series. Let's just hope this does well enough to warrant either a feature film, an unending line of miniseries (that are far better than the mess-heap that was PK Wars), a spin-off, or a return of Farscape to television...or all of the above!

LONG LIVE FARSCAPE!

ATMD is right. While beggars can't be choosers, a 2-3 minute webisode will be terrible. We need a solid 45 minutes. I gotta believe this may be the gateway to bringing it back. Come on Henson - we'll support you!

It is indeed the real deal. This from the Post Gazette:
QUOTE
The "Farscape" franchise will live on as a live-action Web series. Sci Fi Channel executive Craig Engler confirmed that the company has closed a deal with The Jim Henson Company for a 10-episode webisode series. So far no stars or writers are signed to appear and no story plotted, but if successful, the project could lead to re-igniting the franchise on the air.

And a little bit more about these webisodes:
QUOTE
The network will also launch new content on scifi.com's broadband video site Sci Fi Pulse. The network will resurrect its popular space series Farscape on the Web with a 10-part webisode series. David Howe, executive vice president and general manager said some of the show's original cast would appear in the webisodes, but would not comment further.


That's all the stuff relating to Farcape, but you can still read the entire article at the following link:
