Farscape creator Rockne O’Bannon believes that a continuation of the space opera isn’t “out of the question”.
O’Bannon says Farscape, which ran from 1999 to 2003, could be revived but most likely as a feature film. He told SciFiNow:
“[The ship] has not completely sailed. I don’t know that it would necessarily come back as a series. There were other factors that helped us back then, because the ratio of the Australian dollar to the American dollar helped us a great deal to make the show as rich looking as it was.
O’Bannon went on to add that the world he and fellow co-creator Brian Henson created is never far from his mind:
“I’m in touch with [co-creator] Brian Henson, the fellow executive producer and champion of the show, regularly and we’re always talking about where else we could next present that world.
O’Bannon doesn’t specify whether a potential Farscape revival could be sourced through crowd-funding like the Veronica Mars Kickstarter movie project, but cites Firefly as another example of series continuation on the big screen:
“A feature [film] is something we’ve talked about. That’s not out of the question. Obviously Firefly found new life in features as Serenity, so it can happen. We continue to talk about it. I would love to go and revisit that world.”
It remains to be seen if anything will come of a Farscape movie, but O’Bannon would certainly seem to have his hands full with the CW’s Cult (though maybe not for much longer) and Syfy’s upcoming series Defiance.
Even so, we’ll endeavor to keep you informed should any Farscape developments arise.
