Another series that was cancelled before it's time has been given an interesting reprieve. Reports were coming out last week that SciFi was looking to resurrect a show with an established fandom. It appears that was Farscape as they have ordered 10 "webisodes". Information to come about casting but there was a quote from an executive noting that the main stars Ben Browder and Claudia Black are not under contract at the moment.

I know it's not Firefly but it is interesting that a show cancelled in 2002 could come back from the dead. We can hope this is the start of a trend.

It's been written up on the SciFi Wire (SciFi.com). They are also going banannas at watchfarscape.com, you have to scroll down to see the news though. You can also see links to various articles in the Farscape forums on SciFi.com

SyFyPortal also has an article about it.

That is great news for Farscape lovers. NOW how about spreading the love to the Browncoats, eh?

I also have to admit, I never got Farscape. Just did not do it for me.

Honestly, who the hell do them farscape fans think they are getting their show back before us? That's all fine and dandy for 'em, but let's make something very clear here Farscape people, you don't even have your own name. You know who we are? We're the motha f*ckin browncoats. We're the most ruthless, aggressive, and headstrong fans out there, and we're damn proud of it. If you can get your TV show back, by god... so can we. We just need to get Fox to let it go god damn it.

And I don't recall any farscape movie coming out with a special edition DVD. Oh wait, I don't even recall a farscape movie!

Other SciFi nerds - 0

Farscape? YEAH!!!! Remember that Ben & Barb are currently running with Stargate SG-1, but, their last season is running now...so...that means they should be available to work FARSCAPE! I just hope Ben Browder will return a bit more mellow-not so much yelling as he was so well known for on FARSCAPE.

Is there any way to contact Fox? If all the browncoats sent Fox a leter/email or something, asking them to let go of the contract once and for all, I'm sure we'd get our/best show ever back!

ThePrinceMagus - Farscape fans are called Scapers, fans of the 2 Stargates are called Gaters, fans of both are called FarGaters.

I happily wear all these titles.

Well mostly everyone thinks they're greedy

They may think their sins are original, but for the most part they are petty and repetitive.

Yeah....

The article I read said that some of the original cast may appear in some of the episodes, but no more specific than that.

I don't know how big of a "coup" this is, if it's not actually FARSCAPE.

To me, it would be like having FIREFLY "web-isodes" that focus on the mail guy from "The Message" and the sheriff from "The Train Job," with a firefly class transport sighted in the background every once in a while. I wouldn't want FIREFLY back like that...

Oh, I dunno. If Joss were involved, it would at least be worth a look.

Or like setting a show in the Buffyverse that just focused on Angel and Cordelia and that dork who was Faith's watcher for a while.

I mean, seriously, who'd watch a show like that?

Exactly!

The show that they didn't claim was the long awaited return of "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer"!

Is there any one of us who wouldn't immediately and without hesitation set their DVR for ANY of:

"Bathgate Abbey" The untold story of Shepherd Book. Featuring lots of shooting. Of rabbits. For stew.

"Dupes!" Starring a many-named red-haired con artist.

"Sihnon Companion Training House" (I'll be in my bunk)

"Shiny!" A coming-of-age tale of a cheerful young girl with a knack for mechanical things, working for a father struggling to make ends meet. (I'll still be in my bunk)

"Shadow puppets" Set in a prison during the war for independence.

"The Niskas" Portrays the family life of a mobster, and after many seasons ends surprisingly when he gets

I checked, using IMDB and their websites, and it seems that other than Ben Browder, none of them are tied up at the moment. Claudia Black will be on the new show "Life" on NBC but it does not appear she will be a regular character and may only be in the pilot.
