It has been more than a decade since Farscape was cancelled and it looks like it's finally time to revisit John Crichton and the rest of the crew of Moya. Creator Rockne S. O'Bannon has just teased on a possible revival of the beloved sci-fi series.

O'Bannon was recently joined by The Jim Henson Company's Brian Henson at the Farscape 20th anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 (via Comicbook.com). Interestingly, the two confirmed that they haven't given up hope on bringing the show back on air and are now determined to work on a possible revival.

"For a number of years we wanted to continue Farscape in movies," Henson admitted, adding that they realized the story they are planning on wouldn't fit into a two-hour film. Because of this, they decided that it is best to look into returning to television.


O'Bannon wanted to make sure fans are aware that Farscape will continue. "We're not done with Farscape," he said.

Farscape followed the story of John Crichton, a human astronaut who was sucked into a wormhole and finds himself on the ship Moya which happens to be a living entity. He is joined by a stranded Peacekeeper Aeryn Sun as well as several other passengers who only want to find a way home.

The series aired on the Australian network Nine Network and although it was confirmed for a fifth season, the show was abruptly cancelled. This led to the series concluding on a cliffhanger. However, a three-hour miniseries Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars was produced to provide a proper conclusion.
