Straight from David Kemper, Ben Browder, and Rick Manning’s mouths. Farscape has not been picked up for a 5th season by Sci-Fi. Here are some links to check.

Sci-Fi’s been cancel-happy for at least three years now. They had a major influx of good shows, with only Farscape making it this far, and now that’s gone out the window too with no good reason(just like the rest). Makes me wonder why anyone bothers pitching TV deals to them anymore. Also makes me wonder how long Stargate is going to last.

That was the only show worth watching on sci fi.  Except for old Star Trek and the occasional cheesy sci fi movie, that channel really has nothing.

I experienced the same disappoinment when TNT decided to cancel Babylon 5: Crusade before the first 13 episodes were completed. At least you guys got four seasons of it.

Fancy meeting you here Rommie69….smile


Well if FS is being cancelled…I am as shocked as amny of the shows’ fans can…be.  It is the premiere first run series of the Sci fi channel and…the stopping of production is rediculous.


Oh well, we have Andromeda..wink

New season starts in January with Criton and the gang going to Earth in 1985. (where season 4 finale left us)...This would be season 5!!!!

I’m not sure where you heard it was being canceled???

Remember - there was a rumor on the internet a few months ago about this season being the last for The Simpsons, well it was just a rumor too!!!

I found this at Farscapeweekly.com. This was released after the TV Guide article was written(last Friday)...

They have a online petition if your interested.

The story so far: Anthony Simcoe spoke in an online chat (references abound on other sites), laying some blame on Henson’s owners, EMTV. Rockne O’Bannon has weighed in, however, and says that while EM had some involvement, the main culprit is SCI FI. Late this afternoon (Sunday, 8 Sept), organizer Barbarella confirmed this information: basically, SCI FI wanted to pay less for Season 5, and EM TV refused to lower the price, so SCI FI cancelled. That’s it in a nutshell, folks, all bona fide, verified information. We must focus our efforts on SCI FI, although letters to EM, advertisers, and other media outlets to get the word out certainly help as well.

pick it up… i’m sorry to say…. becasue usa owns scifi..

as to the others… it would be a huge boon for upn.. they can’t keep the wed 9-10 spot after enterprise filled… but that would be just a pipe dream.

we’re not even half thru season 4 yet. so at least they still have time to wrap it up…

I cant believe the shows these networks are cancelling or not picking up.
Farscape was a great show yet they cancel it. There isnt anything else even half as good.
what do they have besides that, stupid dark angel or some pathetic mutant x junk.

Also they didnt pick up the new babylon 5 series The Rangers, plus they canned the crusade series.

These TV networks are really out of touch.
