Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on Nov. 19 will release on Blu-ray Disc the complete “Farscape” TV series, in time for the science-fiction series’ 20th anniversary.
The Blu-ray Disc set includes all 88 episodes, more than 15 hours of archival special features, and the series finale miniseries “Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars.”
“Farscape” was produced originally for the Nine Network and on the Sci-Fi Channel in March 1999. It was produced by The Jim Henson Company and Hallmark Entertainment. The Henson Company provided the alien make-up and prosthetics.
The series was supposed to last for five seasons, but was canceled after four, ending on a cliffhanger. Rights to the series were later acquired by co-producer Brian Henson, who directed a three-hour miniseries finale, “Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars.”
Earlier this year, in March, all four seasons of “Farscape” as well as “Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars” were made available on Amazon Prime Video in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Nordics, and several other countries.
