Shout! Studios will release Farscape: The Complete Series — 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray Disc Nov. 21.
The 22-disc set includes all 88 episodes, the miniseries “Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars,” and hours of new and previously released extras.
The show follows the adventures of astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder), a test pilot whose experimental spacecraft is flung through a wormhole to a galaxy on the other side of the universe. Hunted by the relentless Peacekeepers, Crichton allies himself with a group of alien refugees on the living spaceship Moya while searching for a way home.
“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 canceled after four seasons, ending on a cliffhanger. Rights to the series were later acquired by co-producer Brian Henson, who directed the three-hour ”Peacekeeper Wars” as a finale.
Legacy extras include 30 audio commentaries, the “Memories of Moya” retrospective documentary; archival featurettes “In The Beginning: A Look Back With Brian Henson,” “Making of a Space Opera,” “Farscape Undressed,” “Farscape: The Story So Far,” “Zhaan Forever” With Virginia Hey, composer Guy Gross discussesing the season three theme, and a look back at season three; “Inside Farscape” Featurettes “Villains,” “Visual Effects” and “Save Farscape”; 12 “Listening In With Composer Guy Gross” featurettes; behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and creative team; deleted scenes, director’s cut scenes, and an alternate version of the season two premiere; video profiles of creator/executive producer Rockne O’Bannon and executive producer/writer David Kemper; season two bloopers; and original TV promos.
