The SCI FI Channel confirmed that it will not pick up its original series Farscape for a fifth season. “There are no bigger fans of Farscape than we here at SCI FI Channel,” the network said in a statement. “It was one of SCI FI’s first original series and quickly became a critical and fan favorite. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts to reach a broader audience, Farscape has been unable to grow beyond its core fan base. That, coupled with the extreme and growing cost of production, has led to the difficult decision to end the series at the conclusion of season four.”
Now would be an excellent time for the struggling WB or UPN networks to step in and pick up an excellent series.
