Farscape series producer David Kemper has asked fans to write to SciFi to get the show renewed.
However, Anthony Simcoe (D’Argo,) has been popping in and out of the #farscape chat room over the weekend and he claims that Henson’s parent company, EMTV, has pulled the plug on financing for the show. He claims that SciFi wants it, but EM doesn’t want to foot the bill for production, and SciFi can’t afford to keep the show afloat on its own.
There’s a lot of different stories floating around about what the real reason was, but we probably won’t know who’s right ’till next week. In the meantime, Pilot has already been disassembled and boxed up. 🙁
