“It’s always so much fun when we open the lot to the public for a special event, and the twentieth anniversary of Farscape is the perfect time for a party!” said Brian Henson. “Fans have always shown amazing support for Farscape, and new audiences are discovering the series on Amazon Prime. I am certain we will see some incredible costumes representing all the Uncharted Territories.” 

Farscape follows astronaut John Crichton who, during an experimental mission, is hurled across a thousand galaxies. In his quest to return home, he finds himself aboard a starship with escaping political prisoners from different alien cultures. Crichton must survive in a world he barely understands, keeping one step ahead of the Peacekeepers, the deadly mercenaries who stop at nothing to capture him.

Fusing live-action, digital effects, puppetry and prosthetics from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, Farscape has been named by TV Guide as one of the 25 Best Cult TV Shows. The Emmy®-nominated Farscape gained a loyal international fan following that has propelled multiple products including comics, collectibles, games, and publishing.
