Shout! TV Celebrates Farscape’s 25th Anniversary with a Marathon of Cast Favorite Episodes

LOS ANGELES – March 13, 2024 – Shout! TV will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the cult-classic television series Farscape with a marathon airing on March 19 on Shout! TV and the 24/7 Farscape channel beginning at 11 am PT / 2 pm ET. The marathon will feature an exclusive introduction from executive producer Brian Henson and include all-new interview segments with Farscape stars Ben Browder (John Crichton) and Gigi Edgley (Chiana). The marathon will air classic and fan-favorite episodes of the series curated by Ben Browder and Gigi Edgley.

Additionally, Shout! TV will be introducing new commercial break interstitials to the Farscape channel in celebration of the anniversary, including trivia, production memories, and more featuring Ben Browder and Gigi Edgley.

Farscape follows astronaut John Crichton as a freak accident during an experimental space mission catapults him across a thousand galaxies to an alien battlefield. Suddenly, he’s trapped among alien creatures wielding deadly technology – a battle that 20th century sci-fi pop culture never prepared him for. Hunted by a merciless military race, Crichton begins his quest for home from a galaxy far, far away…

A fusion of live-action, state-of-the-art puppetry, prosthetics and CGI, Farscape features mind-boggling alien lifeforms, dazzling special effects, edge-of-your-seat thrills, irreverent humor, and unforgettable characters brought to life by the creative minds at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™.

The critically-acclaimed sci-fi adventure series garnered several awards and has become a cult classic across the globe. Fans can watch the entire series, including the Emmy-nominated miniseries Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars, on-demand on Shout! Factory TV and streaming 24/7 on the Farscape FAST channel.
