If you want to dive into some late 90s sci-fi this weekend, “Farscape” is streaming for free on Prime Video. The show is coming up on its 20th Anniversary and fans new and old can watch the entire series. The show was a hit back in the day, featuring Ben Browder, Claudia Black, and Virginia Hey.
You can find all four seasons, plus the Emmy-nominated mini-series finale, right here on Prime Video.
The launch is part of the 20th anniversary of the show, which first premiered on March 19, 1999. In addition to the launch on Prime Video, enthusiasts can expect fan events and various licensing initiatives including a special edition vinyl soundtrack release this summer. Retailers will also be launching products from Chronicle Collectibles, Toy Vault, and Trevco in the coming months.
“Farscape is one of my most favorite productions, and I am so honored by the ‘Scapers’ who continue to love it and share it with other sci-fi fans. Premiering the series and the beautiful HD remastered mini-series on Prime Video is a great way to celebrate the 20th anniversary with the Farscape community,” said Brian Henson, chairman of The Jim Henson Company and executive producer of Farscape.
The show used live-action, digital effects, puppetry, and prosthetics from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop to create the series. Rockne S. O’Bannon created the show, which was the first original series to air on SYFY.
Farscape follows astronaut John Crichton who, during an experimental space mission, is hurled across a thousand galaxies to an alien world. In his quest to return to Earth, he finds himself aboard a starship populated by escaping political prisoners from a variety of alien cultures. Crichton must rise to the challenge of surviving in a world he barely understands, keeping one step ahead of the pursuing Peacekeepers, a race of deadly mercenaries who will stop at nothing to capture him.
