The series finale ends with the words "To Be Continued" (and a cliffhanger). The Sci Fi channel committed to five seasons, but backed out of the deal after the episode was written. (See Trivia) See more »
Farscape is not the easiest series to get into. You really need to see it from the beginning which is probably one of the reasons the ratings were not that great when it aired on the Sci-Fi Channel.
There is a continuing story here and the characters and their relationships to each other are complex. But this is what makes this show so compelling. Once you get into the flow of this series it is impossible to not be totally entertained and involved.
My recommendation is to rent or buy the box set of the first year and try it for yourself. You will not be sorry.
A new Farscape movie will be shown on Sci-Fi this fall. Apparently it will begin where the series left off. Hopefully this will lead to other movies but at this point, who knows?
