“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.

Fusing live-action, digital effects, and state-of-the-art puppetry and prosthetics from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, Farscape has been hailed by TV Guide as one of the 25 Best Cult TV Shows. Emmy-nominated and winner of two Saturn Awards, Farscape, created by Rockne S. O’Bannon, 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.
