In a shocking move, Sci Fi Channel has pulled the plug on its critically acclaimed drama Farscape. The show's fourth season the second of which launches in January will be its last. "There are no bigger fans of Farscape than we here at Sci Fi Channel," the network said in a press release. "It was one of Sci Fi's first original series and quickly became a critical and fan favorite. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts to reach a broader audience, Farscape has been unable to grow beyond its core fan-base. That, coupled with the extreme and growing cost of production, has led to the difficult decision to end the series at the conclusion of season four." Naturally, the show's loyal fans are already spearheading "Save Farscape" campaigns.
