Crew talk end of season 3 and more in the Farscape Magazine
by Dani Moure - Monday, October 1st 2001

Category: Old News

SPOILER ALERT... There may be spoilers in this post, so take note of the subject and beware!

In the latest issue of the Farscape Magazine (issue 3), a number of people comment on the end of season 3, and the beginning of season 4.

David Kemper mentioned that the show adopted a "closed set" policy during filming of the season finale, saying just prior to shooting, "We will not be entertaining any media of any kind on set during the filming of our season-ender. We will not be releasing scripts, teasers, spoilers, or any hints of any kind... We cannot have a situation where a leak might spoil the surprise."

Of season four, Kemper said that the cast and crew would face further "conflicting pressures" and "dichotomies". He added, "The series becomes both easier and harder to make. Easier because we all know and love the characters, and great stories seem to suggest themselves effortlessly. Harder because the audience is becoming familiar along with us, and a constant craving for 'the new' forces us to search deeper [and] work harder to accommodate."

Rockne O'Bannon describes his script for the penultimate episode of the season (episode 21) as "a particularly significant episode for Captain Crais", whilst director Andrew Prowse describes the finale as "a story of hard action, huge emotion, brilliant visual effects and incredible hard work".

In addition to this short article (of which only excerpts are provided here), there's David Kemper's superb-as-usual column, which talks about the season finale and really must be read to be understood, along with interviews with Anthony Simcoe, Lani Tupu, all-new fiction and much more. Hopefully we may post some more excerpts later this week.
