    Over the last few months, a farscape miniseries has been produced, a firefly movie is being produced, while a Babylon 5 movie should soon start to be produced.

    So come on all you lexx fans out there, show yourselfs! Let us convince the powers that be that as in the above mentioned examples, a continuation of the lexx story should also be done.

    I also have some questions about that. At first I thought it was that they were embarassed by Lexx. Not impossible, since other sections of Salter Street were also. But then I saw some of the stuff they were working on or promoting, so I knew that wasn’t it.

    Why no new Lexx? Perhaps they simply lack that good ol’ American determination to wring every buck they can out of their property? Perhaps they don’t think it would fly with out the supreme bean PD?

    Sadly, AAC is no longer in the producton business, so pestering them will likely be as effective has it has been in the past (hey, KarubaLuna- you ever get a reply?). Maybe if everyone chips in enough could be raised to bribe them to licence the rights so that a some sort of Lexx The Next Degeneration can be produced.

    Alas, no one cares. There’s not enough of a fanbase. And the rest of fandom arrogantly despises this show, “the anti-Trek.”

    It would have to get rerun on a channel that would prominently feature it instead of the wee hours of the morning. From there, a new and as-yet unimaginable cult fanbase would have to form that would make watching LEXX a fashionable thing to do in the eyes of the public at alarge; something that would be featured in a future episode of VH-1’s “I Love the ’00s”.

    If the product can’t be sold, it won’t be made. It doesn’t matter how cool I think it is. I liked Catwoman so no one should listen to my ranting anyway.

    The last that I heard, several months ago, he was out of the country working on a new project or projects. His brother is doing a series for the CBC.

    Attention Lexxians!!!
    There might be a new Lexx movie or even a whole new season! A very rich fan from San Diego will sponsor the production (Xenia Seeberg said so in a chat not long ago), but there is only one problem. The company, which owns the copyright of Lexx doesn’t want to allow it. So, fans, make it happen! Vote here http://www.webpetitions.com/cgi-bin/print_petition.cgi?99498698 and write e-mails to [email protected] to make them allow the new movie!

    Hey, I’m behind it, even if it’s without Kai. I think Stan and Xev deserve that home they’ve been looking for.

    I don’t think Alliance owns season 1 since it was a Showtime Production so maybe there could be a Lexx continuation as “Tales from a Parallel Universe” or “Tales from the Dark Zone”.

    AAC bought the works, Renee.S. TFAPU was put out under the ‘Showtime’ banner, which was a collaberation between CITY-TV, Salter Street, and TIME gmbh. The copyright for TFAPU was held by DZ Productions. All of which boils down to a German-Canadian co-production with Mr Donovan holding all the chips, and said chips got sold off to AAC, which has no interest in production any more and less than no interest in Lexx. Paul Donovan has no interest in Lexx these days as well, but that’s a side issue since AAC owns the whole ball of wax, as it were. Sad, but true.

    I’m going to add my name to the petitions even though I have doubts..No PD? Hmmmm. I don’t think Stan and Xev would survive long without Kai..Ok so Xev’s cluster lizard makes her a tough cookie and Stan can be assertive when pushed but …I don’t know..personally I think they should bring Vlad back but brainwarped to be on their side..betterstill bring back Kai’s psychic shadow but put it into Vlad’s body..now that would be fun bring back Lyekka too..2 girls a transsexual divine executioner and one security guard 4th class …

    A new LEXX series doesn’t need Kai. Xev and Stan are the real heroes of the show.

    Yeah Flamegrape I think you are right…Afterall Kai wanted to be really dead..but a lot of people will miss him..I will ..I loved the way he would just fall from high places and land in a heap but…the show if it’s to survive needs to move on…and the characters need to develop..to deepen…this was beginning to happen anyway, certainly for Stan perhaps less so for Xev…she needs to be able to get away from the sexual stereotype and move more into the cluster lizard – I reckon Xenia has wanted to this anyway…

    As Lexx was written, it wouldn’t have worked without Kai (or a similar character) It was an ensemble-piece which required the stiff as a straight-man. New season equals new writing, the chance of new characters, and new rules though.

    While I don’t see it happening at all, the LEXX is dead, long live Little Lexx! None of the old characters need be central (I was never into Xev I must admit, so would be happy to see that character replaced. Preferably by Zev! ๐Ÿ˜† I figure her soul could have migrated when she she was killed in Terminal anyway).

    Really, rather than a continuation, I’d far rather see a fast-paced epic prequel mini-series (pre-LEXX) starting from the Insect Wars and leading up to the formation of the Divine Order and the Cluster. His Divine Shadow would become the protagonist, and it would be told from his perspective. Still, it would have to work as a stand-alone piece, I think. It might be done as a series of “movies” rather like S1.

    Noone got any replys from AA, but let’s keep the hope. We’ve decided to do the same thing every first saturday of the month. So the next day for e-mails is 6th August. The petition is up and running again, you can sign it any time, also draw others to sign too. Any time ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Lexx is one of the few Sci-Fi TV series to actually be told an END DATE.

    So instead of the crew of the Lexx being held in limbo somewhere. We had the luxury of seeing the end of Lexx.

    Instead of trying to restart Lexx we should support Paul Donovan in a new project.

    The genius team that brought us Lexx must have many more Sci-Fi genre series in their heads. If given the support and chance.. I FOR ONE can’t wait to see what they come up with.

    We are not Star Trek loons. It would be stupid to rehash the Lexx universe over and over and over until we get something horrible like Enterprise was to the Star Trek franchise.

    So instead of the Sci-Fi channel throwing out the SG1 junk.. “Next year the new SG1 L.A.” Oh Please. And don’t get me started on that horrible slow moving juggernaut Battlestar Galactica. Do you BSG fans know that their new Series has barely moved past the 1978 Original Pilot? I mean how slow can they move the thing along. Oh and I saw the attack on the cylon base for fuel. I’ve seen better special effects out of my PS2. Yet the kids seem to love it.

    A petition needs to be started to bring Donovan and team back to Sci-Fi channel. Lets let Lexx live on in our DVD players.
