......'Babylon 5' possibly being rebooted for the CW [ in development ]......


Babylon 5 Creator J. Michael Straczynski Developing Reboot for The CW

....J. Michael Straczynski is returning to outer space, with a “from-the-ground-up reboot” of Babylon 5 for The CW.

The original Babylon 5 debuted in 1993 and presented a future-history story covering the years 2257-2262, with each year corresponding to one season. In doing so, Babylon 5 is regarded as the first TV series to introduce viewers to the concept of a five-year arc, with a defined beginning, middle and end. Straczynski won over a dozen awards for his work on the series, including two Hugo Awards, the Saturn Award and the Ray Bradbury Award.

Following the original series’ five-season run, which netted five Emmy nominations and two wins (for makeup and special visual effects), Straczynski continued to tell stories in the Babylon 5 universe — with the TNT series Crusade, feature-length films, and a series of novels, novelizations, short stories and comics from DC.

TVLine has learned that the reboot Straczynski is developing for The CW follows John Sheridan, an Earthforce officer with a mysterious background, who is assigned to Babylon 5, a five-mile-long space station in neutral space. Babylon 5 serves as a port of call for travelers, smugglers, corporate explorers and alien diplomats at a time of uneasy peace and the constant threat of war. Sheridan arrival triggers “a destiny beyond anything he could have imagined,” when an exploratory Earth company accidentally triggers a conflict with a civilization a million years ahead of us, putting him and the rest of the B5 crew in the line of fire as the last, best hope for the survival of the human race.

Straczynski — who most recently created, wrote and show-ran (with the Wachowskis) Netflix’s Sense8 — will write and executive-produce (through his Studio JMS) the new Babylon 5, which is a Warner Bros. Television project.



in development............?!

Wow! It’ll suck but I’ll still watch and hope it’s more like STNG vs STOS. But I’ll take even a pale sequel.

With JMS involved I am cautiously hopeful. I hope they avoid the mistake of recreating the original too closely and let it develop its own feel.

Confidence is — Uh, maybe.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Since it's the CW, he (Sheridan) will probably be a high school student or a vampire. Maybe a werewolf.

Wow. Cautiously optimistic. JMS has a good reputation of thinking things through and it is pretty obvious that B5 was and is his best, most cared for a project. If you look into how much he had to go against in the 90s this should be child’s play.

Will be hard to recast Londo/G’kar/Bester/Vir. Probably a bit of a blessing that most of the original cast has passed away so they will not be doing cameos as different characters. It seriously had a curse on the actors.



Hopefully there will be lots of human style sex

Ghosts might be the next fad.

Or they could reboot Almost Human and go for the Trifecta.

I can only hope JMS can stop it from being STD'd!

I enjoyed Almost Human a lot.

Karl Urban was OK, but I've always liked Michael Ealy, and his character was really good.

I'd be disappointed to see a remake, because I don't think I could enjoy nearly as much.


But Humans was a great show, and I wish it got at least one more season.

Aside from the fact that it was a great show, I loved looking at Gemma Chan and Ruth Bradley.

Nope, the SyFy network remake on a British show.

A vampire, and a warewolf are best friends, and their house has a ghost.
