J. Michael Straczynski asks fans to help make the series happen


After checking Michael Straczynski Earlier this month, Babylon 5 fans learned that there is a second Babylon 5 The project that was not only in the works … has been completed and is scheduled to be launched in 2023. Of course, everything should remain silent until an official announcement is made, which may still be some time away, given that everything is not going to fall Until next year. But where does that leave the “Floor-Up” fate of JMS Babylon 5 Pilot reboot for the CW? Glad you asked because JMS took to Twitter today for a big update. Depending on what he was up to, it looks like the end of the month could be the decision time for the project (as we’ve heard a lot about Season 4 of… Stargirl in the capital). And while the decision may seem like it rests solely with the CW’s new owners coming Nexstar Media Group, JMS makes clear that fans should also contact Warner Bros. Television to let them know that they support the project for a serial order.

The fate of the pilot of #Babylon 5 . may be decided [at the] end of this month. Although a lot of [The CW] Purchased by [Nexstar Media Group]the decision is also highly dependent on [Warner Bros TV]. If fans want to show their support for B5 and tell them you want it to happen, now is the time,” JMS wrote in his tweet earlier today (along with the hashtag #B5onCWin23). Here’s a look at what happened there from JMS heading into today’s call to hold Weapon:

JMS first revealed that the pilot had not been captured but Pedowitz spoke with him to confirm that the pilot was still in active development back in the day. February of this year. JMS began its update by noting the biggest news surrounding The CW over the past few weeks and how it will play a factor in “the number of pilots, and the genre, that can be picked during this transition.” This transition? Network sale rumors by Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global (formerly ViacomCBS) to Nexstar. As JMS wrote, “pre-existing deals” and “pre-commitments” will play a major role in the decision-making process.

After I realized that a file Babylon 5 The pilot was not selected, JMS shared outreach by Pedowitz to explain the pilot’s condition. “I got a call from Mark Bedowitz, president of The CW. (I have to mention Mark is a great guy and a longtime fan of B5. He worked with Warners when the show first aired, and he always made sure we got him copies of episodes before they aired because he didn’t want Waiting to see what happens next),” JMS revealed. describing the pilot as a “damned good script” [Pedowitz] He said he’s taken the very unusual step of rolling out the project and pilot scenario next year, keeping the B5 in active development while the dust settles on the CW sale.”

Straczynski’s series proposal focuses on John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner In the original series), an Earth Force officer with a mysterious background is assigned to Babylon 5, a five-mile-long space station in neutral space, a port of call for travelers, smugglers, corporate explorers, and foreign diplomats simultaneously an uneasy peace and the constant threat of war. His arrival leads to a fate beyond anything he could have imagined, as an expedition company on Earth accidentally causes a conflict with a civilization a million years ahead of us, putting Sheridan and the rest of the B5 crew in the line of fire as the last and best. Hope for the survival of the human race.
