The news from Hollywood trades and social media that excited Babylon 5 fans: Warner Bros has approved more Babylon 5 for us, from the Creator himself.
To answer all the questions, yes, it’s true, Babylon 5 is in active development as a series for the CW. We have some serious fans over at the network, and they’re eager to see this show happen. I’m hip deep into writing the pilot now, and will be running the series upon pickup.

That JMS is currently writing the pilot, and this news had been kept under wraps since June thrills me. I also hope that since the CW is the new home, that means those rumored remastered versions of the original series will also soon be able to see the light of day (and cause the emptying consumers wallets).
