On San Diego Comic-Con,J. Michael Straczynski (creator and the showrunner of B5) revealed that Warner Bros approached him with a proposition to produce a New Babylon 5 series.
New B5, is it a truth or just a dare?
In July 2011, J. Michael Straczynski announced that Warner Bros approached him with a proposition to produce a New Babylon 5 series.
During last year WB told J.M. Straczynski about a new distribution system that they were attempting to launch and how they wanted him to produce a new Babylon 5 for that system.
J.M.Straczynski – after few unsuccessful and cheep spin-offs of B5 – requested from Warner Bros 2-3 million dollars per episode, commission a full season and full creative control.
They accepted, but few months later WB’s new distribution system failed leaving new B5 to uncertain faith.
Still, Straczynski hopes for another chance to create a remake of B5 that his fans were expecting for years.
