A “Babylon 5” reboot is in development at The CW, Variety has learned.
Original series creator J. Michael Straczynski is onboard to write the project. He will also executive producer under his Studio JMS banner. Warner Bros. Television, which produced the original series, will produce the reboot.
The new iteration of the sci-fi series is described as a “from-the-ground-up reboot.”

While I don't like reboots in general (and refuse to watch Abrams'
reboot of Star Trek), this has some hope. From what JMS has said, he
intends to start with the same basic premise but build a new story line >around it, taking advantage of his years of experience since then and
the technical tools that have become available.
My concern is, is CW going to give him a free hand, or are
they meddle it to death the way Fox (?) did to "Crusade".
Does he have "You can't continue it without me" creative
control, or can they kick him off and make Babylon 90210
out of it.
