Movie / Reboot: WB Is Out
Somehow I missed this news, but a thread on the Babylon 5 group on Facebook referenced a tweet by JMS in January this year where he quoted a Warner Bros executive as saying “We have no plans” to do anything B5 “ever”.
Here’s that tweet:
@Whyrusss @WBHomeEnt WB TV Exec to my agent: "We have no plans to do anything with B5 in TV, new or reruns, ever." Same for other PTEN shows

This isn’t a massive surprise if you’ve been following this story for a while. It seems that there are some rights issues because of the PTEN Consortium being a shared resource for several networks, so the rights might be tied up in knots for the forseeable.
