Babylon 5 Updates: What CW President Mark Pedowitz Has To Say?

“It is very much in active development, I personally spoke with Straczynski back when we picked up the pilot. I’m a huge fan of ‘Babylon 5’, on a personal basis, I’ve seen every episode of the series.

I’ve known Joe for a long, long time. I’d love to bring back that story in some shape or form, I think it’s perfect for the CW,” Pedowitz shared at the time. Nearly four months later, JMS is offering an update and some clarification on both of his Babylon 5 projects. Yes, you read that correctly….

“Since there seems to be some confusion about all things B5, let me clarify: B5 Project 1 is the reboot/reimagining for CW, which is awaiting a production order. Project 2 is the one we’ve been doing in secret with some of the cast,” JMS wrote in one of his two tweets.

“Until there’s an official announcement, all of us are sworn to secrecy and can’t tell you what it is or even what medium it’s in (film/audio/video/game/print/semaphore), I can only tell you that it’s done and has a ’23 release date. I hope this clears up any confusion.”

Babylon 5: When It Will Release?

The secret Babylon 5 project has been the talk of the town. JMS offered details on it before the end of last month. The good news is that the project is done. All the main B5 cast members will be coming back to the show. There is no release date for Babylon 5 as yet. The makers will soon reveal the release date of Babylon 5.

Babylon 5 Pilot

JMS first revealed that the pilot is not yet shot. Pedowitz has spoken with JMS and has confirmed that the pilot was still in active development back in February of this year. JMS has given an update about the referencing of the news surrounding The CW in the past few weeks.  Warner Bros Discovery and Paramount Global will be releasing the pilot of the show soon.

JMS wrote, that “pre-existing deals” and prior “commitments” will be playing a big part in the decision-making process. The Babylon 5 pilot had not been picked up, JMS and Pedowitz explained the pilot’s status.

“I received a call from Mark Pedowitz, President of The CW. (I should mention that Mark is a great guy and a long-time fan of B5. He worked for Warners when the show was first airing, and always made sure we got him copies of the episodes before they aired because he didn’t want to wait to see what happened next.),” JMS revealed.

“Calling the pilot ‘a damned fine script,’ he [Pedowitz] said he was taking the highly unusual step of rolling the project and the pilot script into next year, keeping B5 in active development while the dust settles on the sale of the CW.”

Straczynski’s Series Proposal

Straczynski’s series proposal will focus on John Sheridan. He is an Earthforce officer and has a mysterious background. He is assigned to Babylon 5. The series will focus on a five-mile-long space station in neutral space. It will be a port of call for travelers, smugglers, corporate explorers, and alien diplomats.

They want to feel peace during the constant threat of war. His arrival will trigger a destiny beyond what anyone could have imagined. An exploratory Earth company has triggered a conflict with civilization. The series is set million years ahead of us and will be putting Sheridan and the rest of the B5 crew in the line of fire. We hope for the survival of the human race.
