New Babylon 5 Project Coming Says J. Michael Straczynski

Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski promises “something” coming soon... only it won’t be the reboot.

Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski teased a cryptic new project on Twitter, carefully managing expectations by confirming that it wasn’t the long-brewing Babylon 5 reboot.

“Nothing to do with the reboot/reimagining... and everything to do with the project that we've been working on in secret for two years,” said Straczynski.

“Exactly two weeks from today, start watching the skies.”

Observant fans have noted the quote is taken from 2010: The Year We Make Contact (1984).

Hopes are obviously pinned on a new live-action show, but a documentary or audio drama is also plausible given Straczynski’s keenness to reunite with the surviving members of the original cast and his prior work with Seeing Ear Theatre.

He added: “It’s something. I won’t let you down.”
