According to reports, The CW has now ordered a reboot of late ’90s sci-fi series, Babylon 5. Widely considered one of the best sci-fi series ever made, Babylon 5 ran on TNT for five seasons with 110 episodes, seven TV movies and a pilot film.

Currently in development, original creator J. Michael Straczynski has been tapped to executive produce the project under his Studio JMS imprint alongside Warner Bros. Television. The “from-the-ground-up reboot” is expected to chronicle the story of human military staff and alien diplomats on the space station, Babylon 5. Set between the years of 2257 and 2262 following several major inter-species wars, the quest for galactic diplomacy and trade reveals millennial cyclic conflict highlighting themes of change, loss, oppression, corruption and redemption.
