Signs and Portents: More B5?

JMS: More Babylon 5 coming?. Came across that on Fark, of all places, and my interest was instantly piqued. Curious, I checked around a bit.

Ignore the following if you have no interest in Babylon 5 (you degenerate):

Straczynski has said:

On the B5 front, there has been something of rather substantial proportion
that’s finally gone from talk to money, such that I’m now working frantically
to meet some deadlines, but there’s nothing I can say about this until after
January 15th, probably closer to the end of that month.

The only thing I can say is that phase one of the new project is a go, hence
the furious writing schedule at this end of things, which is why I’ve been
silent until deciding to kick up some dust on the political discusion. I’ve
been writing my little brains out.

I know the immediate result of this will be speculation, but if we could keep
that to a low roar on the nets to avoid precluding anything, that would be a
wonderfulness. But trust me: I wouldn’t go on about something in this way if
it wasn’t a significant development. Just trust me on this one for a bit and
hold fire until further word.

Interesting. I’ll be anticipating more news on this next month, which should coincide with the release of the Season 4 DVD set.

Then he states:

Oh, yeah…and next year you can expect two new DVD sets that a) include all
of the TV movies in one package (with commentaries from me on “The Gathering”
and “In the Beginning”) and b) package all 13 of the Crusade episodes into one

So, in 2004 I can look forward to the Season 4 and 5 DVD sets, the complete Crusade on DVD, all the TV movies on one set, and the development of some new “project”? Woohoo!
