The 1990s science fiction series Babylon 5 will be included in HBO Max streaming starting Jan. 26.
The series tells the story of an Earth-built space station in neutral territory where the galaxy’s powers, big and small, agree to meet and resolve conflicts, but becomes the center of political intrigue and ultimately a war between ancient agents of chaos and order.
According to Engadget, Warner Bros. remastered the series from scans of original camera negatives, and this version of Babylon 5 streaming on HBO Max will also be available for purchase from digital download storefronts like Amazon and iTunes, where available.
Here are some details on the remaster from one of the show’s original VFX wizards:
