This is the quote from the article/ How does it equate to JMS not doing S3?
I read it to say that if it doesn't get renewed for a 3rd season, he won't
try later to revive/continue it......

QUESTION: What's going on with Jeremiah?

JMS: If Jeremiah doesn't continue for a third season, I won't return to it.
Showtime has been great, but I'm tired of dealing with MGM.

BTW, I am Lyta on the B5TV boards. ;)

Here is a con report from THE PULSE who had a run down of the
questions asked and JMS' answers to them:


I know I (and probably a lot of other fans) would be very disappointed
if Jeremiah continued without JMS. :(

I do what I love doing. The money is secondary. The funny thing is, if
you approach life that way, oddly you can often make a good living at
it. --JMS

There was a lot in that article on the Pulse that was really badly reported,
things were misphrased, two different sentences were put into one, sections are
wholly incomprehensible...it's just a train wreck of a piece.

However, even though the article totally misstated the sentence so it didn't
make any sense, the last phrase is correct, in that I have zero desire to
return to a third season of Jeremiah.  Showtime was great, no mistake, but MGM
has overall been the most heinous, difficult and intrusive studio I've ever
worked for.  I've worked for, and had great relations with, Viacom, Universal,
Warner Bros., and a bunch more.  But I will never, ever, work for the present
administration at MGM.

I didn't know why so many other writers had a problem there and never wanted to
go back.  Now I do.
