Because they like nice safe guaranteed returns. Established franchises are much more likely to produce that than new ones.

That can be taken comfortingly ("B5 has a passionate fan base!") or cynically ("The studios aren't interested in anything surprising... and B5 has always been surprising...")

If you really want hope, though, latch on to JMS's comment about his contract. If the CW sale sinks this, he'll just start over. Disappointing, yes. Delaying, certainly. But not dooming.
