According to the most recent episode of the Hollywood Babble-On, Kevin Smith says he's been approached by MGM to create a Buckaroo Banzai tv series.

MGM is looking for another movie-to-series property like Fargo. Smith's turn at directing an Episode of The Flash led MGM to connect with Smith on this.

He says his plan is to have season 1 re-create the movie, then season 2 create the unmade sequel "Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League". He'd like to bring back cast members of the movie to appear in the series as villans.

I really hope this happens. I throw out the occasional quote to my kids for my own amusement. They have no idea what it all means but I consider it a parenting time bomb. Someday they'll see the movie and go 'ooooohhhh!'

I don't know if Kevin Smith is the right person to be behind this, but it would be great to see it.

This project almost got made back around 1996-97, with Earl Mac Rauch writing a pilot script for a potential Banzai TV series (with Peter Weller actually attached to star), along with some CGI test footage getting produced by Foundation Imaging (of Babylon 5 fame):
