With the return of The X-Files and The Evil Dead to the small screen, we sort of guessed that the floodgates may have opened… and now it looks like it might have happened.
It seems that NBC are now looking into returning Xena: Warrior Princess to our screens with the help of original creators and executive producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert.
It’s unknown if Lucy Lawless will return in some capacity or other, although it is clear that a new actress is being sought for the lead role.
Lawless only last week told Hitfix that she’d love to see Xena return to TV screens.
I’ll not lie, Xena and its companion show Hercules passed me by, but I do know they had a massive fan base among my friends… so now the big question: Who else could play Xena in the new series?
Let us know…
UPDATE: Yeah…about that revival…um…Xena herself, Lucy Lawless took to Twitter and posted the following statement:
“Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I’d love it to happen one day but it’s still in the wishful thinking stage.”
So yeah, temper your expectations a bit, cause it may not be what we were told.
