Xena: Warrior Princess - Reboot Being Considered?
Because apparently enough returning shows (X Files, Heroes, Twin Peaks etc) wasn't enough, a few days ago, it was kind of announced that NBC were considering a reboot of popular fantasy drama, Xena: Warrior Princess could be in the works with a 2016 airdate even being earmarked.
However before anyone could get excited, Xena herself Lucy Lawless later confirmed that the reboot was more a case of "wishful thinking" than an actual promise, even though NBC are supposedly looking for writers and Lawless (who has previously stated her keenness to reprise her infamous role) herself has not been confirmed should the show actually return. The series itself aired for six seasons between 1995 and 2001.
I'm a bit mixed about this one. I loved the show and Lawless is so iconic in the role but given how it actually ended and that it seems you can't move for the amount of reboots either happening or being considered, I'm not sure another one is actually needed. I'll post more information when it becomes available on this one.
