Xena IS Coming….

XenaSo, this has been floating around the rumor mill for a while now. Apparently, despite comments recently from Lucy Lawless, THR is reporting that a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot is coming! In a comment to THR, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said:

“Yes, we’re in the early stages of developing a new take on Xenaand we’re looking for a writer. We want to do it.”


Greenblatt confirmed that original series executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi will produce the coming project that may possibly surface sometime in 2016. As for the possibility of Lawless joining the cast, that is still open. Specifically, Greenblatt said:
“We’d love to have Lucy be a part of it — if we felt that her presence didn’t overshadow the direction we take with it. I’m not sure how she could be part of it if she wasn’t playing Xena, and I don’t know if that’s a direction we’ll ever go.”

Well, stay tuned kids….
