It looks like Xena: Warrior Princess won’t be coming back anytime soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, plans have been scrapped for NBC’s planned reboot.
Inspired the ’90s TV series starring Lucy Lawless, the revival reportedly “would have explored the romantic relationship that existed between Xena (Lawless) and her sidekick, Gabrielle (played by Renee O’Connor in the original).” Neither Lawless nor O’Connor were attached to the reboot project.
When asked about the Xena revival, NBC chief Jennifer Salke said the reboot isn’t happening right now:
“Nothing is happening on that right now. We looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn’t warrant the reboot. I’d never say never on that one because it’s such a beloved title, but the current incarnation of it is dead.”
