Xena: Warrior Princess now has a fighting chance of returning. Deadline reports that NBC’s revival of the popular ’90s series is making progress.
The original action-adventure series premiered in 1995 and ran for six seasons until its cancellation in 2001.
So far, NBC has apparently hired former Lost staffer Javier Grillo-Marxuach to write the revival, alongside original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi.
Though, the one key part of Xena: Warrior Princess is still missing. Star Lucy Lawless, who played the Amazonian warrior, has still not committed to reprise her iconic role. Currently, Lawless stars on Sam Raimi’s new project, Starz’ Ash vs. Evil Dead.
What do you think? Were you a fan of the original Xena: Warrior Princess? Would you watch a reboot without Lawless?
