Badass ladies are taking over pop culture. There’s Agent Carter on TV, Wonder Woman about to hit screens, and of course, The Hunger Games‘ Katniss Everdeen. And now, the most badass warrior of all just might join them.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC is thinking about bringing back Xena: Warrior Princess in a “modern reboot.” The show, which got its start as a Herculesspinoff in the ’90s, starred Lucy Lawless as an Amazon warrior going on adventures with her sidekick, Gabrielle. Execs hope that Lawless would have a hand in the production both in front of and behind the camera, but it’s unclear whether she would revive her character.
Lawless brought everyone down a peg, saying things were “still in the wishful thinking stage.” But Variety reports that hope is not lost—things are just in very early talks, so anything could happen.
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.
