Warrior Princess


After Evil Dead, Sam Rami could do no wrong in my book. Case in point Xena Warrior Princess and her hot sidekick Gabrielle. I did not like Hercules but would stay up late to watch this one. I honestly did not discover this show until I read about Bruce Campbell doing a guest appearance and Ted Rami being a character.

On July 20, 2015, it was reported that NBC is developing a Xena reboot series, with Raimi and Tapert returning as executive producers, with the show's debut sometime in 2016. Insiders are also requesting that Lawless also return to the series as Xena, as well as take up a role in the show's production. A day later, Lawless tweeted that the reboot is a rumor. On August 13, 2015, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed the reboot is in development. It was announced from Entertainment Weekly thatJavier Grillo-Marxuach will serve as writer and producer for the reboot.

In a post on Tumblr Grillo-Marxuach made the statement that they will be "fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown subtextually in first-run syndication in the 1990s," which several websites such as the guardian and Newsweek have taken it to mean "Xena will be an out and proud lesbian." These articles have resulted in frustration from fans regarding the apparent erasure of Xena's bisexuality, but Grillo-Marxuach has answered "it feels like - from a few sentences - everyone has already made up their mind about what it is i am doing. i would prefer people be surprised by the story."

I guess only time will tell if we get a new version.
