NBC is looking to revive Xena Warrior Princess. That’s according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter who says the planned reboot is still in very early stages and is looking for a writer. Xena which went off the air in 2001 was originally played by Lucy Lawless who has been championing a return to the character though it’s unclear whether or not she’ll have a role in this reboot. More than likely though she’ll be a producer.
Original series producers Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert are currently involved. It’s said that producers are looking for someone with the charm and charisma of Lawless and the smarts of Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen to play the new Xena. It’s also unclear if the reboot would be a mini series like X-Files or Heroes Reborn or if it will run multiple seasons. Though it’s said that those involved are hoping for an ongoing series.
