XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS Reboot In The Works

THR is reporting that NBC and Universal International are in early development of a Xena: Warrior Princess reboot. The show was a spinoff of Hercules: The Legend Continues, the show was created by writer/director/producer Rob Tapert. The show aired from 1999 to 2001 and made Lucy Lawless a star.

Sam Raimi who was an executive producer of the original series is also involved in the reboot alongside Tapert, but it’s unclear what involvement Lawless would have. According to THR the new Xena will “have the charisma and charm of Lawless and the smarts of The Hunger Games‘ Katniss as producers are said to be looking for a sophisticated and smart superhero for a new generation.”
