NBC to Reboot ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’/ Lucy Lawless Involved?


NBC is looking to reboot 90’s fantasy series “Xena: Warrior Princess.” Original producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are involved in the project, slated for release in 2016. Lucy Lawless, who played Xena for the show’s six seasons, will most likely play a role in front of the camera and behind the scenes, says THR.

Described as a “modern reboot” with a protagonist who is parts Xena and parts Katniss of Hunger Games fame, the project is in the early stages and seeking a writer.

Lawless has teased a potential reboot for years. The show debuted in 1995 and has only grown in popularity since it ended its run in 2001. Lawless has also stayed on top of her game with a number of high profile roles, including that of ill-fated Lucretia on the Starz original series “Spartacus,”
