Our Warrior Dreams Have Come True: Xena is Back
Posted On Mar 15, 2016
The reboot rumors are true! The Hercules spin-off Xena: Warrior Princess is coming back to your TV screen after 20 long years! Cue the Xena battle cry!
Remember Xena’s right hand and best friend Gabrielle? Well, they are now leaving the friend zone and entering into a full-fledged relationship. The innuendos and lingering looks the two shared now all make sense.
The show’s writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach wrote in a Tumblr Q&A, “There is no reason to bring back Xena if it is not there for the purpose of fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown subtextually in first-run syndication in the 1990s.”
Sources say the new Xena will be the next superhero for our generation, a mix of Lawless’ charm and Katniss Everdeen’s smarts. The original producers Rob Tapert and Sami Raimi are on board, and Lucy Lawless (the original Xena) has shown much interest in putting her warrior armor back on.
What a time to be alive. Xena is back and out of the closet. Now the only question is, how are they going to come back from her horrid decapitation in the series finale.
Long live Xena Warrior Princess!
