  • NBC scraps Xena: Warrior Princess reboot

The planned Xena: Warrior Princess reboot was never going to feature Lucy Lawless (boo!), but it was going to feature an openly gay relationship between the new Xena and her protégé (yay!). The reboot would have been written by Javier Grillo-Marxuach, but THR has confirmed with NBC Entertainment presaident Jennifer Salke that the show is not moving forward.

Salke said NBC would be open to a reboot in the future. She states that "we looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn't warrant the reboot".

She suggested NBC might come back to it eventually "because it's such a beloved title", but the version that was in the works up until now "is dead".

Itself a spinoff of the Sam Raimi produced Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess debuted in fall 1995, ran for 6 seasons and 134 episodes total, and signed off in spring 2001.

Grillo-Marxuach has since engaged with fans on his own blog, reposting upset outbursts without comment, and directly responding to others who have expressed their sorrow, rage, frustration and confusion. But a few months after Grillo-Marxuach departed the project, NBC has canned the modern-day update of the Chakram-wielding female warrior. But it seems only now that Salke is confirming the reboot's status. Xena seemed like a natural choice to bring back too, as both the series and titular character have retained a fiercely loyal fan base in the 15-plus years since the two-part series finale originally aired.

In the eyes of many fans, Xena and Gabrielle's relationship extended far beyond their adventures battling mythological creatures through Ancient Greece.

"There is no reason to bring back Xena if it is not there for the goal of fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown subtextually in first-run syndication in the 1990s". Her sidekick, Gabrielle, was played by Renee O'Connor.

What do you think the reasoning behind the cancellation is?
