A reboot of Xena: Warrior Princess could be in the works but will it include Lucy Lawless?
The spin off of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys is rumored to be the latest reboot effort from NBC but, the cult classic’s former star Lucy Lawless tweeted it is just a rumor
“Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I’d love it to happen one day but it’s still in the wishful thinking stage.”

However the rumor persist despite the fact that no writer has been attached to the project and little else is known at this time. Original executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi are said to be involved and are eying 2016 release but whether it would be a full series reboot, a short mini series one off, or if it will happen at all and would 47 year old Lawless reprise her role- who knows.
When the series originally ran, 1995 through 2001, it was one of the most popular shows in syndication airing in 108 countries around the globe and ranking in the top five syndicated programs during each of its six seasons.
So if it does happen, will you watch?
