The Openly Gay Xena: Warrior Princess Reboot Is Dead
Aug 24, 2017, 01:38
Sad news, fans of the Warrior Princess - the modern revival of Xena is no longer happening.
The project already seemed to be on the outs after the reboot's intended showrunner Javier Grillo-Marxuach departed the writing of the pilot in April.
It was rumored that these creative differences stemmed from him wanting to put the lesbian relationship front-and-center, which lead to today's announcement from NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke that the reboot won't go forward at all.
"I'd never say never on that one because it's such a beloved title, but the current incarnation is dead", she said, adding that "I need someone to come in witha point of view about what they want to do".
However, Salke did say that because Xena was "such a beloved title" she would "never say never" to a reboot. It's unclear whether or not NBC disagreed on that point, or whether their problems with Grillo-Marxuach's vision were unrelated to Xena and Gabrielle's sexuality.
"Xena will be a very different show made for very different reasons", he said during a Q&A on Tumblr. This was something Grillo-Marxuach hoped to correct, as he revealed to THR earlier in the year.
Xena originally debuted in 1995, as a spin-off to the equally mythological TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.
"There is no reason to bring back Xena if it is not there for the objective of fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown subtextually in first-run syndication in the 1990s", Grillo-Marxuach said.
