Xena to be lesbian Warrior Princess in TV reboot

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Mar 16, 2016 6:59 am

XENA is coming back to television and this time there will be no more innuendo — she will be an out and proud lesbian Warrior Princess.

The Independent reports that fans of the original show, which ran for six seasons for 1995-2001 and was one of the most successfully syndicated shows of all time, will see Xena and her ‘best friend’ Gabrielle (Renee O’Connor) as lovers.

In a Tumblr Q&A he announced that all the side glances, touches and lesbian subtext of the 90s version would be explored more openly in the reboot.

The Hollywood Reporter announced in July that NBC was planning a reboot. It said at the time that Lucy Lawless was wanted for an onscreen role but it was unclear if she would reprise her role as Xena. However Lawless recently posted an Instagram picture of her and O’Connor together, suggesting that they are set to be reunited onscreen.
