It has just been announced (via Hollywood Reporter) that the Xena Reboot is DEAD. For now.
NBC's Xena: Warrior Princess reboot is not going forward. After parting ways with writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost) a few months ago, NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said the proposed revival in its most recent form is dead. "Nothing is happening on that right now. We looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn't warrant the reboot," Salke tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I'd never say never on that one because it's such a beloved title, but the current incarnation of it is dead."
Salke confirmed that the network remains open to doing a Xena revival at some point down the line. "I need someone to come in with a point of view about what they want to do," Salke said.
