In a time when reboots abound from film to television, there are a few noticeable titles missing. The reboot of Charmed upgraded the story of witch sisters to fit a modern, intersectional audience. Roswell, New Mexico took inspiration from the original teen show but is back with the dream team that brought fans The Vampire Diaries.
Not all reboots evoke nostalgia. Rather, they make the franchise their own, like Netflix's The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, turning the bright and sunny Sabrina the Teenage Witch into a gritty horror show. While the trend lasts, here are 10 shows that should get a reboot.
#5 XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS
The spinoff of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys had its own successful run of six seasons. Thankfully, visual and special effects improved with advanced technology, which would make a reboot of the adventure dramedy even better.
It's hard to step into the shoes of the legendary Lucy Lawless, but another fine actress out there could take on the mantle. Also, the show wouldn't have to beat around the bush for so long regarding the nature of Xena and Gabrielle's relationship. It's time for the queer representation the fans deserve.
