Xena Warrior Princess reboot gets Lost writer

The Xena reboot has edged one step closer to reality

Shown: Lucy Lawless (as Xena)

Word has been circulating about a potential Xena: Warrior Princess reboot for a while, although there has been little concrete in the way of news. Now, this has all changed, as the news new series, helmed by NBC and original creators Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi, now has a writer in the form of Javier Grillo-Marxuach.

Best known for his work on Lost and The Middleman, as well as the likes of Helix, Medium and Jake 2.0, Grillo-Marxuach seems like a decent enough choice, with experience in a wide range of TV. Even though Lucy Lawless may or may not be involved, it would still be nice to see her back in some capacity.

She herself said she’d been “pitching my ass off to make it happen”, citing the likes of the returning Ash Vs Evil Dead as reason enough why a remake could work. Hopefully she’ll be right.

An air date for the Xena: Warrior Princess reboot is yet to be announced. For more news about the biggest TV series, pick up the latest issue of SciFiNow.
