Xena: Warrior Princess - the woman described as having a "lying tongue, savage tendencies, and a blonde girlfriend" by Lucifer himself - could be coming back to our screens - that is, if leading battle-hardened lady Lucy Lawless has her way.
Speaking to Den of Geek, Lucy Lawless revealed her desire to bring back Xena, possibly through the means of crowdfunding:
"I’ve been pitching that, actually. The fans really do want that, and I’ve met some people who’ve crowdfunded some things, and I’m just like, ‘Why don’t we just do that?’"
YES, PLEASE. We NEED to hear Lucy Lawless shrieking her warrior cry again...
There is the slight stumbling block of who actually owns the rights to Xena, which Lawless acknowledges:
"It’s still about who owns the rights to Xena. But it would still be cool to do it again with Renée [O’Connor], me, Ted [Raimi], and Bruce. It’d be a fun little gig, but what that is I don’t really know."
Still, here's a reminder of what the cast looks like now. Hint: Still totally rockin'!
Actress: Lucy Lawless
Actress: Renee O'Connor
The show just wouldn't be the same without Renee O'Connor. Gabrielle and Xena's vital sexual chemistry and 'married couple' bickering was essential, giving us frequent interchanges such as:
Xena: [in a bathtub with Gabrielle] Are you sitting on the soap?
Gabrielle: I was wondering what that was... Hmmm...
All the baths. It was usually baths filled with...
Actor: Ted Raimi
Actor: Kevin Sorbo
Actor: Bruce Campbell
Oh, and *SPOILERS*, but Lucy Lawless isn't about to let a little thing like Xena being dead hold her back:
"So what? Technicality! No one really dies! Screw her head back on, it’s a bit wonky, and she’s got a really bad attitude since she’s been in a box for 20 years, so they’ve got to get Xena’s mojo back, and go and save the world somehow."
Exactly - look at how many times Buffy died! Bring back Xena! Bring back Xena!
