The internet recently exploded with news that a Xena: Warrior Princess revival series was underway. Unfortunately, it seems we were led astray with the rumor mill, as Lucy Lawless has taken to Twitter to explain where the truth has been exaggerated.
Sorry, friends! news of a #Xena reboot is just a rumor. I’d love it to happen one day but it’s still in the wishful thinking stage.

If nothing else, however, the excitement that the rumors created stands as an indication that people do want Xena to return to TV. So perhaps this will be the push that the studios need to take it out of the “wishful thinking” stage and into the “let’s make it happen” one.
