Xena reboot shelved by the powers that be at NBC

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Source</a>


I am just starting to wonder what is wrong with the powers that be that run the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) these days.

A few years ago they shelved a potential reboot to the “Wonder Woman” television series which would been well received by the Wonder Woman Nation to become a possible hit television show before actress Gal Gadot worked her magic in the “Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Wonder Woman” movies that came out recently.

Even though I am not a fan of Xena Warrior Princess which ran of network television from 1995-2001, the popularity of that show inspired the C W Network to pickup from the Columbia Broadcasting Service (CBS) the “Supergirl” television show after one season at CBS.

Now the executives at NBC have refused to reboot the “Xena  Warrior Princess television series despite the popularity of the Wonder Woman movie which has been the biggest box office draw of any super hero character male or female.

The only hope is if there is going to be a Xena Warrior Princess reboot, it would be either on the internet or maybe in syndication if there is any interests in bringing her back for her fan base to enjoy.

  1. Zena was produced in New Zealand. The history in the program was not accurate but taking it from a non serious view, she is a heroine . Yes, it is pagan as the series of Hercules. To be honest Zena had more spark than Hercules. The character of Hercules series was as on stage as he was off stage, exactly the same. Some nice guy who used to be a truck driver in America, nice as a person.
    Not much content in it but light entertainment

  2. The issue for TV right now is the cost of production. For example, while it doesn’t apply to the example of Xena, Big Bang costs more per episode (roughly 20 million) than it generates in ad income for CBS first run. That means they (the studio) have to make money in syndication. They have, but it is something to think about.

    Secondly, the me-to television world sometimes over indulging me and the TOO. In this case, they may reconsider but for now, it may be a good decision!
