12 CANCELLED TV SHOWS WE'D LOVE TO SEE REVIVED
BY MATT FOWLER For better or worse, everything old is new again. Reboots are nothing fresh in Hollywood, but it's only recently that TV's caught a severe case of revival fever - bringing back old hit shows with all, or most, of the original cast intact.
A Xena: Warrior Princess reboot, or revival, or reboot-quel, has been a part of the ongoing rumor mill for a decade now - ever since star Lucy Lawless started having high-profile TV gigs again (Spartacus, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, Ash vs. Evil Dead).
The pilot script for a failed 2016 reboot was even released online, with writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach's approval, last year. It's crystal clear though: Fans want this character back, whether she's played by Lawless in a revival or some new face in a rollicking retelling. A Xena comeback is long overdue.
