Why Didn't Xena and Gabrielle Ever Hook Up?

6 May 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since its debut in 1995, many fans have wanted to see Xena: Warrior Princess and her faithful companion Gabrielle become a couple. One of the biggest questions contemplated over the years is, 'Why didn't they?' That quandary has finally been answered by executive producer and co-creator Rob Tapert. He has a very good reason why this never happened in the mythology of the hit fantasy series. Though you might not agree with his reasoning.

It didn't take long for fans of the show to start championing a more intimate relationship between Lucy Lawless' title hero and her bard, played by Renee O'Connor. And it is a pairing that has long been championed in the Lgbt community. Lawless had this to say about the allure and love for her Xena character.

"The name Xena means 'stranger'. She felt she was irredeemable. That friendship between Xena and Gabrielle transmitted some message of self-worth, »

No happy endings: lesbian and bisexual characters on TV

4 May 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

TV has a problem with the disproportionate number of lesbian and bisexual characters killed off on screen. Spoilers...

Contains spoilers for Buffy, The 100Pretty Little Liars, Skins, Sleepy Hollow, Torchwood, ER, Carol and Last Tango In Halifax.

The phenomenon of lesbian and bisexual women characters being killed off disproportionately on screen is not new.

Back in the 1930s, the Hays Motion Picture Production Code established that “immoral acts” in Hollywood films had to be followed by appropriately punishing consequences, and this idea that “perversion” should never be rewarded spread to other modes of storytelling, to the extent that Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 novel The Price Of Salt – recently adapted as the critically acclaimed movie Carol – was considered game-changing for including a happy ending for Carol and Therese.

Satisfying conclusions for romances between women shouldn’t still be a surprise, but when Carol was released in cinemas last winter, »

Preview of Xena: Warrior Princess #1

12 April 2016 1:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release tomorrow, Dynamite Entertainment has debuted a preview of Xena: Warrior Princess #1, which we have for you here…

After the Twilight of the Gods, the world is precariously uncertain – and Xena and Gabrielle have been missing from it for twenty-five years. Even without Livia, the power of Rome is growing: Caesar is determined to conquer by lies what he can’t conquer by force, and the people at its edges know what’s coming. (All roads lead to Rome, and Rome is hunting.) Xena and Gabrielle scramble to stop him before they have to wage war against a man they once called a friend. But along the way, Xena will have to confront her past against a rogue band of women warriors, and Gabrielle, whose secret visions are becoming prophecy, will have to protect Xena – at any cost.

Xena Warrior Princess #1 is out on April 13th, priced »

TVInsider has shared the epic first photo, which shows one big kegger going on down in Florida. We don't yet have an officially premiere date for Ash's return.

Ash Vs. Evil Dead Season 2 will pick up right where Season 1 left off. Bruce Campbell's titular hero has left the world of killing Deadites behind. Now, he is living it up in the Florida Keys. And what better way to do that than with a huge kegger on the beach. In this sneak peek, we get to see Ash using his chainsaw hand to slice through the beer keg.

22 March 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you're feeling nostalgic for Attack of the Killer Tomatoes!, then we have a movie for you. Though, Attack of the Killer Donuts might be even dumber than that 1978 cult comedy. We have your first look at this goofy horror thriller, which stars Fredrick Burns, Christine Nguyen, Lauren Elise and Michael Swan. Warning: This might be too much for some of you heavy snackers to take sitting down! In fact, it might just turn you to jelly.

"Xena" Reboot To Make Sexuality More Overt

16 March 2016 8:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back in the 1990s when Lgbt representation on television was incredibly limited or stereotypical, one show managed to buck the trend - "Xena: Warrior Princess". The series revolved around the titular warrior and her sidekick Gabrielle (played by Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor respectively) as they battled mythological creatures throughout Ancient Greece.

It was a deep friendship between the two women that often went beyond that, never getting erotically explicit but often strongly suggested throughout the show's six season run. Those involved in the series had no problem admitting it, Lawless in a 2003 interview saying: "it wasn't just that Xena was bisexual and kinda liked her gal pal and they kind of fooled around sometimes, it was, 'Nope, they're married, man.'"

Now, with a reboot of the property in development at NBC, new series showrunner Javier Grillo-Marxauch has spoken about his plans for the series saying that with »

Xena Won’t Be Straight in NBC Reboot, Writer Says

15 March 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Xena’s relationship with her sidekick Gabrielle won’t be strictly platonic in the reboot of the Lucy Lawless-led series that “The 100” writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach is currently developing for NBC. Grillo-Marxuach, a former “Lost” writer, addressed the issue during a Tumblr Q&A last week, and promised that the implied romantic relationship between the two female characters from the syndicated ’90s series “Xena: Warrior Princess” would be made explicit in his reboot. “There is no reason to bring back ‘Xena’ if it is not there for the purpose of fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown »

Xena Will Be Openly Lesbian in Reboot Series

15 March 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Xena, Warrior Princess, is coming out of the closet.

Javier Grillo-Marxuach, the showrunner guiding the reboot of "Xena," has indicated he intends to make the main character openly lesbian. He wrote a blog post addressing the controversial fate of a lesbian character on the CW drama "The 100," on which he served as writer and co-executive producer:

"I am a very different person with a very different world view than my employer on The 100 – and my work on The 100 was to use my skills to bring that vision to life. Xena will be a very different show made for very different reasons. There is no reason to bring back Xena if it is not there for the purpose of fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown subtextually in first-run syndication in the 1990s."

That relationship was between Xena and her sidekick, Gabrielle. Fans believed the two »

Xena: Lesbian Warrior Princess – have the rules of TV just been rewritten?

15 March 2016 6:08 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s been an open secret for 20 years, but at last everybody’s favourite leather-clad warrior is out and proud. Does it mark a step-change in the way women are portrayed on television?

In news as surprising as reports that Fozzie Bear probably has a Miles Davis poster on his bedroom wall, we can reveal that Xena Warrior Princess is gay. Or at least she will be when the series gets a reboot later this year.

In a recent Tumblr Q&A, the screenwriter and executive producer Javier Grillo-Marxuach, who is working with Rob Tapert and Sam “Spiderman” Raimi to bring Xena back to our screens, wrote: “There is no reason to bring back Xena if it is not there for the purpose of fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown subtextually in first-run syndication in the 1990s.”

Xena reboot producer on recasting and updating the costumes

28 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July, rumours began circulating that NBC was developing a “modern reboot” of Xena: Warrior Princess, with the network subsequently confirming the news the following month, as well as bringing on Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost) as writer-producer in December. Now Grillo-Marxuach has now been speaking to io9 about the plans for the new series, why they’ve decided to recast, and how they plan to update the costumes in this post-Game of Thrones world.

“One big thing is that we are telling a much more serialized story than the show ever tackled,” states Grillo-Marxuach. “So formally we are already treading some very different ground – and while the characters will occupy roughly the same thematic spaces they did in the original, some of their backstories will be changed, and some of their morality will be tweaked so that we can tell a long-arcing story in which every episode leads directly into the next. »

Ash Vs Evil Dead Season 2 Adds Michelle Hurd

24 February 2016 7:01 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It looks like Ash will be facing his past in the upcoming second season of Ash vs Evil Dead on Starz. Lee Majors and Ted Raimi were recently cast as Ash’s father and childhood best friend, respectively, and now Michelle Hurd has joined the cast as a series regular in a role with a strong link to the Deadite slayer.

According to Deadline, Hurd will play Ash’s “high school sweetheart” in the second season of Ash vs Evil Dead. No other details about Hurd’s character—including her name—are known at this time, but her status as series regular means that she’ll likely play a key role in the sophomore season. We’ll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more information is revealed.

No stranger to television, Hurd has appeared in numerous series over the years, including Charmed, The Glades, Witches of East End, »

'Xena' Reboot to Lose the Skimpy Costumes?

23 February 2016 9:54 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Game of Thrones forever changed the fantasy landscape on TV, and now it may be responsible for changing Xena: Warrior Princess in a big way. Can two sexy bikini-clad warriors still survive on the small screen? Or will Xena and her best pal Gabrielle have to trade up their skimpy costumes for heavy armor? That's the dilemma facing Xena: Warrior Princess reboot show runners who aren't quite sure how to move forward with their retooled series.

What can fans expect if Xena: Warrior Princess actually gets the green light at NBC? Xena comic writer Genevieve Valentine and writer-producer Javier Grillo-Marxuach recently participated in a length Q&A session with io9, and they reveal that Xena and Gabrielle may or may not have to wear more clothes. The challenge right now is coming up with costumes that fit in with the current fantasy genre, and what fans have come to expect, »

'Xena' Reboot Will Be More Serialized With Less Skimpy Costumes

23 February 2016 9:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The reboot of "Xena: Warrior Princess" aims to bring the show into the 21st century.

In an interview with io9, the reboot's showrunner, "Lost" alum Javier Grillo-Marxuach, discussed his vision of the show, which might not align with that of fans of the original series.

Here are some choice quotes about the reboot. For instance, it will be more serialized, with fewer one-off "adventures of the week":

One big thing is that we are telling a much more serialized story than the show ever tackled — so formally we are already treading some very different ground — and while the characters will occupy roughly the same thematic spaces they did in the original, some of their backstories will be changed, and some of their morality will be tweaked so that we can tell a long-arcing story in which every episode leads directly into the next ... one of the things I really »
