Lucy Lawless & Renee O'Connor Just Had A Xena & Gabrielle Reunion — So Are Those Reboot Rumors True After All?!

| Filed under: Lucy LawlessNostalgia

no title

We just don't know what to think anymore.

First Lucy Lawless hinted that she and Sam Raimi were in the process of making a Xena: The Warrior Princess reboot.

Then she dashed those nostalgic dreams by tweeting that the news was actually just a giant rumor.

And now she's going around hanging out with one of her old castmates, which we can't help but think means she's trying to get the old gang on board!

Lucy and Renee O'Connor played Xena and Gabrielle for all six seasons of the classic fantasy show, and the pair just reunited 15 years after the series finale on Thursday.

We're glad they're still BFFs all these years later!

Do U think this could mean the Xena reboot is a real thing??

NBC Wants To Bring Back Xena: Warrior Princess — But Just How Will Lucy Lawless Be Involved?

| Filed under: TV NewsLucy LawlessNostalgia

We're so on board for this!

It seems as though 2015 is the year of the reboot, and NBC apparently wants in on the trend.

That's because it was announced on Monday that the peacock network is looking to remake the classic fantasy/drama Xena: Warrior Princess for the modern age!

The Hercules spin-off starred Lucy Lawless as the titular hero from 1995-2001, and the reboot is currently in very early stages of development as executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi look for a writer to attach to the project.

NBC apparently wants Lucy to be involved with the series both on camera and behind the scenes, which shouldn't be too hard seeing as she's been part of the Universal family recently with her recurring role on Parks and Recreation.

The one downside? The studio wants its leading lady to be a mix of Lucy's Xena with Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen — so basically they just want a serialized Hunger Games… but still, we'll take what we can get!

However, Lucy herself has commented on the news suggesting that the show is only a rumor, but we still have faith:

There isn't too much other info about the reboot just yet — but this is definitely one Hollywood remake we can totally get behind!

Do U think this news is just too good to be true??

wonder womans outfit looks super familiar

They say when one copies something - it's a compliment!

We wonder if Lucy Lawless is feeling that way these days!

Yesterday, we reported how Zack Synder made the Comic-Con crowd go crazy when he premiered Wonder Woman's outfit for the new Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice movie.

And subsequently the director made the world go nuts when he tweeted it out for everyone to see!

But we definitely noticed the similarities that the costume, worn by actress Gal Gadot, has with the one that Lucy Lawless wore on Xena: Warrior Princess! And we weren't the only ones!

Here are some tweets slash reactions after the costume was revealed
