In a recent interview, Lucy Lawless dished about resurrecting Xena. Lawless said, “In my dreams it would be that Renee [O'Connor, who played Gabrielle] and I, and Ted [Raimi], who played Joxer, would come back and basically stick Xena’s head back on her and go on a quest. At the end you introduce this new Warrior Princess, hand it over and let them run with it. So we could put the family back together, give the fans what they want, reinvigorate the brand and hand it on to a new generation.” Maybe Dr. Callie Torres can assist in the surgery.
