Best news: Lucy Lawless not only wants to play Xena again, she’s actively working on it! She tells Den of Geek:

“I’ve been pitching that, actually. The fans really do want that, and I’ve met some people who’ve crowdfunded some things, and I’m just like, ‘Why don’t we just do that?’ It’s still about who owns the rights to Xena. But it would still be cool to do it again with Renée [O’Connor], me, Ted [Raimi], and Bruce. It’d be a fun little gig, but what that is I don’t really know.”
