Go back. Xena became a successful show which has aired in more than countries around the world since The series soared past its predecessor in ratings and in popularity.
For all six years, Xena remained in the top five. In August , NBC announced that it had cancelled its plans for the reboot for the foreseeable future.
Xena: Warrior Princess is set primarily in a fantasy version of ancient Greece sometimes alluding to Roman Greece and was filmed in New Zealand.
The Ancient Greece depicted in the show is largely derived from historical locations and customs, modifying known places and events — battles, trading routes, towns, and so on — to generate an attractive fictional world.
The settlements are presented as a mixture of walled villages and rural hamlets set in a lush green, mountainous landscape.
They are often seen under attack from warlords, and travelling between them involves frequent encounters with small bands of outlaws. All of the main towns are named after historic towns of Ancient Greece, and exhibit some of their essential characteristics — Amphipolis birthplace of Xena  , Potidaea birthplace of Gabrielle  , Athens birthplace of Joxer  , Corinth , Delphi , and Cirra birthplace of Callisto  which was burnt to the ground by Xena's army.
As the show progressed, however, events took place throughout more modern times and places, from Cleopatra 's Alexandria to Julius Caesar 's Rome.
The mythology of the show transitioned from that of the Olympian Gods to include Judeo-Christian elements. Eastern religions were touched on as well, with little regard to accurate time-and-place concerns.
One episode, "The Way", which loosely interpreted elements of Hinduism as major plot points, generated controversy, requiring the producers to add a disclaimer at the head of the episode and a tag explaining the episode's intentions at its end.
Mythological and supernatural locations are presented as equally real, physical places, often accessed through physical portals hidden in the landscape such as lakes and caves.
The inhabitants of such places — gods, mythological beings and forces — are for the most part manifested as human characters who can move at will between their domains and the real world.
Ares , the Greek God of War, for instance, is an egotistical man who wears studded black leather, and Aphrodite , Goddess of Love, is a California valley girl who uses typical valley girl slang and dresses in flowing, translucent pink gowns.
Xena is a historical fantasy set primarily in ancient Greece , although the setting is flexible in both time and location and occasionally features Egyptian ,  Indian , Chinese , Central Asian ,  and Medieval European [ citation needed ] elements.
The flexible fantasy framework of the show accommodates a considerable range of theatrical styles, from high melodrama to slapstick comedy, from whimsical and musical  to all-out action and adventure.
While the show is typically set in ancient times, its themes are essentially modern and it investigates the ideas of taking responsibility for past misdeeds, the value of human life, personal liberty and sacrifice, and friendship.
The show often addresses ethical dilemmas, such as the morality of pacifism ; however, the storylines rarely seek to provide unequivocal solutions.
Xena freely borrows names and themes from various mythologies around the world, primarily the Greek , anachronistically adapting them to suit the demands of the storyline.
Historical figures and events from a number of different historical eras and myths make numerous appearances, and the main characters are often credited with resolving important historical situations.
These include an encounter with Homer before he was famous, in which Gabrielle encourages his storytelling aspirations;  the fall of Troy ;  and the capture of Caesar by pirates, with Xena cast as the pirate leader.
Competing religions are treated as compatible and co-existent in a henotheistic world, allowing the Greek Pantheon to live side by side with the Norse Gods , Indian Deities , the "God of Love" and others.
Each god, or set of gods, controls a different part of the world, and in the show survives only while people believe in it. In seasons four and five, the Greek people gradually transfer their faith from the Greek Gods to the "God of Love" over a period of about 25 years, and as their power fades, the Greek Gods are almost all killed off in a climactic battle.
This quirky mix of timelines and the amalgamation of historical and mythological elements fueled the rise of the show to cult status during the s and early s.
It was one of the first shows to tap into its Internet following, allowing fans from all over the world to discuss and suggest things related to the show.
The Xena fandom is still an active community today. The first choice for Xena was the British actress Vanessa Angel ,  but an illness prevented her from travelling, and the role was offered to four other actresses before the relatively unknown Lawless.
Sunny Doench was cast as Gabrielle, but she did not want to leave her boyfriend in the United States, so O'Connor, who had appeared in Hercules in another role, was chosen.
The show features a wide assortment of recurring characters, many of them portrayed by New Zealand actors. Ted Raimi became a core member of the cast from the second season as Joxer.
Marton Csokas portrayed both Borias and Krafstar. Composer Joseph LoDuca wrote the theme music and incidental music , and co-wrote the lyrics for the songs in " The Bitter Suite.
The original "Kaval sviri" can be heard where Xena races into battle in the Hercules episode " Unchained Heart. Most of the series' music was made available on six soundtrack albums.
The series follows Xena and her traveling companion Gabrielle. Xena is on a quest to redeem herself for her dark past by using her formidable fighting skills to help people.
In Hercules , during her two first episodes, Xena was a villain and a powerful warlord, but in her third appearance she joins Hercules to defeat the warlord Darphus, who had taken her army.
During her own series, Xena spends almost every episode on a different mission, always trying to do the right thing, fighting for what she refers to as the "greater good".
Gabrielle is Xena's best friend, soulmate and also her greatest ally. She is introduced in the first episode, first as a big fan of Xena and her history,  but soon becomes a notable character in her own right.
As the show progresses she undergoes significant changes in costume and style, evolving from a simple farm girl to a talented bard , and eventually to a formidable warrior.
She is initiated into a tribe of Amazons ,  learns to fight with a staff , and is trained by Xena. In the first season, Xena and Gabrielle meet Joxer ,  a comic man who styles himself "Joxer the Magnificent", and later "Joxer the Mighty.
Eventually, he becomes a close friend to Xena and Gabrielle. When Callisto was a child, her home village of Cirra was burned nearly to the ground by Xena, killing her family.
She displays a bizarre brand of sadistic , gleeful, shrieking cruelty towards Xena and her associates. Hercules himself reappears alongside Iolaus - who becomes interested in Gabrielle - when Xena seeks to free Prometheus from Hera.
Ares - suave, charming, witty, yet ruthless and amoral - often represents, especially in the early seasons, the seductive power of war and the dark side.
He repeatedly attempts to lure Xena away from her quest for redemption, and tries to win her over as his Warrior Queen.
Much of his relationship with Xena remains ambiguous , including whether he is at least partly redeemed by his love for Xena, and to what extent Xena reciprocates his feelings.
He says several times that he "has a thing" for Xena, and he pursues her sexually and romantically. This seems to prevent him killing her, even when pitted against her in deadly combat.
Other major antagonists of the show include Caesar and Alti , a Roman official and shamaness respectively. Caesar's first appearance was in the second-season episode "Destiny.
When threatened by Xena he tells her " I know what I'm fated to do with my life. This ultimately leads to her capture and crucifixion at his hands,  and he orders his men to break her legs - an extremely painful memory which is often revisited during the series.
Caesar's betrayal fills her with rage, and is the catalyst for her transition from pirate to warlord. Alti is an evil shamaness from the Northern Amazon tribes of Siberia , who had been driven out of her tribe because of her hunger for power.
She is one of the most influential people encountered by Xena in her dark days, and possesses a wealth of spiritual powers, including travelling to the spiritual realm.
Alti is probably best known for her trademark stare, which brings up pain and suffering from the target's life and unleashes the torment once again in the form of both pain and physical symptoms.
When she stares at Xena, Xena often feels the pain of her legs being broken,  her back being snapped,  and a crippling barrage of attacks from her worst enemies.
As Alti grows in power during the series, she can also conjure up pain and suffering from a person's future, and from their future lives. This power backfires early in Season 4, when she shows Xena a vision from her future, of her and Gabrielle being crucified on Mount Amarro.
Over the course of the series, viewers were also introduced to family members of both Xena and Gabrielle, but most notably featured their children.
Xena gave her first child, a son named Solan , to a group of centaurs after the death of his father, Borias , who was killed in combat against a warrior in Xena's employ.
Solan never knew that Xena was his mother, however knowing Xena for a long time. While aiding Xena and Boudica to defend Britannia against Caesar , Gabrielle comes into contact with an evil cult that tricks her into killing one of its priestesses, Meridian.
Being the daughter of Dahak, she quickly developed supernatural powers, and kills within hours of being born, proving to Xena that there was no chance of saving her.
Hope aged amazingly fast, and, mere months after being drifted down a river by her mother, she appeared to be about 9 years old.
Despite Gabrielle's hopes that she would "be good", Hope killed Xena's son Solan before being poisoned by Gabrielle herself.
During the episode " The Ides of March ", at the end of season 4, Xena and Gabrielle were crucified by the Romans , as Caesar is betrayed and killed by Brutus.
They are later revived by a mystic named Eli with the spiritual aid of Callisto, who by that time had become an angel;  Callisto also engineers a plan to have Xena conceive a daughter after the resurrection, and this child is prophesied to bring about the Twilight of the Olympian gods; this girl was named Eve.
After Eve's cleansing by baptism , Xena is granted the power to kill gods as long as her daughter lives. In a final confrontation, the Twilight comes to pass when Xena kills most of the gods on Olympus to save her daughter, and is herself saved by Ares when he gives up his immortality to heal the badly injured and dying Eve and Gabrielle.
The vast majority of locations in the series are fictional. However, a few locations in the plot are centered on real towns of Ancient Greece, including:.
Xena — the main character of the show — was born in the city of Amphipolis in northern Greece. Xena and her comrade in arms, Gabrielle, made frequent trips there over the course of the series and it was referenced often.
Xena described Amphipolis as "full of life", although several times it was full of death: for instance, the city became a breeding ground for demons after Xena and Gabrielle returned from their twenty-five year sleep.
Mephistopheles , the King of Hell, had captured the soul of Xena's mother Cyrene and imprisoned her in hell. In the backstory of the show, ten years ago Xena had set out to become a warrior, to protect Amphipolis from attacks by a warlord called Cortese.
This was the journey that turned her into an outstandingly fierce fighter with an evil reputation. When she was inspired to fight for good, she returned to Amphipolis, seeking a reunion with her mother.
She met Gabrielle, in Potidaea, on the way. In a fictionalized conversation between Julius Caesar and Xena in the "Destiny" episode in Season 2 , Xena tells him Stageira "is the ancient enemy of my home village, Amphipolis.
Gabrielle was born in Potidaea in Chalkidiki , Greece, which features many times as a rural village, which should have been portrayed as a rural fishing village.
Joxer was brought up in the city of Athens , capital of Greece, and it is often mentioned in passing.
Xena and Gabrielle rarely pass through it, but it was the main setting for the clip show "Athens City Academy of the Performing Bards", and was nearly visited in "One Against an Army" and "Blind Faith".
Callisto is from Cirra in Phocis , central Greece. Xena's army torched the village when Callisto was a child, causing the death of most of her family.
Xena and Gabrielle only visit Cirra once, although it is mentioned rather often. To remain in keeping with the ancient world, and to avoid using modern names, the script often removed the last letter of a country's name, changing China to Chin, and Japan to Jappa.
There have been numerous Xena spin-offs into various media including films, books, comics and video games. The movie plot involves Hercules' mother being kidnapped by Zeus and the release of the Titans.
Xena and Gabrielle have supporting roles in the movie. Since the end of the series rumors have circulated that a feature-length movie was in the works.
In screenwriter Katherine Fugate was approached for the project, and was quoted saying that she expects the start of production to be three to five years away, which suggested a release sometime between and In twenty years or ten years, in some amount of years, like McGyver , like Charlie's Angels , it [could] happen like that [with other actresses].
Following the continued online popularity of the show, a global campaign to directly bombard Universal Pictures with requests for a Xena movie was launched in April Over the space of only a few days, hundreds of thousands of messages were sent showing support for the production of a Xena film starring the original cast.
After receiving nods of acknowledgement from Universal Studios offices in Australia, Finland and Spain, the efforts of the campaign were rewarded in May when Lucy Lawless stated on her Twitter account that she had been contacted by a " chap who wants to re-invigorate the Xena brand " while warning fans that " there's a lot of red tape around XWP so don't get your knickers in a twist.
It may come back in a different form ". For example, in a chapter entitled "Anything can be a weapon- Anything!
There have been a number of novelizations by authors like Martin H. There have been a number of comic adaptations. More recently the license has moved to Dynamite Entertainment.
Universal released seasons 1—6 on VHS in — As of , these releases have now been discontinued. They have subsequently re-released all seasons.
A complete series set was released on May 17, Xena has enjoyed a particular cult status in the lesbian community. Some of the lesbian fan base see Xena and Gabrielle as a couple and have embraced them as role models and lesbian icons.
A subject of much interest and debate among viewers is the question of whether Xena and Gabrielle are lovers. Jokes, innuendo, and other subtle evidence of a romantic relationship between Xena and Gabrielle is referred to as "lesbian subtext" or simply " subtext " by fans.
Many fans felt that the sexual nature of Xena and Gabrielle's relationship was cemented by an interview given by Lucy Lawless to Lesbian News magazine in Lawless stated that after the series finale, where Gabrielle revives Xena with a mouth-to-mouth water transfer filmed to look like a full kiss, she had come to believe that Xena and Gabrielle's relationship was "definitely gay".
Now 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'.
The Xena fandom also popularized the term Altfic from "alternative fiction" to refer to same-sex romantic fan fiction. Not at first, because they would put boning in the corset.
It would cover up those little floating ribs that are so important for breathing, so I'd feel like I was having panic attacks.
But it just became a second skin after a while. It was very functional, once I got over the modesty factor. I admit to being a little bit embarrassed the first couple weeks because I'd never worn anything so short.
Uberfic is a variety of fan fiction in which the characters live in an alternate universe. The characters and events are true to the original canon but usually in a different time period, often as the ancestors , descendants or reincarnations of canon characters.
The term originated in Xena fandom. Uber was employed several times in the series, beginning with the second-season episode "The Xena Scrolls", in which the descendants of Xena, Gabrielle and Joxer meet up at an archeological dig in and unwittingly release Ares from his tomb.
On July 20, , it was reported that NBC was developing a Xena reboot series, with Raimi and Tapert returning as executive producers, with the show's debut sometime in Insiders also requested that Lawless return to the series as Xena, as well as take up a role in the show's production.
In a post on Tumblr Grillo-Marxuach made the statement that they will be "fully exploring a relationship that could only be shown subtextually in first-run syndication in the s,"  which several websites such as The Guardian  and Newsweek  have taken it to mean "Xena will be an out and proud lesbian.
I would prefer people be surprised by the story. On August 21, , NBC announced that it had cancelled its plans for the reboot. NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said, "I'd never say never on that one because it's such a beloved title but the current incarnation of it is dead.
