Xena Will Be Openly Gay in the Series Reboot - TVGuide.com

Just weeks after facing controversy from fans of The 100 after audience favorite Lexa's death sparked discussion about lesbian character deaths on TV, writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach confirmed that Xena will be openly gay in his reboot of Xena: Warrior Princess.

In a recent Tumblr post, he wrote, "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 sub-textually in first-run syndication in the 1990s. it will also express my view of the world - which is only further informed by what is happening right now - and is not too difficult to know what that is if you do some digging."

This will be great for anyone who is neither homophobic, nor Xenaphobic.

1. This is pretty awesome/progressive. 2. This 1000% reminds me of the Oblongs version of Xena, which is rife with hilarious puns.
