Xena and Gabrielle Confirmed to Be ‘In Lesbians’ With Each Other in ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’ Reboot

If you’ve ever seen an episode of Xena: Warrior Princess and didn’t notice the gay undertones, you’re probably a Mormon mother of 86 locked in a Utah basement. People have been debating the undertones for like 20 years, though it’s not really a debate.

That s**t gay.

Even Lucy Lawless said that she thought Xena was gay. However, there will be no speculation in the upcoming reboot. Javier Grillo-Marxauch confirmed during a Tumblr Q&A that Xena and Gabrielle are gonna be 100% in lesbians with each other.

“I am a very different person with a very different world view than my employer on the 100 — and my work on the 100 was to use my skills to bring that vision to life. 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 subtextually 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.”
