It's Lawless like you've never 'Xena'


Xena-philes are in for a treat tonight.

The Oxygen cable network will air a special "director's cut" version of the Xena: Warrior Princess finale at 8 p.m.

This version of "A Friend in Need," which originally aired June 23, includes 16 extra minutes.

Since Oxygen started airing the series, the network has been swamped with requests for more Xena. When programmers learned about the extra footage, "we knew that we had found what our viewers had been looking for,"says Oxygen's Debby Beece.

Xena airs Mondays through Fridays at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. and weekends at 3 and 11 p.m.

Beyond the Xena series, fans can catch star Lucy Lawless in her X-Files debut on the show's ninth season premiere Nov. 11, airing at 8 p.m. on Channel 4. She plays an enigmatic woman in the first two shows, with the possibility of returning in other episodes
