New Zealand is an island nation in the South Pacific. It was the site where filming of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess took place.

When Kevin Sorbo failed to show up in New Zealand following a California earthquake, the locals on Hercules turned on producer Eric Gruendemann. (HTLJ: "Yes, Virginia, There is a Hercules")

Background informationEdit

New Zealand is the nation where all scenes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Young Hercules were shot. Most of the cast for the series' were New Zealand natives, including stars Michael Hurst, Lucy Lawless, and Dean O'Gorman. They often adopted American accents to play the Greek characters.

New Zealand is also the tongue-in-cheek "third world country" referenced as a potential site for filming Xena: Warrior Princess in "The Xena Scrolls" by Ted.
