Buffy the Vampire Slayer revival is 'frequently' discussed, says Fox head

Buffy the Vampire Slayer revival is 'frequently' discussed, says Fox head

Whedon has expressed interest in continuing Buffy's story in the past, and even hinted at how he might do that.

Prospects are looking brighter for the return of beloved teen series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" - unless creator Joss Whedon decides otherwise. The original series ran for seven seasons on the WB and later UPN.

"Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with", he said. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains.

On the possibility of a Buffy revival: "I think if you look in our library, "Buffy" is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back".

"Reboots aren't actually a focus for us". While Newman didn't confirm a reboot is coming or even in the beginning planning stages, it's clear that it would have a home if Whedon chose to step back in to the world of Sunnydale. You don't want that feeling that you should have left before the encore. Since Buffy Summers enabled all potential slayers with slayer powers at the end of the show's run, a reboot is definitely possible.




Either direction seems fraught with peril, unfortunately, and ultimately not as interesting as letting Whedon, still one of TV's most iconic showrunners, develop a fresh new idea.

Gellar (aka Buffy, herself) celebrated the series' 21st anniversary last weekend by sharing a nostalgia-packed Instagram gallery of her favorite moments. It's still inspiring to rewatch Buffy today and see how far ahead of the curve it was for complex, strong female characters and emotionally-driven storytelling.

'90s series are more popular than ever as Full House and Will & Grace are revived and back on TV screens while the Charmed reboot is slated to start filming soon. "She taught me it wasn't about being ideal; it was about trying the hardest to be the best you you can be". And I love that it can live in comic form and graphic novels. She had to train and work hard at her craft.

And really, do we need more "Buffy"?

Whedon may not be ready to bring Buffy the Vampire Slayer back, but we can still cross our fingers, right?
