Fox Says They're Ready For A Buffy The Vampire Slayer Reboot

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Chosen

Perhaps now that Whedon has stepped away from the Batgirl movie and committed to co-writing season 12 of the Buffy comic book, he may be leaning towards bringing the BTVS universe back to the small screen. There's still plenty of shows that FOX could revive, however, and one that the network has thought about is Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but they have one condition.

The series, which recently celebrated its 21st anniversary, aired for five seasons on the WB and two on UPN before signing off for good in 2003.

"It's something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with". It was a great show (even with the loan shark), and one "we talk about frequently" according to Newman. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it".

Of course, if Buffy The Vampire Slayer were to return to TV, it would likely be without original cast members Sarah Michell Gellar, David Boreanz, Alyson Hanningan, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, Seth Green, James Marsters, and Nicholas Brendon.

But Newman said, "Reboots aren't actually a focus for us".

As reported by Variety, "Most times when we brought things back, it started with the creator coming into us and saying I've got another story I want to tell", Newman said. It's not clear whether or not a revival or reboot would take the comics into consideration.

Do you want to see a Sunnydale High class of 1999 20 year reunion next year? Still, it doesn't seem as if Whedon is in any rush to bring Buffy back to TV, telling THR that is may be time to "move on [and] create new things for people to try to reboot". But after seeing how incredible and ready to kick ass everyone looked at the Buffy 20th reunion past year, one can't help but wonder just what a proper Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion would look like.

Buffy was and still is a beacon of girl power - more than just a strong female character but an unapologetic feminist and iconic action hero that appealed to women and girls of all ages.

And really, do we need more "Buffy"?
