A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot? Fox's Gary Newman Says “When Joss Decides It's Time, We'll Do It” – INTV

Whedon had once looked at continuing the story as a movie, but news on a Buffy revival has so far been confined to comics and novels. He's, of course, referring to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the long-running WB-turned-UPN series about a chosen one who fights vampires, demons, forces of darkness, and a loan shark that's literally a shark.

"It's something we talk about frequently, and 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".

Sarah Michelle Gellar starred as Buffy in the original series, and the story of the Slayer still speaks volumes today. During the INTVconference in Jerusalem, he stated that BTVS "is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back", before adding, "It's something we talk about frequently".

But Newman said, "Reboots aren't actually a focus for us". It's not clear whether or not a revival or reboot would take the comics into consideration.

Last year, Whedon spoke about the possibility of a reunion show while celebrating the series' 20th anniversary. You don't want that feeling that you should have left before the encore. Unfortunately, he didn't seem that interested in bringing back his fan-favorite series last spring.

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. "Most of the time it starts with a creator coming in", Newman explained. But after seeing how fantastic and ready to kick ass everyone looked at the Buffy 20th reunion previous year, one can't help but wonder just what a proper Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion would look like. "She taught me it wasn't about being ideal; it was about trying the hardest to be the best you you can be". She had to train and work hard at her craft.

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