'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Revival 'Frequently' Discussed

"It's something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with", he said.

Gellar (aka Buffy, herself) celebrated the series' 21st anniversary last weekend by sharing a nostalgia-packed Instagram gallery of her favorite moments.

No show understands better the idea of life after death than "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", so in these heady times of reboots and revivals, it's not exactly a shock to hear that according to Fox TV group chair Gary Newman, bringing back the show is something "we talk about frequently". "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains. "And until Joss decides it's time, it won't happen", he said. Let us know what you think in the comments section.

During an interview with EW, Whedon did acknowledge the possibility of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer revival. Online in 2010) to reluctant acceptance.

"Everything sort of finds its way back somewhere", he said.


Whedon has expressed interest in continuing Buffy's story in the past, and even hinted at how he might do that. Buffy broke new ground so that other shows could build on it. "From now on, we won't just face our fears, we will seek them out". They'd probably play a little younger because they can do that. Will they be erased from existence? I hope the latter, because some of those stories are bonkers. The series starred Sarah Michelle Gellar in the title role alongside Alyson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, David Boreanaz, Seth Green, James Marsters, Emma Caulfield, Michelle Trachtenberg, Amber Benson, and Kristine Sutherland.

Sure ... either way, while I get why the series is still big enough to be considered a worthwhile investment, I would argue that we don't need a reboot of Buffy-not now, anyway. 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.

That's why Fox should leave Buffy as is.

There's no clean answer as to where a "Buffy" revival would air: Given its cult status, it was never a ratings hit during its original run, and the two networks on which it aired - the WB and UPN - no longer exist.
