Buffy the Vampire Slayer Won't Return Until Joss Whedon 'Decides It's Time'

The reason why Joss Whedon created Buffy the Vampire Slayer was in order to play with traditional horror tropes and turn someone who'd normally be a damsel in distress into the heroine.

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. Joss Whedon is one of the greatest creators we've ever worked for. With numerous television shows getting the reboot treatment, including other supernatural hits like Charmed and Roswell, a Buffy reboot would definitely be a welcome addition to any network lineup.

Sarah Michelle Gellar starred as Buffy in the original series, and the story of the Slayer still speaks volumes today. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains.

"Reboots aren't actually a focus for us", Newman continued. "I think if you look in our library, Buffy is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back", he says. It's not clear whether or not a revival or reboot would take the comics into consideration. When EW reunited the cast to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary in 2017, he seemed to think a revival could work.

According to Comicbook, one of the heads of Fox, Gary Newman, is in talks about bringing back our favorite chosen vampire slayer. There was even talk of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie reboot eight years ago. 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. As long as all the original creators and actors are back, consider me intrigued by the possibility at least. "She taught me it wasn't about being flawless; it was about trying the hardest to be the best you you can be". But even though Sunndydale was swallowed into the Hellmouth itself, Fox's powers that be are interested in dusting off their stakes and taking another stab at bringing Buffy back at some point in the future - Whedon willing, of course.
