Fox Boss Addresses a Possible 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Revival

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Chosen

I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer. "People are aware of the show, you don't' have to build awareness".

Hear that Joss? If the apocalypse comes and you want to return to Buffy, beep Fox. It's something we talk about frequently.

"It's something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with". "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it".

Deadline is reporting that Fox Chairman and CEO Gary Newman is definitely down for a reboot of the vampire/slayer hit show. Fox has done it with The X-Files and is developing another new 24. 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. It wouldn't be like, 'I can't believe we're still in high school! Since the series wrapped with the highly-praised "Chosen", the world of Buffy has lived on in comics, with Whedon now returning for Season 12. Buffy had no problem wearing heels or cute dresses to battle.

Buffy is iconic, and its influence remains important, but I feel the same about a Buffy reboot as I felt about the Gilmore Girls reboot: sometimes, good things from the past should stay in the past.

Ok Buffy fanatics, take a deep breath. No, but most, if not all of them, try to use some elements of the Buffy model.

"Most times when we brought things back, it started with the creator coming in to us and saying I've got another story I want to tell", Newman continued. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up.

A revival of Whedon's landmark '90s supernatural series has been bandied about since the show went off the air in 2003. The show may have ended, but the storyline rages on in a series of comic books that continue the adventures of the Scooby Gang. That's what fandom is for. The fanbase for Buffy exists as strongly as ever in terms of participating in discourse. The fandom is creating more Buffy all the time, and that's great!
