A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot Will Happen Under One Condition

A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot Will Happen Under One Condition

Speaking at the INTV conference in Jerusalem, Newman stopped short of confirming that Buffy was returning to TV screens soon, joking that if he did that he wouldn't be able "to get out of the building alive".

"[Buffy] is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back". Since Buffy Summers enabled all potential slayers with slayer powers at the end of the show's run, a reboot is definitely possible.

"Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with", he said.

As Newman said, Fox has brought back a number of its older properties lately, including "The X-Files", "24" and "Prison Break". "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains.

This is interesting insight into the origin of a TV reboot, which, at least at Fox, seems to stem from the creator more than an executive's insight about what might work in today's media climate (although that second factor is surely also taken into account).

Prospects are looking brighter for the return of beloved teen series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" - unless creator Joss Whedon decides otherwise. However, the network has built up a reputation for bringing back their successful series.

If Buffy did make a comeback, it wouldn't be the only classic Fox show to do so. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. "From now on, we won't just face our fears, we will seek them out".

Buffy The Vampire Slayer starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, David Boreanaz, Alyson Hannigan, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, Seth Green and James Marsters.

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.

If a revival does happen, it does call into question what happens to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics, which continued the show's story after the season 7 finale.

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.
