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

"And until Joss decides it's time, it won't happen".

Buffy The Vampire Slayer "is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back", Fox Chairman and CEO Gary Newman said this morning at the INTV conference in Jerusalem.

According to a March 13 report by Deadline, Newman opened up about the possibility of bringing Buffy The Vampire Slayer back to television. Fox seems aware of this, with Newman confirming they wouldn't move forward without Joss Whedon.

Is a "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" reboot coming? It's something we talk about frequently. During its seven-season run, the drama-comedy-supernatural mishmash created by Joss Whedon represented a lot of storytelling highs, while behind the scenes, it launched the careers of a number of great writers, including "UnREAL" co-creator Marti Noxon, "Once Upon a Time" executive producer Jane Espenson, "The Martian" screenwriter Drew Goddard, and many others. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", he went on to say.

With The X-Files, Prison Break, and 24 all getting reboots, fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer now have a glimmer of hope.

The story of Buffy Summers continues to live on, however. For many growing up, Buffy was an example of how you could combine femininity and strength. It's not new, and numerous ways that Buffy Summers was written, that were progressive then, are not always progressive now.

McWhorter also allegedly admitted the men threw a PVC pipe bomb through the window of the clinic, but the device failed to go off. Minnesota has the largest Somali community in the United States , according to the most recent census estimates.

Of course, if Buffy The Vampire Slayer were to return to TV, it would likely be without original cast members Sarah Michell Gellar, David Boreanz, Alyson Hanningan, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, Seth Green, James Marsters, and Nicholas Brendon.

Newman acknowledged this fact when talking about another reboot/revival Fox has in the works: Greatest American Hero, a show that is being rebooted with New Girl star Hannah Simone, 30-year-old Indian-American woman, in the lead role. So many shows have used Buffy The Vampire Slayer as a jumping off point at this point that a reboot would have to do something decidedly different to adapt itself to where the cultural conversation now lies. The fanbase for Buffy exists as strongly as ever in terms of participating in discourse.
