'Buffy' revival a possibility, but only with creator Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon is one of the greatest creators we've ever worked for. 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. Although Joss Whedon has written and overseen up to four new "seasons" of Buffy in the pages of Dark Horse Comics (with a 12th season coming out soon), all of these are set somewhere in the recent past, meaning the characters have only aged slightly. "I have always believed that the world is changed by your example, not by your opinion".

Two decades on from when Sarah Michelle Gellar first kicked some undead ass on our screens, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is still just as popular as ever, with a large and loyal fanbase whose love for Joss Whedon's supernatural adventure/high school drama series has never faded.

But there are too many ways this could go wrong. Same with Spuffy, which ... yeah, that was a mess regardless of whether you ship it or not.

'I hope it feels like a good, proper goodbye, because they deserve it, ' says the actress.

Ok Buffy fanatics, take a deep breath. "Buffy Speak" has been adopted by multiple shows, and having complex but flawed female heroines, with a touch of glam, is more the norm. "I think if you look in our library, Buffy is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back", Newman said, but admitted that he "wouldn't get out of the building alive" if it was announced.

Many broadcast networks are in the business of reviving their fan-favorite TV shows from the 1990s and early 2000s, including FOX, which has revivals of The X-Files, 24, Prison Break, and the upcoming Greatest American Hero. I'm sure the fans are incredibly disappointed to hear that answer, but I think they'd be more disappointed if we created something and it didn't live up to the expectation because the expectation is so incredibly high. There are several Buffy the Vampire Slayer podcasts like "Buffering" or "Buffy Talk". That's what fandom is for.
