ox Wants a Buffy the Vampire Slayer Revival, But Not Without Joss Whedon

Does Buffy Summers have it in her to come back from the dead a third time? Fox thinks so. At the INTV Conference in Jerusalem, Fox boss Gary Newman spoke openly about his desire to bring back Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

“I think if you look in our library, Buffy is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back,” Newman said, according to Variety.

“It’s something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with,” Newman continued. “When Joss decides it’s time, we’ll do it. And until Joss decides it’s time, it won’t happen.”

Fox has brought back 24Prison Break and The X-Files in the latest revival boom. Other recently revived shows include Gilmore GirlsArrested DevelopmentThe ComebackRoseanneWill & Grace and Murphy Brown.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which premiered 21 years ago on The WB and was based on Whedon’s movie of the same name, starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as the titular character, a young woman with special abilities tasked with protecting the world from all sorts of demons and supernatural forces. The show ran for seven years across The WB and UPN and continued as a comic book series both written and sanctioned by Whedon.
