Buffy the Vampire Slayer Reboot Will Happen 'When Joss Decides'

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

When the show ended in 2003, Buffy and her college-aged friends had destroyed their hometown, Sunnydale, and the Hellmouth. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains. 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. According to the folks over at Deadline, Fox Chairman and CEO Gary Newman told members of the press, when discussing the success of recent reboots like X-Files and 24, that "Buffy The Vampire Slayer is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back", and added that "It's something we talk about frequently".

We've written before about why a Buffy short term "event series" revival could actually be a good thing.

Wynonna Earp probably is the best Buffy reboot we could ever get, and it kicks a lot of ass while being even gayer and having more diversity than the original Scooby Gang. While Newman didn't confirm a reboot is coming or even in the beginning planning stages, it's clear that it would have a home if Whedon made a decision to step back in to the world of Sunnydale. "But, you know, AFTER", Whedon told E! You don't want that feeling that you should have left before the encore.

Whedon has expressed interest in continuing Buffy's story in the past, and even hinted at how he might do that. Since Buffy Summers enabled all potential slayers with slayer powers at the end of the show's run, a reboot is definitely possible. It's still inspiring to rewatch Buffy today and see how far ahead of the curve it was for complex, strong female characters and emotionally-driven storytelling. As Sarah Michelle Gellar told THR a year ago, the character of Buffy was pretty fantastic. Seeing her back on the small screen would not only be timely, but contribute to the current television landscape that needs to show more girls as action heroes.

And really, do we need more "Buffy"? But when we first brought it back it was Chris and David and Gillian.
