Fox Wants To Revive 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' With Joss Whedon

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.

If Buffy did make a comeback, it wouldn't be the only classic Fox show to do so. However, it's definitely encouraging to hear that Fox isn't moving forward on any given Buffy project without his approval - unlike a few years ago, when Fox talked about making a Whedon-less pitch for a new Buffy movie, which was met with scathing criticism from the cast and crew. "And until Joss decides it's time, it won't happen".

Fox TV group chair Gary Newman says that the group has been eyeing Buffy the Vampire Slayer as its next potential reboot, according to Variety.

In fact, teen thriller/drama Buffy The Vampire Slayer may be one of the most discussed revival options of all.

He said that while Fox has brought back some favorite shows, it's not what the network focuses on.

Newman didn't specify a reboot or a revival, but clarified that he wasn't announcing anything official. "Most of the time it starts with a creator coming in", Newman explained.

The network already has several revivals airing now, including another '90s cult hit, The X-Files, which has not been doing well ratings-wise.

So we'll just sit back and wait, as patiently as possible, for the reboot confirmation that seems all but destined to happen. "The 24 franchise... we'll always want it".

"But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up". Do you remember the brief Buffy stints of these soon-to-be-famous actors? It wouldn't be like, 'I can't believe we're still in high school! That picture of the two sword fighting looks way less intense than the sword fight that went down between Buffy and Angelus in the series, and also much less sad!

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.

The show may have ended in 2003, but since then, it has continued on in comic book form. If Whedon decides Buffy has more tales to tell, that'll be everything fans want. "But, you know, AFTER", Whedon told E!
