Buffy The Vampire Slayer "most ripe" for revival at Fox

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. "People are aware of the show, you don't' have to build awareness". Fox itself has dabbled into it, having brought back "The X-Files" and developing a new iteration of "24". "It's something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with".

So it comes as little surprise that Fox has looked at bringing back cult favorite "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", he went on to say.

Luckily, Sarah Michelle Gellar seems keen to drag Buffy into adulthood, too, a year ago telling THR: "With high school and college as a backdrop, we were able to address racism, identity, bullying, guilt, death, first love and heartbreak using the demons as metaphors for the demons we all experience. The story of Buffy at her core was about the horrors of adolescence mixing with these horrors of the supernatural, and I'm not sure if that would translate to adulthood very well".

The story of Buffy Summers continues to live on, however.

Jhene Aiko Puts Big Sean Infidelity Rumours To Rest
Allegedly, the rapper was seen cozied up with Nicole Scherzinger (of Pussycat Dolls fame) at an Oscars after-party. Big Sean retweeted the post by Jhene adding clapping emojis for emphasis.

The other cast members chimed in, saying that the issue with Buffy is that numerous characters are immortal, while the actors.are not.

However, Newman noted that reboots are not a focus for them, and that they happen usually because they are approached by the creators themselves. Would you want to see a Buffy the Vampire Slayer revival?

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.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer knows a thing or two about letting things stay six feet under. The fanbase for Buffy exists as strongly as ever in terms of participating in discourse. Joss' inspiration for the series came from a desire for something more than what most thrillers offered - a cliché blonde being killed off while making out with her boyfriend on a secluded road. It's not so that executives can take a product that ended on its own terms and try to make it new again.
