You'll probably be disappointed by this "Buffy" revival update
The show just celebrated its 20th anniversary and fans are chomping at the bit for a reboot, but it looks like a revival of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is… unlikely. *Cue sobbing*
During a recent roundtable with Entertainment Weekly for the magazine’s Buffy anniversary issue, the cast spoke about whether a series revival was in the cards. While stars like Spike actor James Marsters and show creator Joss Whedon appear to be on board, the slayer herself — Sarah Michelle Gellar — seems to be firmly in the “no revival” camp, and we’re pretty darn heartbroken about it. What’s Buffy without, well, Buffy?
Whedon, on the other hand, said he’s been pursing the idea of a Buffy reboot and thinks that following the characters’ struggles and triumphs through adulthood could be powerful.
All jokes aside, we do think a Buffy revival could be powerful right now. We’d love to see how the gang contends with issues like workplace sexism, anti-LGBTQ lawmaking, and our current political climate.
