Fox wants Joss Whedon to revive 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'

We can only imagine where Buffy would pick up 20 years We can only imagine where Buffy would pick up 20 years

Newman went on to say that a Buffy reboot "is something that we talk about frequently", adding that Joss Whedon is "one of the greatest creators" that the network has ever worked with.

While Fox may be keen to push forward with a return to Sunnydale, Newman's words neither confirm nor deny Whedon is actively seeking more work with Buffy outside the comic book continuations.

Newman, while saying that revivals obviously have a bigger initial draw than original programming, said Buffy was always at the top of the stack.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is perhaps a universe even more closely tied to Joss Whedon's image than the short-lived Firefly, if only because its run was so much longer and its legacy that much more intense.

Despite the network's recent revivals of "The X-Files", "24" and "Prison Break" - along with the pilot "Greatest American Hero," in development for ABC - Newman said that such efforts "aren't actually a focus" for the studio. With the door slightly open, fans do have a reason to hope someone could talk him into revisiting the show. When Entertainment Weekly interviewed Whedon and the cast for the show's 20th anniversary past year, he explained that he's more interested in moving forward.

"But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. But yeah, you'd see somebody going through their life at a different stage". Buffy the Vampire Slayer took what could have been a gimmick ("high school is hell") and turned it into one of the best TV shows in history. The entire cast is still alive and they could reunite to parent a new generation of slayers.

However, star Sarah Michelle Gellar has stated on multiple occasions that she wouldn't return for a revamp (excuse the pun).

"I am not sure how that translates into adulthood, although I am sure it could".

Nevertheless, FOX isn't ready to completely abandon the idea of a revival. However, despite my massive love for Buffy, it's probably the last show we need to reboot right now.

So we'll just sit back and wait, as patiently as possible, for the reboot confirmation that seems all but destined to happen.
