FOX keen on bringing back Buffy the Vampire Slayer

At a conference in Jerusalem, FOX TV group chair Gary Newman said, "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it". "Most times when we brought things back, it started with the creator coming in to us and saying, 'I've got another story I want to tell, '" Newman explained.

Watch our exclusive People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN) special, EW Reunites: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, here or download the free app on your favorite device. Joss Whedon is one of the greatest creators we've ever worked for. But even though Sunndydale was swallowed into the Hellmouth itself, Fox's powers that be are interested in dusting off their stakes and taking another stab at bringing Buffy back at some point in the future - Whedon willing, of course. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it".

Newman didn't specify a reboot or a revival, but clarified that he wasn't announcing anything official. 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. "Buffy Speak" has been adopted by multiple shows, and having complex but flawed female heroines, with a touch of glam, is more the norm.

Whedon may not be ready to bring Buffy the Vampire Slayer back, but we can still cross our fingers, right?

Here's how Brent Celek can be valuable to your team in 2018
And as the Eagles aim to situate themselves as perennial contenders, they become more appealing to veterans like Ngata. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport , Celek was due to count for $ 5 million against Philadelphia's 2018 salary cap.

Sure ... either way, while I get why the series is still big enough to be considered a worthwhile investment, I would argue that we don't need a reboot of Buffy-not now, anyway. We have all learned a lot from Buffy, and the best part is, that never ends. There are several Buffy the Vampire Slayer podcasts like "Buffering" or "Buffy Talk". Buffy broke new ground so that other shows could build on it.

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

If a revival does happen, it does call into question what happens to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics, which continued the show's story after the season 7 finale. If we did it with these guys, they'd be the age they basically are. The fanbase for Buffy exists as strongly as ever in terms of participating in discourse.
