FOX Chairman Says There is Talk About Buffy Revival 'Frequently'”

"When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it". The Fox CEO stated that reboots have not been a focus for the network, despite reviving The X-Files and Prison Break, along with rebooting the 24 franchise, but he did confess that Buffy is "probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back". "And until Joss decides it's time, it won't happen".

Over 20 years later, "Buffy" still means a lot to its fans, and the good news for those who might be nervous about the possibility of a revival happening is that according to Newman, it would depend entirely on Whedon coming to 20th Century Fox with an idea.

While Newman didn't confirm a reboot is coming or even in the beginning planning stages, it's clear that it would have a home if Whedon chose to step back in to the world of Sunnydale. Since Buffy Summers enabled all potential slayers with slayer powers at the end of the show's run, a reboot is definitely possible.

"It's something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with", Newman said at the INTV Conference in Israel (h/t Variety). But it sounds like Fox is ready to go as soon as Whedon gives the nod. It is fun to remember that, technically, Buffy is now a Disney princess in the aftermath of the Fox/Disney acquisition, but that means the Fox network wouldn't be the default home for it. Online in 2010) to reluctant acceptance. I've been trying deliberately to move forward and do something a little bit different. "From now on, we won't just face our fears, we will seek them out". The story has continued in the pages of the comics published by Dark Horse since 2007. Will they be erased from existence? I hope the latter, because some of those stories are bonkers.

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.

It was a groundbreaking series that earned a devoted following over its seven seasons - including myself.

Lost Girl, Wynonna Earp, Being Human, Teen Wolf, The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Misfits, Killjoys, The Magicians, and many others have all taken from the Buffy mold.

That's why Fox should leave Buffy as is. There are some things that a revival could improve on - the show's lack of diversity for one - but Buffy the Vampire Slayer left a lasting legacy that can only be tarnished by a revival.
