Buffy the Vampire Slayer to be rebooted with black lead

Buffy the Vampire Slayer to be rebooted with black lead”

A network has yet to be announced, but Whedon is now working with Monica Owusu-Breen to write the script.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cult favorite supernatural series is officially being revived by 20th Century Fox Television, with the new version to be written by Midnight, Texas creator Monica Owusu-Breen. The show was constantly praised by fans and critics, even hailed as one of the greatest television shows of all time by some, so a reboot, while welcome by many, might not be the best news for fans who adored the original show back when it first aired over 20 years ago. "Like today's world, the new Buffy will be richly diverse, with some aspects of the series, like the flagship, seen as metaphors for issues facing society today", but Whedon will apparently not be involved in the writing or directing process, because. The show is going to be pitched to networks this summer, and while there's no official script quite yet, the reboot is said to be "be contemporary, building on the mythology of the original". Well, that fear looks to have dissipated in the year since that last interview. Whedon, who will write, executive produce, and serve as showrunner for the series, called it "the most ambitious narrative" he's ever created.
