FOX Chair Says Buffy the Vampire Slayer Could Get Revival

Gary Newman at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem

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.

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.

Gary Newman, head of the Fox Television Group, said that a revival of "Buffy" is a popular discussion topic at the company. But he did allow, "It's something we talk about frequently".

"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 Jerusalem Tuesday, as reported by Variety.

Newman didn't specify a reboot or a revival, but clarified that he wasn't announcing anything official. Seeing her back on the small screen would not only be timely, but contribute to the current television landscape that needs to show more girls as action heroes.

With The X-Files, Prison Break, and 24 all getting reboots, fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer now have a glimmer of hope. Fox says it's up to Whedon to bring "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" back.

Whedon has expressed interest in continuing Buffy's story in the past, and even hinted at how he might do that.

That being said, we have a ton of heroines like that now, who have played with these dualities of femininity and power. It's not new, and numerous ways that Buffy Summers was written, that were progressive then, are not always progressive now. Same with Spuffy, which ... yeah, that was a mess regardless of whether you ship it or not. Are they all as consistent and well written as Buffy? The best tribute to the original series is to take what it accomplished and work to do it even better, go places the original series couldn't and make the goal of future shows, not to try to take something that people love and most likely not do it justice. Since its conclusion, the series has continued in comic book form, with some of the characters continuing their journey in the Angel spin-off series. The fanbase for Buffy exists as strongly as ever in terms of participating in discourse.

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