Fox Boss Addresses a Possible 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Revival

But there's still one show that fans would love to see come back-Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The series, which recently celebrated its 21st anniversary, aired for five seasons on the WB and two on UPN before signing off for good in 2003. During its seven-season run, the drama-comedy-supernatural mishmash created by Joss Whedon represented a lot of storytelling highs, while behind the scenes, it launched the careers of a number of great writers, including "UnREAL" co-creator Marti Noxon, "Once Upon a Time" executive producer Jane Espenson, "The Martian" screenwriter Drew Goddard, and many others.

Many broadcast networks are in the business of reviving their fan-favorite TV shows from the 1990s and early 2000s, including FOX, which has revivals of The X-Files, 24, Prison Break, and the upcoming Greatest American Hero. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains. The series starred Sarah Michelle Gellar in the title role alongside Alyson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, David Boreanaz, Seth Green, James Marsters, Emma Caulfield, Michelle Trachtenberg, Amber Benson, and Kristine Sutherland.

"Reboots aren't actually a focus for us", Newman continued.

On the possibility of a Buffy revival: "I think if you look in our library, "Buffy" is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back". 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 made a decision to step back in to the world of Sunnydale. When EW reunited the cast to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary in 2017, he seemed to think a revival could work. You don't want that feeling that you should have left before the encore. Buffy Summers: cheerleader, blonde, valley girl turned savior of the universe. As Sarah Michelle Gellar told THR a year ago, the character of Buffy was pretty wonderful. Most of the time it starts with a creator coming in. And I love that it can live in comic form and graphic novels.

And really, do we need more "Buffy"?
