"And until Joss decides it's time, it won't happen".

If Buffy did make a comeback, it wouldn't be the only classic Fox show to do so. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it". But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. Every day, it feels like there's an announcement that an old show (Murphy Brown!) is getting a reboot, revival, re-imagining, whatever, because there's nothing more powerful than nostalgia. According to Gary Newman, head of the Fox Television Group, a return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is something that's "frequently" discussed but would never happen without the blessing of series creator Joss Whedon. During the INTVconference in Jerusalem, he stated that BTVS "is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back", before adding, "It's something we talk about frequently".

"Reboots aren't actually a focus for us", Newman continued. 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. "You bring something back, and even if it's exactly as good as it was, the experience can't be", he told THR.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer could be making a return to television in the very near future.

The story of Buffy Summers continues to live on, however. Unfortunately, he didn't seem that interested in bringing back his fan-favorite series last spring. There was even talk of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie reboot eight years ago.

Buffy was and still is a beacon of girl power - more than just a strong female character but an unapologetic feminist and iconic action hero that appealed to women and girls of all ages.

'90s series are more popular than ever as Full House and Will & Grace are revived and back on TV screens while the Charmed reboot is slated to start filming soon. "Buffy reminded us that being different was not only OK but really cool - and at a time when most kids are trying to desperately fit in".
