Joss Whedon Talks Potential “Buffy” Revival; Will It Ever Happen?



In a world where “Full House” came back, anything is possible.

As we told you yesterday, EW just reunited the cast of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” for a 20th anniversary reunion photo shoot that put a huge smile on many faces. Yes, it’s now been 20 years since the beloved series originally premiered, and 14 years since the final episode aired. The series is continuing in the world of print, but will it ever return to TV?

Speaking with EW, creator Joss Whedon didn’t rule anything out:

I’ve been trying deliberately to move forward and do something a little bit different. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. If we did it with these guys, they’d be the age they basically are. They’d probably play a little younger because they can do that. But yeah, you’d see somebody going through their life at a different stage. It wouldn’t be like, ‘I can’t believe we’re still in high school! I wear Depends!’

Most of the main cast seems to be on board with the potential idea of bringing their characters back for another go at it, but Sarah Michelle Gellar answered a big fat “NO” to the question:

I’m sure the fans are incredibly disappointed to hear that answer, but I think they’d be more disappointed if we created something and it didn’t live up to the expectation. And I love that it can live in comic form and graphic novels.

James Marsters explained that he would return, however, while Charisma Carpenter added, “It would just make so many people happy.”

So don’t get your hopes up. But you never know!
