Cult TV favourite Buffy The Vampire Slayer is being remade - more than 20 years after the first episode. Owusu-Breen is set to write/showrun the new series if it gets off the ground. In fact, we really don't know much about this new Buffy the Vampire Slayer series at the moment, and from how it sounds, it is still quite a way off and a lot can change in that time. Now, though, Whedon is involved in a new effort to reboot the idea as a TV series again, with an African-American Slayer and Midnight, Texas developer Monica Owusu-Breen as showrunner.
"I already have to deal with this JOKE of a reboot for Charmed, now you want to mess with Buffy?!".
No script, director, or casting has been confirmed at this time.
No network has yet been attached to the new version of the series, which is still early on in its development. Buffy the Vampire Slayer originally ran on The WB for five years before moving to UPN for two. The story later continued in comic book form once the series ended. At least the intention to update the show with a more inclusive, diverse cast is in keeping with the show's original progressive spirit.
The rebooted series also marks the latest television project Whedon has lined up in the past few months. The writer/director wouldn't rule the idea out, but he revealed that he had "fear" over the idea. Seth Green, who played werewolf Oz and left during the show's run, would make several TV and film appearances becoming a staple in the animated series Family Guy and creating the popular Robot Chicken. There's a lot to live up to, but at least Whedon is on board to give his blessing.
