‘Buffy, the Vampire Slayer’ Reboot in the Works

Potential New Series from Original Creator Joss WHedon

20th Century Fox Television, who produced the original “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer,” is developing a remake from Joss Whedon with an African-American actress in the lead. Based on the 1992 film of the same name, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, originally ran from 1996 to 2003 on The WB and for two additional seasons on UPN through 2003. Spin-off “Angel,” starring David Boreanaz, ran from 1999 to 2004.

No actors have been cast in the series reboot yet. Showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen has signed on to oversee the project and director Joss Whedon, who created the original series, will return to executive produce. 

No specific outlet has committed to the potential remake of “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer” yet.
