'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' will be returning to television soon

A TV reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is currently in process with the original series creator Joss Whedon onboard to executive produce with writer Monica Owusu-Breen, reported Variety.

The rebooted show will see a African-American actor take over the lead role, which was played in the series by Sarah Michelle Gellar. Gail Berman, Joe Earley, Fran Kazui and Kaz Kazui will also executive produce.


No network is currently attached to the series, but it will no doubt stir up a bidding war among various networks and streaming services when it is taken to market.

Buffy was a feminist challenge to gender hierarch

Breen’s previous work includes Agents of SHIELD, which is executive produced by Whedon. She also developed Midnight, Texas at NBC, but departed the show after the first season. She has also written and produced shows like Charmed, Alias, Brothers & Sisters and Fringe.


The original Buffy the Vampire Slayer series was based on the 1992 film of the same name, which starred Kristy Swanson as Buffy. The show ran for seven seasons and is frequently cited as one of the best shows ever made.
