The Low Down “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” Is Returning, But It’s Not What You Think Published 6 months ago on Aug 10, 2018 By Michael Evans Reboots and remakes are on the rise in the entertainment industry. Popular television series jumped on the “reboot” train— Full House, Gilmore Girls, Roseanne, Charmed, Dynasty, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Murphy Brown, and many more. Last week, it was reported that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is being rebooted as a new series. What should we expect? Everything To Know About Buffy The Vampire Slayer The original Buffy the Vampire Slayer series ran from 1996 to 2003. Sarah Michelle Gellar starred as Buffy, a vampire slayer who was born into a long line of young women who are chosen to seek out and destroy vampires, demons, and other dark forces. Buffy’s supportive friends added more fun elements to the series. The Slayer’s wild adventures captured the hearts of many fans, dubbing themselves as members of the “Buffyverse.” 20th Century Fox via Polygon With the recent announcement that the beloved supernatural series was getting a reboot, fans immediately began asking what Buffy has been up to since we last saw her in 2003. Unfortunately, fans aren’t going to get what they want. Introducing A New Leader Shortly after the announcement, it was confirmed that the show’s original creator, Joss Whedon, wouldn’t be returning to create the reboot. Instead, he passed the baton to Monica Owusu-Breen, best known for her work on Alias, Charmed, Lost and Fringe. Fans were concerned the new writer and creator would affect the reboot’s authenticity. They were later disappointed when Owusu-Breen confirmed she’s taking the reboot in an entirely new direction. Nerds of Prey Podcast “I watched Buffy Summers grow up, find love, kill that love. I watched her fight, struggle, and slay. There is only one Buffy,” Owusu-Breen shared on Twitter. “They [the characters] can’t be replaced. Joss Whedon’s brilliant and beautiful series can’t be replicated. I wouldn’t try.” Fans were now worried. Going In A New Direction Owusu-Breen continued her statement, “But here we are, twenty years later…and the world seems a lot scarier. So maybe, it could be time to meet a new Slayer.” Hollywood Reporter This statement confirms that the reboot will focus on a new Slayer. Are you excited? Will you be watching? Only time will tell how successful this reboot will be with a new generation of viewers. UP NEXT If Ratings Don’t Matter, Why Did Netflix Cancel These Popul...
