Vampires were all the rage in the ’90s, thanks to the likes of “Interview with the Vampire” and the hit supernatural teen series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” The series follows Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar), a teen vampire hunter who has just moved to the town of Sunnydale. Along with her Watcher, a librarian named Giles (Anthony Head), and her two besties Xander (Nicholas Brendon) and Willow (Alyson Hannigan), Buffy must consistently combat the forces of evil. This includes not only vampires, but also demons, zombies, hyena people, androids, and kaiju-sized snakes, all while traversing the pitfalls of growing up.
Following the show’s epic conclusion in 2003, “Buffy” lived on primarily through video games and a successful comic book run. However, if you were hoping for a revival featuring the original Buffy, Gellar has made it clear that it’s not happening. In a chat with Variety, she addressed the idea of bringing “Buffy” back, stating very plainly: “I am very proud of the show that we created and it doesn’t need to be done. We wrapped that up.” While a “Buffy” revival may not be entirely off the table, one with Gellar back in her former role isn’t likely.
