‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Reboot Is Coming – And It’s Already Getting Mixed Reactions
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, one of the most iconic television series from the 90s, is the next show coming back as a reboot.
Fox 21 TV Studios confirmed that Joss Whedon’s supernatural drama will be coming back to the small screen. Whedon is signed on to executive produce, along with the originals’ executive producers Gail Berman, Fran Kazui and Kaz Kazui. Monica Owusu- Breen, the creator of Midnight, Texas, has been signed on as the writer, executive producer and showrunner of the reboot.
The show will be pitched to streaming sites and cable networks this summer. The producers have the intentions of making the new show with a more diverse cast, including a African-American lead. “Like our world, it will be richly diverse, and like the original, some aspects of the series could be seen as metaphors for issues facing us all today,” the producers said in a statement.
While the original was adored by many, it’s unclear if the reboot will have the same kind of reception as it already has some critics on Twitter.
Please don’t reboot Buffy. What’s the point? It’s lazy. Why not continue the universe’s story? There’s so much to build up off from. People who like Buffy won’t want to watch a reboot, and people who didnt like it to begin with won’t bother. Genuinely upset.

I do not care for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot unless it’s about another Slayer!
The original series was perfect, they don’t need to re do it!!!!
Can we get over this reboot era, I’m BORED of it!

We already had it and it was great
Why not just follow a brand new slayer and keep the setting
Why not make something new
We’re running out of boots

Since there is no script yet, it’s not too late for the reboot to change its course. Fans will have to wait until after summer to see what the new show will entail.
