BELOVED 90s show Buffy The Vampire Slayer is making a TV comeback with a reboot 15 years after the original ended.
Let’s take a look at the new project.
When is Buffy The Vampire Slayer reboot on TV?
Buffy the TV show, which was adapted from the 1992 film, originally ran for seven seasons over eight years, but came to an end in 2003.
While the reboot has been confirmed, with former showrunner Joss Whedon returning as executive producer, there is still no word on when the show will be airing.
There is also no confirmation on what network or platform the new show will be screening on.
Who’s in the new cast?
While very little is know about the new show, it has been confirmed that former lead star Sarah Michelle Gellar will not be returning.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new actress playing Buffy will most likely be African American.
The same reports says the new star will be relatively unknown to TV viewers.
She will follow in the footsteps of Sarah and Kristy Swanson, 48, who played Buffy in the movie.
Aside from Sarah, the original show starred Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, Anthony Head, James Marsters, Emma Caulfield Ford, and David Boreanaz.
What is the new show about?
The new show will again centre on Buffy – the teen vampire slayer who has been bestowed with special powers to battle evil blood suckers.
Whedon, who went onto direct The Avengers movie franchise, previously admitted he was reluctant to bring the show back.
Speaking to The HR in 2017, he explained: “I see a little bit of what I call monkey’s paw in these reboots.

“You bring something back, and even if it’s exactly as good as it was, the experience can’t be.
“You’ve already experienced it, and part of what was great was going through it for the first time.
“You have to meet expectations and adjust it for the climate, which is not easily.”
