The world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is returning with a new series of books. Is a revival of the actual series possible though? The cast had mixed reactions to that question recently.
Entertainment Weekly shared their reactions to the question. James Marsters would be willing if Joss Whedon was behind it. Charisma Carpenter spoke about the fans. She knows they would welcome a revival.
However, Sarah Michelle Gellar was not in favor of a revival. She said the following:
“At a certain point, when things are magical, you don’t want to go back and Godfather III it—right? I’m sure the fans are incredibly disappointed to hear that answer, but I think they’d be more disappointed if we created something and it didn’t live up to the expectation because the expectation is so incredibly high. And I love that it can live in comic form and graphic novels. There are so many worlds it can live in.”
Joss Whedon is not against a Buffy revival though. He said the following:
“Everything sort of finds its way back somewhere. I’ve been trying deliberately to move forward and do something a little bit different. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. If we did it with these guys, they’d be the age they basically are. They’d probably play a little younger because they can do that. But yeah, you’d see somebody going through their life at a different stage. It wouldn’t be like, ‘I can’t believe we’re still in high school! I wear Depends!’”
