Sarah Michelle Gellar Weighs In On If A Buffy Revival Would Work


Since "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" ended its seven-season run in 2003, its influence has only grown. The series led to a line of comics continuing its story, and a number of the show's writers have gone on to work on shows like "Lost," "Once Upon a Time," "Daredevil," "Mad Men" and more. The show's creator, Joss Whedon, even earned overwhelming mainstream success as the writer and director of Marvel's two "Avengers" films. With so many shows (ranging from "Gilmore Girls" and "X-Files" to "Full House") making high profile returns, fans can't help but wonder if "Buffy" will be next.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, "Buffy" star Sarah Michelle Gellar weighed in on whether or not the show would still work with a thirty-something vampire slayer.

"I have always believed that what was so unique about the show was the use of horrors of those formative years," said Gellar. "With high school and college as a backdrop, we were able to address racism, identity, bullying, guilt, death, first love and heartbreak using the demons as metaphors for the demons we all experience. I am not sure how that translates into adulthood, although I am sure it could. The burden of saving the world a lot always weighed heavily on her, so for her sake, I hope she is somewhere on a beautiful beach located far away from any Hellmouth."

Since the end of "Buffy," Gellar has starred in "The Grudge" film franchise as well as the short-lived TV series "Ringer" and "The Crazy Ones." Most recently she gave a voice to the evil Imperial Inquisitor the Seventh Sister on "Star Wars Rebels." Next on her plate is executive producing and starring in the return of another one of her popular properties, "Cruel Intentions."
