'Buffy' Reboot Reports Get Mixed Reaction From Fans Of Original Show

21 July, 2018, 18:13 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

This show will serve as a reunion for Owusu-Breen and Whedon, who previously worked together on Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. However, Monica Owusu-Breen will be showrunner, writer, and also an executive producer.

Running from 1997 to 2003, Buffy The Vampire Slayer was the kind of show that was somehow both a cult favourite and a huge commercial success, with Sarah Michelle Gellar slaying vampires (as well as dozens of other kinds of monstrosities) before calling it a day.

The Hollywood Reporter has said that no director or casting decisions have been made yet, pointing out that, as in the original "Buffy", aspects of the show's mythology are expected to serve as metaphors for issues in contemporary society. The reboot will be developed by Fox 21 TV Studios, which plans to pitch it to cable and streaming networks.

Whedon appeared reluctant a year ago to resurrect the series. This week, HBO announced a straight-to-series order for The Nevers, which will follow a gang of Victorian women with unusual abilities bent on saving the world.

After the Celtics lost in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, Smart said that he's worth "more than 12-14 million". While the 24-year-old wasn't flashy stats wise, that's not the reason why the franchise has given him an extension.


Rory McIlroy makes ballsy claim after putting himself into Open contention
There's no point talking about the end game. "In theory, it seems like it's the last Open for me as far as turning back". He won the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship and Open de France past year , on both occasions defying nonexistent course form.


The show's creator Joss Whedon went on to write and direct the first two Avengers movies, as well as taking over directorial duties on Justice League when original director Zack Snyder was unable to finish the project. As a result, it's unclear how active his involvement in the new Buffy will be.

Whedon has been vocal about a possible Buffy reboot since 2017. She is credited as the writer and showrunner for a slew of other titles including Midnight, Texas.

The original Buffy series ran for seven seasons on The WB and UPN, eventually leading to a spinoff series, Angel, which ran for five seasons. Many were thrilled, while others are convinced no one should mess with perfection.

So, thoughts? Is it time for a "Buffy" reboot?
