A revival of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Sarah Michelle Gellar she is no longer interested. The actress, who owes her success to the supernatural teen series where she played the vampire hunter for seven seasons Buffy Summersrecently returned to have its say on a hypothetical continuation or reboot that has been talked about so much in recent years.
A revival Buffy the Vampire Slayer it’s possible?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired on American The WB for seven seasons and 144 episodes between 1997 and 2003, making Gellar an idol for the teenagers of that time. In the era of continuous reboots, there has been talk of a revival on several occasions. The most recent attempt dates back to 2018 when a new series was in development with him at the helm Monica Owusu-Breen and the showrunner himself from the original series Joss Whedon. The storm that hit Whedonwhich in recent years has been accused on various fronts of abuse and inappropriate behavior on its sets, and the pandemic have done the rest by hindering the new project, which has therefore stalled.
Statements by Sarah Michelle Gellar
Talking recently with SFX Magazine, Sarah Michelle Gellar she reiterated that she is not interested in returning to the role of the Sunnydale high school girl deployed against the forces of evil:
I am very proud of the series we have created and there is no need for a revival. We had finished the series.
However, the actress hasn’t said she’s entirely against a possible revival of Buffy the Vampire Slayerjust wouldn’t feel like being a part of it:
I support anyone who wants to continue the story, because there is a story of women’s emancipation. I love the message of the series which is ‘Any girl with power can have power’. It’s set up perfectly for someone else to have the power. But, as I said, Buffy’s metaphors were the horrors of adolescence. I think I look young, but I’m not a teenager.
Already in the past Gellar, although she has always shown that she is very close to her character, she said she felt too “old” to return to the role of the formidable vampire hunter and had proposed the possibility of passing the baton to a new young star. Which actress would look good playing her? One of the names she had mentioned had been that of Zendayabut his remains for the moment only a wish.
