Sarah Michelle Gellar has opened up about the possibility of appearing in a Buffy reboot.

Since its premiere in 1997, Buffy the Vampire Slayer has often been considered one of the best shows in television history.

The series, which starred Gellar in the titular role, focused on a teenage girl bestowed with supernatural abilities to defeat vampires, demons and the forces of darkness.

During its seven-season run, the show delivered critically acclaimed episodes like Hush, The Body, and Once More, with Feeling.

It also made TV history for its unapologetic LGBTQ+ representation – specifically regarding queer Scoobie Gang members Willow Rosenberg (Allison Hannigan) and Tara Maclay (Amber Benson).

The show has even been credited for inspiring shows like True Blood, Charmed, Veronica Mars, The Vampire Diaries, iZombie and Jessica Jones.

While the popularity of the Buffy property shows no signs of slowing down, it looks like its star has no plans to return for a reboot or revival.

“I am very proud of the show that we created, and it doesn’t need to be done. We wrapped that up,” Gellar told SFX Magazine in a recent interview, per CBR.

However despite not wanting to return, the Scream 2 actress added that she’s all for the show continuing without her iconic character.

“I am all for them continuing the story because there’s the story of female empowerment. I love the way the show was left: ‘Every girl, who has the power can have the power,'” she said.

“It’s set up perfectly for someone else to have the power. But like I said, the metaphors of Buffy were the horrors of adolescence. I think I look young, but I am not an adolescent.”

Gellar’s comments come a few months after a producer from the planned Buffy reboot revealed that it was essentially shelved.

The show, which was initially confirmed in 2018, was set to feature a Black lead and be helmed by original series creator Joss Whedon and Fringe alum Monica Owusu-Breen.

However four years after the show was announced, producer Gail Berman revealed that it was “on pause” during a 2022 interview on The Hollywood Reporter’s TV Top 5 podcast.

She then clarified her comment further by stating that the term “on pause” was “industry speak for purgatory, make of that what you will.”

Berman had previously worked on the original Buffy series and its spin-off Angel as one of its producers.

Here’s to hoping the slayer mantel will continue in the future.
