Monica Owusu-Breen (Midnight, Texas) will serve as a writer, executive producer, and the series' showrunner, while Joss Whedon - the mastermind behind the Buffy movie and the long-running original TV show - is also on board as an executive producer. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the reboot "will be contemporary and build on the mythology of the original". As for Owusu-Breen, she already worked with him on Agents Of SHIELD and is collaborating with the creator on the show show.

No network or timeline for the series has been announced, but there's one other concrete detail: This time around, the titular role, last played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, will be played this time around by a black actress.

"[The new Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be] like our world, it will be richly diverse, and like the original, some aspects of the series could be seen as metaphors for issues facing us all today", read a statement provided to Deadline by the producers. However, no network is attached to the project yet. Producers Fox 21 TV Studios will pitch the Buffy re-do to streaming and cable outlets later this summer in a package bound to ignite a bidding war.

No casting announcements as of yet but Whedon is helping with the script and serving as executive producer on the reboot.

Fox has reportedly been trying to bring Buffy the Vampire Slayer back for a while now.

And apparently, Whedon has decided that it is time.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer is available on DVD in its entirety. Whedon then moved the project to television, starting in 1997.

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.
