'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' to be rebooted with black lead

A network has yet to be announced, but Whedon is now working with Monica Owusu-Breen to write the script. The project is set up at Fox 21 TV Studios, with series creator Joss Whedon working with Midnight, Texas creator Monica Owusu-Breen. There was briefly a black slayer in Buffy (there's only one slayer, but Buffy briefly died, which created two slayers), but it will be terrific to see a black actress in the lead role. It will be pitched to streaming and cable outlets later this summer. It's unclear if Whedon will have any additional role on the new Buffy due to his other commitments. It seems that the reboot is only in the infancy stage of development at this time, especially since a cast has yet to be determined as well.

The new Buffy will be "contemporary", according to The Hollywood Reporter, and "build on the mythology of the original". A network is not yet attached for the new Buffy, talks for which began last fall.

A week after HBO announced Joss Whedon's return to television, an even more surprising report has emerged during Comic-Con weekend: Buffy is back.

And earlier this year, Fox's Gary Newman openly discussed the network's desire to bring Buffy back from the metaphorical dead. The writer/director wouldn't rule the idea out, but he revealed that he had "fear" over the idea. Whedon's fear is the same one that all of the fans have about seeing a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot: how will it ever stack up to the original series? This is a developing story and more news is expected to drop soon.
