This is not a drill. We repeat: THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Sarah Michelle Gellar, AKA Buffy the Vampire Slayer, heroine of our dreams and basically the most kick-ass leading lady in television history, has confirmed she’s pretty much up for a reboot.
SMG spoke to The Hollywood Reporter, where she weighed in on whether or not Buffy should get the reboot treatment (like Gilmore Girls, Charmed (!), Full House, The X-Files, Twin Peaks and just about every other TV show on the planet) and her answer was veeerryy promising.
"I have always believed that what was so unique about the show was the use of horrors of those formative years," said SMG, "With high school and college as a backdrop, we were able to address racism, identity, bullying, guilt, death, first love and heartbreak using the demons as metaphors for the demons we all experience.”
“I am not sure how that translates into adulthood, although I am sure it could,” she said.
SOUNDS LIKE A YES TO US.
But although Sarah Michelle seems to think the idea would work, it seems there’s one condition.
“The burden of saving the world a lot always weighed heavily on her, so for her sake, I hope she is somewhere on a beautiful beach located far away from any Hellmouth,” she said.
Does anyone have Joss Whedon’s phone number?
