Word broke last week that there will be a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show, with Joss Whedon producing and longtime TV writer/producer Monica Owusu-Breen showrunning. The initial reports were that it was a reboot, specifically an ‘inclusive’ reboot, which made it sound like a remake but with Buffy herself being non-white.
This was disappointing to me. Not the non-white stuff, but the reboot stuff. I think that the universe of Buffy/Angel is strong and big enough to sustain a Buffy: The Next Generation; there’s no need to go back to the drawing board. Just make a sequel.
