Sarah Michelle Gellar Puts Stake Through Heart Of Buffy Revival

You know that demand to bring back Buffy The Vampire Slayer thirteen years after it left the airwaves? No? Well, we didn't know about it either. But apparently the demand exists, enough for The Hollywood Reporter to ask about it in an interview. And she shot it down:

I have always believed that what was so unique about the show was the use of horrors of those formative years. 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. 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 sounds like she's got it about right to us, though we're surprised to see anyone in Hollywood advocate for letting something from the past stay in the past. With so many old properties rising from the grave like hordes of intellectual vampires, hoping to suck the nostalgia from the veins of the living, the opportunity to not cash in on a Buffy reunion shows some real conviction.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we have to go binge-watch Fuller House again.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
