Could Buffy the Vampire Slayer be the next classic show to get the revival treatment? Probably not, but it's POSSIBLE.
Speaking at the #BlogHer16 exposition in Los Angeles on Friday, Sarah Michelle Gellar talked about the possibility of dusting off her stake for some modern day vampire slaying.
"You never know!" she teased, according to ET Online (opens in new tab). "Hold on – you never know… but that being said, the point of Buffy, what was so special about it was, it was a metaphor of the horrors of high school. The monsters were literally the manifestation of the horrors of that time. That's a very specific story. I don't know what that story is now."
As much as we'd love to see Buffy return to TV, we understand that the story might be finished in that medium — but true mega-fans are already following the continuation of Buffy's story through the canonical comics (the first issue of Season 11 is set to be released this fall (opens in new tab)).
But, SMG fans can't be too sad. Buffy might be totally retired from TV, but another of Gellar's iconic characters definitely isn't. She's set to reprise her role as the oh-so-evil Kathryn Merteuil in the Cruel Intentions TV show.
"Yes, my hair is darker because of Cruel Intentions," she confirmed. "Look for an announcement probably in the next month and a half. The road is taking a little longer than normal. We have to do it right. It's a naughty show and we have to pay homage to what it is."
We'll take all the SMG we can get on our TVs, so we say a big yes to all of this.
