Buffy the Vampire Slayer will return to TV, Sarah Michelle Gellar's titular role to be played by black actress
The original Buffy the Vampire Slayer series was based on the 1992 film of the same name and starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy.
Los Angeles: A TV reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is in development at 20th Century Fox Television.
According to Variety.com, original series creator Joss Whedon is onboard to executive produce with writer Monica Owusu-Breen attached to write the script.
The rebooted series will see a black actress take over the title role, which was played in the series by Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Gail Berman, Joe Earley, Fran Kazui and Kaz Kazui will also executive produce. No network is currently attached to the series but it will no doubt stir up a bidding war among various networks and streaming services when it is taken to market.
Breen's previous credits include Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which is executive produced by Whedon. She also developed and served as showrunner on Midnight, Texas at NBC, but departed the show after one season. She has also written and produced shows like Charmed, Alias, Brothers & Sisters and Fringe.
The original Buffy the Vampire Slayer series was based on the 1992 film of the same name, which Whedon wrote and that starred Kristy Swanson as Buffy. The show ran for seven seasons and 145 episodes, and is frequently cited as one of the best shows ever made.
