As fans wait for any signs of another Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV or movie project, Fox says its up to creator Joss Whedon to decide when the time is right.

If a Buffy revival did happen, it would follow in the footsteps of FOX's recent TV resurrections; The X-Files and Prison Break, with Newman acknowledging that "People are aware of the show, you don't' have to build awareness".

He said that while Fox has brought back some favorite shows, it's not what the network focuses on.

"Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with", he said.

We can only imagine where Buffy would pick up 20 years on. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains.

Two decades on from when Sarah Michelle Gellar first kicked some undead ass on our screens, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is still just as popular as ever, with a large and loyal fanbase whose love for Joss Whedon's supernatural adventure/high school drama series has never faded.

Sure ... either way, while I get why the series is still big enough to be considered a worthwhile investment, I would argue that we don't need a reboot of Buffy-not now, anyway.

Hollywood has been digging up archives for reboot and remake possibilities, and it might not be long before "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" gets the treatment.

Whedon has expressed interest in continuing Buffy's story in the past, and even hinted at how he might do that. Do you remember the brief Buffy stints of these soon-to-be-famous actors? It's not new, and numerous ways that Buffy Summers was written, that were progressive then, are not always progressive now.

"But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up". So many shows have used Buffy The Vampire Slayer as a jumping off point at this point that a reboot would have to do something decidedly different to adapt itself to where the cultural conversation now lies. Joss' inspiration for the series came from a desire for something more than what most thrillers offered - a cliché blonde being killed off while making out with her boyfriend on a secluded road. "But, you know, AFTER", Whedon told E!
