"And until Joss decides it's time, it won't happen", he said.

Hear that Joss? If the apocalypse comes and you want to return to Buffy, beep Fox. "When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it", Newman explains. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up.

The overall victor said he was nervous because of the rain falling prior to his start, but felt well during the TT. Crucially, Caruso was only 37th, yielding another 21 seconds to his rival and thus missing out on GC victory.

In the era of reboots on top of revivals on top of reboots, you may be wondering why Fox's cult favorite, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, hasn't risen from its grave yet. According to the folks over at Deadline, Fox Chairman and CEO Gary Newman told members of the press, when discussing the success of recent reboots like X-Files and 24, that "Buffy The Vampire Slayer is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back", and added that "It's something we talk about frequently".

"Reboots aren't actually a focus for us", Newman continued. There's still plenty of shows that FOX could revive, however, and one that the network has thought about is Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but they have one condition. It's not clear whether or not a revival or reboot would take the comics into consideration. "You bring something back, and even if it's exactly as good as it was, the experience can't be", he told THR. "I don't rule it out, but I fear that".

Either direction seems fraught with peril, unfortunately, and ultimately not as interesting as letting Whedon, still one of TV's most iconic showrunners, develop a fresh new idea.

Whedon had once looked at continuing the story as a movie, but news on a Buffy revival has so far been confined to comics and novels. Since Buffy Summers enabled all potential slayers with slayer powers at the end of the show's run, a reboot is definitely possible. As Sarah Michelle Gellar told THR past year, the character of Buffy was pretty incredible. As long as all the original creators and actors are back, consider me intrigued by the possibility at least. "Buffy reminded us that being different was not only OK but really cool - and at a time when most kids are trying to desperately fit in".
