With the current golden age of reboots and revivals, will Buffy Summers live to slay another day? According to Gary Newman, head of the Fox Television Group, a return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is something that’s “frequently” discussed but would never happen without the blessing of series creator Joss Whedon.

“It’s something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with,” Newman said at the INTV Conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday, as reported by Variety. “When Joss decides it’s time, we’ll do it. And until Joss decides it’s time, it won’t happen.”

Tim Allen Says He's 'Very Interested' in a 'Home Improvement' Reboot (Exclusive)

  Tim Allen Says He's 'Very Interested' in a 'Home Improvement' Reboot (Exclusive) The 64-year-old actor opens up to ET about the realistic chances of a revival for the popular '90s sitcom.The 64-year-old actor starred as toolman Tim Taylor on the popular TGIT sitcom that ran for eight seasons from 1991 to 1999 on ABC that launched Allen's acting career. Based on his stand-up, the family comedy co-starred Patricia Richardson, Zachery Ty Bryan, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Taran Noah Smith, Richard Karn, Debbe Dunning and the late Earl Hindman.

Fox is apparently looking to appease a good number of those people by acknowledging that, yes, it has talked about resurrecting Buffy The Vampire Slayer . That’s according to Variety , which says Fox TV group chair Gary Newman recently admitted that a new Buffy —whether it’s a reboot or a revival

Will " Buffy the Vampire Slayer " rise up and become undead in this era of endless reboots and revivals ? Producer Fox Television would like for that to happen, but only if creator Joss Whedon is on board. Gary Newman, head of the Fox Television Group, said that a revival of " Buffy ".

But does Whedon want to revive it? When EW reunited the cast to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary in 2017, he seemed to think a revival could work.

“Everything sort of finds its way back somewhere,” Whedon said. “I’ve been trying deliberately to move forward and do something a little bit different. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. If we did it with these guys, they’d be the age they basically are. They’d probably play a little younger because they can do that. But yeah, you’d see somebody going through their life at a different stage. It wouldn’t be like, ‘I can’t believe we’re still in high school! I wear Depends!’”

Newman further acknowledged that he “wouldn’t get out of the building alive” if he actually announced a Buffy reboot, but said the property is “the most ripe show we have for bringing back.”

Bill Gates to meet with Trump at White House

  Bill Gates to meet with Trump at White House The meeting, scheduled to take place in the afternoon, is closed to press, according to the White House schedule. It is unclear what they plan to discuss. The two met during the transition at Trump Tower and last March at the White House where they discussed a "shared commitment to finding and stopping disease outbreaks around the world."Since then, the Trump administration's policies and the president's derogatory comments about African countries and Haiti have caused problems for the billionaire philanthropist. Gates could not be immediately reached for comment.

‘ Buffy the Vampire Slayer ’ revival is ‘ frequently ’ discussed , says Fox head . By BestActor on March 14, 2018.

Will " Buffy the Vampire Slayer " rise up and become undead in this era of endless reboots and revivals ? Producer Fox Television would like for that to happen, but only if creator Joss Whedon is on board. Gary Newman, head of the Fox Television Group, said that a revival of " Buffy ".

Newman does see the “marketing opportunity” that comes with reviving past hits, especially when there’s so much television in development. “[If] people are aware of the show, you don’t have to build awareness,” he said. “If the show’s beloved, you get a great deal of intent to view right from the get-go.”

Sarah Michelle Gellar starred as Buffy in the original series, and the story of the Slayer still speaks volumes today.

“The most important thing to me is that I have had people come up to me and say the show made me feel different about what they could be, about what they could do, about how they respond to problems, about being a female leader,” Whedon told EW. “People getting strength from my own little terrors is… There is no better legacy than that.”

Gellar then marked the 21st anniversary, which had an added significance this year.

“I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the anniversary of #btvs is the same week as #internationalwomensday,” the actress wrote on Instagram. “I have always believed that the world is changed by your example, not by your opinion. We have all learned a lot from Buffy, and the best part is, that never ends.”

Casio revives its musical, game-playing calculator from the '80s

  Casio revives its musical, game-playing calculator from the '80s Back in 1980, Casio released a musical, game-playing calculator cleverly named the MG-880. So far, the price point is to be determined, though the expected retail price may be around JPY 2,000. Sales outside Japan are yet to be determined, too. According to the Japanese-language press release, "The calculator is equipped with a simple and fun shooting game that intercepts approaching 'number' invaders by pressing the decimal key as many times to match the numbers in the target." The device will also work as a basic calculator, with a tax function, battery and solar power options and an extra-large number display.

A Fox executive says that a Buffy the Vampire Slayer revival has been “ frequently ” discussed at the Fox Television Group. But thankfully, the revival would never move forward without the blessing of creator Joss Whedon.
