FOX has been no stranger to the idea of revivals, resurrecting the likes of “The X-Files,” “24,” and “Prison Break” in recent years. However, there is one show the network has thought about bringing back – “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”.
Speaking at the INTV Conference, Fox TV group chair Gary Newman says: “‘Buffy’ is probably the most ripe show we have for bringing back. It’s something we talk about frequently, and Joss Whedon is really one of the greatest creators we ever worked with. When Joss decides it’s time, we’ll do it. And until Joss decides its time, it won’t happen.”
Though airing on both The WB and UPN, Fox produced the series and thus retains the rights. There was previously a film reboot in development at Warners but that never got off the ground.
At the same presentation Newman also said that chances are good that “Gotham” will get a fifth season as the show “should have a place in our schedule” and its move to the super competitive Thursday night this year “did a pretty good job of opening up that night for us”.
