BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Reboot With A Black Lead In The Works From JUSTICE LEAGUE's Joss Whedon

Big news Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans! It's been revealed that a reboot is in the works and the plan is for an African American actress to take on the lead role in what sounds like a very diverse series.

With Comic-Con in full swing, it's been revealed today that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is returning to television. Don't expect to see Sarah Michelle Gellar back in Sunnydale, though, because Fox is looking for an African American actress lead to play a rebooted version of the character. As of right now, no script is in place and many details are "in flux" but finding a diverse star sounds like a major priority.

What we do know is that Midnight, Texas creator Monica Owusu-Breen will write, executive produce, and serve as showrunner for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer that's described as, "richly diverse, and like the original, some aspects of the series could be seen as metaphors for issues facing us all today." Joss Whedon will also executive produce and the show will be shopped around later this summer.

 
Whedon and Breen worked together on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and while he will be involved creatively, it's thought that she will actually be spearheading the reboot (hence why she's been named showrunner(. It's going to be in good hands regardless because her past credits include the likes of Alias, Lost, and Fringe. Are you ready for a new take on Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Sound off below.
