SFX Hot Topic: What would you like to see in the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

TODO alt text

Time to sharpen up Mr Pointy, people! There's a new Buffy the Vampire Slayeron the way from 20th Century Fox TV. Midnight, Texas creator Monica Owusu-Breen is the Chosen One - she's signed as writer, executive producer and showrunner, and we're promised a fresh, more inclusive take on the original series, building on the established mythology while delivering a more diverse approach to casting and storytelling. Joss Whedon is also onboard as executive producer.

So what do you want to see in the Buffy reboot? Should classic stories and characters be retold and reimagined or should the show strike out into brand new territory? What modern monsters and metaphors should the young Slayer be battling? Who should play her? Is it a good idea to resurrect this beloved franchise - or should the original remain the one and only?
