Report: Reboot ordered for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, features black lead

Buffy fans, it’s about to feel like 1996 again.

Deadline reports that Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be getting a reboot. According to Deadline’s sources, producers are looking for a black lead to spearhead the new project.

“Like our world, it will be richly diverse, and like the original, some aspects of the series could be seen as metaphors for issues facing us all today,” producers told Deadline.

While everything is still so new and details are most likely going to change, this would be the first bit of Buffy fans have seen since the show ended in 2003.

There’s no timetable on when to expect the reboot.
