Buffy the Vampire Slayer Reboot May Instead Be a Revival, Showrunner Hints
Into every generation, a slayer is born. And there’s a chance that the one we’ll meet in the proposed revamp of Buffy the Vampire Slayer may not be Buffy Summers 2.0, after all.

After establishing that she is a die-hard Buffy fan, showrunner and writer Monica Owusu-Breen (Midnight, Texas) tweeted Thursday that the characters that populated the original series “can’t be replaced. Joss Whedon’s brilliant and beautiful series can’t be replicated. I wouldn’t try to.”

She went on to say that in the years since Buffy premiered, “the world seems a lot scarier. So maybe,

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ New Boss Says ‘There’s Only One Buffy’ Amid Reboot Backlash
There may be another “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” televison show in the works but new showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen doesn’t see it as a replacement for the original series.

Owusu-Breen tweeted Thursday that “there is only one Buffy.”

“For seven seasons, I watched Buffy Summers grow up, find love, kill that love. I watched her fight, and struggle and slay. There is only one Buffy. One Xander, one Willow, GIles, Cordelia, Oz, Tara, Kendra, Faith, Spike, Angel… They can’t be replaced. Joss Whedon’s brilliant and beautiful series can’t be replicated. I wouldn’t try to,” she wrote.

Instead, she wants to focus on a new cast of characters, including a new slayer, for today’s complicated time.

The reboot of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” comes from original series creator Whedon, who is set to executive produce the new version of the story. Owusu-Breen will pen the pilot script.

Monica Owusu-Breen wants fans to know her “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” reboot isn’t going to try to “replace” the original series. Ok, you got that, Scoobies?

That said, the “Midnight, Texas” creator — who will be executive producing “Buffy”s return to the small screen along with Og creator Joss Whedon, and acting as showrunner — also thinks “it could be time to meet a new Slayer.”

“For some genre writers it’s ‘Star Wars,'” Owusu-Breen said in a statement posted to her verified Twitter account Thursday. “‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ is my ‘Star Wars’. Before I became a writer, I was a fan. For seven seasons, I watched Buffy Summers grow up, find love, kill that love. I watched her fight, and struggle and slay. There is only one Buffy. One Xander, one Willow, Giles, Cordelia, Oz, Tara, Kendra, Faith, Spike, Angel … They can’t be replaced. Joss Whedon

The hellmouth is opening again. 20th Century Fox has confirmed that a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” reboot is being developed. Original creator Joss Whedon is working with Monica Owusu-Breen (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) on a brand new story.

A TV reboot of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is in development at 20th Century Fox Television, Variety has confirmed.

Most viewers probably don’t remember this, but Bradley Cooper starred as a fictionalized version of the late Anthony Bourdain in a Fox sitcom based off his best-selling book “Kitchen Confidential.”

In the series of the same name, Cooper portrayed “Jack Bourdain,” an executive chef of an upscale restaurant called Nolita. The short-lived series ran for just one season on Fox during the 2005-06 TV season, averaging around 4 million viewers, according to Nielsen. Although 13 episodes were made, Fox only aired four of them.

The series premiered shortly after Cooper’s role in the 2005 comedy “Wedding Crashers.”

It also featured Nicholas Brendon, John Francis Daly, Jamie King, Bonnie Somerville, Owain Yeoman, John Cho and Frank Langella.
