According to Deadline, 20 Century Fox Television has confirmed it is developing a revival of the series, with creator Joss Whedon coming on board the project as executive producer. Agents of SHIELD's Monica Owusu-Breen has been hired to pen the updated Buffy.
No network or timeline for the series has been announced, but there's one other concrete detail: This time around, the titular role, last played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, will be played this time around by a black actress.
The reboot hasn't been given an air date and is not yet attached to a network, but is expected to be pitched to streaming services such as Netflix at a later date.

At an event in Sao Paolo, the Brazilian striker said he is not leaving PSG and is committed to helping the team win more titles next season.
No casting announcements as of yet but Whedon is helping with the script and serving as executive producer on the reboot. "And until Joss decides it's time, it won't happen".
Talk about bringing Buffy back started in fall 2017, according to the report, resulting in extensive debate and evaluation.
Whedon, whose take on The Avengers helped to push the Marvel Cinematic Universe into high gear, has undergone increased scrutiny in recent years; his ex-wife, Kai Cole, wrote an open letter alleging years of emotional abuse, and a leaked screenplay for an unproduced Wonder Woman film was roundly criticized. Whedon then moved the project to television, starting in 1997. The beloved series ran seven seasons and spawned a spinoff, Angel, that ran for five seasons. The canon of the series has continued in comics; Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12, which is slated to be the final season, started its run in June 2018.
