Whedon will be executive producing this time around, and Monica Owusu-Breen, who worked with Whedon on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, has been hired to write and produce the series, as well as serve as its showrunner.
No casting announcements as of yet but Whedon is helping with the script and serving as executive producer on the reboot. Owusu-Breen is set to write/showrun the new series if it gets off the ground.
Gail Berman, Joe Earley, Fran Kazui and Kaz Kazui (who produced the original Buffy film starring Kristy Swanson) will also serve as executive producers on the project.
No network is now attached to the series, but it will no doubt stir up a bidding war among various networks and streaming services when it is taken to market.
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.

According to the mythology initially established in the 1992 Buffy The Vampire Slayer movie, technically-speaking, all vampire slayers are by definition a reboot of the first Slayer.
THR also notes that the studio will be pitching this new Buffy to streaming and cable networks this summer, and a bidding war seems likely. The show spawned the spinoff, Angel, where Buffy's former flame went to Los Angeles to fight supernatural evils.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer originally ran for seven seasons on The WB Network and UPN from 1997 to 2003.
Whedon's fear is the same one that all of the fans have about seeing a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot: how will it ever stack up to the original series? Its cast includes Sarah Michelle Gellar, Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, David Boreanaz, Kristine Sutherland, Seth Green, James Marsters, Marc Blucas, Emma Caulfield, Michelle Trachtenberg, Amber Benson, and Tom Lenk.
