'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot In The Works With Black Lead Actress-1

Buffy is going black!

A “Buff the Vampire Slayer” reboot is in the works at Fox 21 TV Studios with a black lead actress!

Via Deadline:

Midnight, Texas creator Monica Owusu-Breen has been tapped as writer, executive producer and showrunner of the new Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with the original series’ creator and showrunner Whedon set to executive produce alongside original series’ exec producers Gail Berman, Fran Kazui and Kaz Kazui as well as Joe Earley from Berman’s Jackal Group.

The new version, which will be pitched to streaming and cable networks this summer, will be contemporary, building on the mythology of the original. Per the producers: “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 sources, the diversity in the show’s description reflects the producers’ intention for the new slayer to be African American. The sources cautioned that the project is still in nascent stages with no script, and many details are still in flux.

I absolutely LOVED “Buffy the Vampire Slayer!”

So, I’m totally here for this reboot especially with some melanin. Yasss diversity!

Who do you think they should cast as Buffy?
