    Joss Whedon has revealed that he is keen to bring Buffy The Vampire Slayer back onto either television or movie screens.

    Sci Fi Wire reports that the Buffy creator spoke of his enthusiasm for these projects at the William S. Paley Television Festival, where he explained: "There are so many stars that would have to align [for Buffy to return]. But, you know, there's a reason I worked with all of these people for so long. They're enormously talented. And clearly, from the comic, it's a story that I can't let go of. I think it would be really cool."

    In addition to the recently published comic, which follows on from the seventh season of the television show, Whedon suggested that a musical outing might be a future possibility: "I would love to take Buffy to Broadway... you would have to start from scratch. I've spent some time daydreaming about it, because I'm me."

    could be interesting,i wouldn't think it would happen just yet but cool nun the less.

    Even if it never happens it is good to know that Joss is open to the idea of some kind of return, I mean he would be the one person that it would depend on.

    I'd love for a return, but it seems completely impossible

    I think they'd have trouble getting a few people, but this leaves hope.

    Well sure i would LUV it if Buffy did return and as people have said its good to just have that idea there, even if it doesnt. but personaly i think that if they do there biggest trouble is to get SMG to get back on the show.. i've heard a few things, about it and apparently she doesnt want to, but i think that if the show does continue (and i hope it does) it will be bigger and better then ever!!!

    I am convinced that the BuffyVerse will be seen again in some form. Like Joss himself said, he "can't seem to put it past him" or words to that effect. To me there are two main questions that involve any BuffyVerse project in the future, 1) Will SMG be a part of them? 2) What form will they take (mini-series, Tv movie, actual movie or TV spinoff)

    Probably the most realistic for getting SMG would be a movie. The other cast members would certainly be game.

    At this point I'd take whatever I can get. I would much rather have SMG but as Angel The Series proved, you can find success without her.

    In the past SMG has said she'd never say never. The only times she's been against future Buffy arcs is through movies, because she doesn't see a real story being filled in only 2 hours. Plus, you have to think, she's a big role in her CARE project, traveling places and spreading the word about that organization...so how would that affect her TV scheduling.

    Then there's Alyson Hannigan. Grant if her CBS sitcom doesn't get cancelled, she would still be on "How I Met Your Mother" and would be obligated to that show.

    And now Michelle Trachtenberg is to be on Gossip Girl, so her role may become permanent...

    So, Sarah's not the only big questionable person.

    But Gossip girl has recently gone on a writers strike so... Michelle Trechtenberg might not get her chance til later on. so ya never know, being a young actress you'd think that she would get her hands on any role she can for a while, ya know to get herself noticed, not that im saying anything, im just saying...

    This is what Whedon needs to do: Create an entirely new spin-off with the Buffyverse mytho but with an entirely new cast, maybe some old characters could drop by, but it would be essentially a new series with a new plot. Like the new SG spin-off they want to do.

    It would be great to bring Buffy back on some form (not comics). I think the most probable for get SMG is a movie, not a tv movie, a movie, like somebody already said. I would really like a series, but that's really difficult to happen, but... you never know.

    And, as i love Angel, i would love to see Angel on television again, also.

    I didn't need nothing more on television. Just Buffy and Angel.

    They can always make time for it if they really want to, right?

    If we all wish really really hard we can achieve anything! It's not a vengeance wish, so it shouldn't backfire on us.

    I watch Bones because David is one of the stars, keep waiting for him to change. I liked the show Buffy because of Angelus and Spike, never did care for SMG.
