SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR WANTS ZENDAYA IN BUFFY REBOOT

Chiiiild I feel old, because I can’t believe this year marks 25 years since Buffy The Vampire Slayer graced our TV screens and left it’s imprint on the pop culture zeitgeist. The series ran from 1997 to 2003 on The WB and UPN.

I remember hearing rumblings of a Buffy reboot back in 2019 with the slayer being played by a young black actress.

I actually thought it would be an interesting take to see Buffy go from the suburbs to the hood, because personally speaking, I don’t understand why there aren’t many stories being told in regards to the horrors that plague urban neighborhoods.

Recently Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar gave her thoughts on who she would like to see step in her famous slayer shoes.

I vote Zendaya,” Sarah tells Evan Ross Katz, the author of a brand new book titled Into Every Generation a Slayer Is Born: How Buffy Staked Our Hearts.

The book, which explores the history and cultural impact of the groundbreaking television series, was released just last week. The official synopsis reads, “Evan Ross Katz explores the show’s cultural relevance through a book that is part oral history, part celebration, and part memoir of a personal fandom that has universal resonance still, decades later.”

I’d like to see Zendaya as the iconic vampire hunter, but she’s quite busy. In addition to Euphoria returning for a third season in 2024, she’s about to reprise her role as Chani in Dune: Part Two for director Denis Villeneuve, and I’m sure she’ll be in the follow-up for Spider-Man: No Way Home
