Sarah Michelle Gellar won’t be a part of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer restart
Sarah Michelle Gellar appears to have no interest in repeating her role as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the show that earned her much fame in the late ’90s. The Chicago Tribune reported this week that the star has no plans to return for a reboot some twenty years later.
During an interview with Mario Lopez, Sarah explained how Buffy worked her own way because of the monsters themselves, which she believed were metaphors for the “horrors of youth.”

Buffy The Vampire Slayer has since become a cult classic among fans who have gotten older and moved on. For example, these are the people that make up Generation X and Generation Y now. Even if it’s a popular show and she has a lot of respect for it, Sarah says she’s not coming back.
Sarah Michelle Gellar, 43, who is married to Freddie Prince Junior and has existed since 2002, claimed that the challenges of getting back to work on a television series were just too great for her at this point in her life.

Sarah joked with the presenter that she was “far too tired and moody” to work on a TV show like that again. While Buffy The Vampire Slayer wasn’t particularly popular during its 6 years of existence, it was hugely popular with the younger demographic, The Chicago Tribune reported.
In other words, Sarah doesn’t want to be part of a Buffy The Vampire Slayer restart, but she appreciates the fact that the plot and idea lasts for so many years.
When asked about Joss Whedon, the series creator who has since been accused of molesting his staff, Sarah Michelle Gellar declined to say anything about it, but Sarah allegedly implied there was bad blood with an IG post which you can see here:
The post said that Sarah was very happy to be associated with Buffy, the character, but she didn’t want to be associated with Joss Whedon for the rest of her life. Charisma Carpenter, who portrayed Cordelia Chase, alleged Whedon “abused his power several times”.
