"Buffy The Vampire Slayer" Star Has One Condition Before Considering Revival

It's been twenty years since Buffy The Vampire Slayer premiered. Crazy right? Well, it seems like no matter how long it's been since a popular show started or went off the air, fans still want it back.

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Buffy star Sarah Michelle Gellar to find out what playing such an iconic character really was like, and if she would be up for a reboot.

Buffy will always be a special character to Gellar, especially because she spent her formative years playing her. Portraying such a strong character was great for Gellar and taught her a lot.

"She taught me it wasn't about being perfect; it was about trying the hardest to be the best you you can be. Buffy reminded us that being different was not only OK but really cool — and at a time when most kids are trying to desperately fit in."

When it came time to debate the potential of a revival, Gellar had some opinions.

"I have always believed that what was so unique about the show was the use of horrors of those formative years. With high school and college as a backdrop, we were able to address racism, identity, bullying, guilt, death, first love and heartbreak using the demons as metaphors for the demons we all experience. I am not sure how that translates into adulthood, although I am sure it could." - Sarah Michelle Gellar

So she doesn't know HOW a reboot would work, but admits that it COULD. She did however have some hopes for Buffy - her one condition about Buffy's current life.

"The burden of saving the world a lot always weighed heavily on her, so for her sake, I hope she is somewhere on a beautiful beach located far away from any Hellmouth." - Sarah Michelle Gellar

Do you think they should bring back Buffy? Where do you think she ended up?
