I'd like to see elements taken from the Boom comics in any new reboot. I think Boom Xander is great, it's nice to see Joyce having a romantic relationship, and Willow being out at the start of the story. Their Buffy is not well written and has little actual character and I'd hope a reboot would make the effort and spend the time to give Buffy a personality.
I think the comics are a great way to test out various ideas, the most successful should appear in the series, but turning the Comics into "Rebuild of Buffy?' Like if Xander shows up in Buffy of Color, he's the guy who was turned into a vampire? No, that's not needed. That's as bad as Joss insisting the movie didn't happen, but the original script did. Unless they hard reboot the series (which, in all fairness, why wouldn't they?)
The comics were places to try out ideas (like moving everything to Scotland) that would be too expensive to do in a TV series. Going from the comics would involve carrying on from all the choices that were made in the comics. It wouldn't make things any better than a hard reboot.
I know I won't get this, but I'd personally like to see all of the old cast come back for one epic season to pass the torch to new characters. More specifically, I think there is a storyline to be pursued with Buffy being much much older than she was when we last saw her. If vampires were the problems you have to overcome in your youth, why can't Joss & co. apply that same principle to the problems of aging?
The last time we saw Buffy in the TV series, she had shared her power with many girls throughout the world. The last frame suggests she is now free to live a normal life, but that also comes with a down side. What if not being the only chosen one, having to be ordinary-ish, and having to take a backseat to younger slayers gets a little dull after a while? What was once a burden may be welcome to a much more seasoned Buffy. I'd like to see her have to prove herself all over again and make her peace with all that she has accomplished, and what she still has left in her.
To that purpose, I'd like to wrap up any questions or longings fans had from the original series, and wrap it up in such a way that there can be no more repeats with the original cast. By the end of that first season reboot, it should be completely handed over to the next generation.
Of course, none of this will happen. It has been made pretty clear that if it does get made it will be with an entirely new cast and concept, but a girl can dream.
