Has there been any recent updates on the revival/reboot/spinoff of Buffy since Disney acquired the rights?

It just dawned on my recently that the announcement that Fox we’re developing a new series set in the Buffyverse was prior to the Disney purchase.

I wonder is this something that Disney plans to go ahead with.

I was looking earlier today and couldn't find any recent news.
Hopefully we here something soon. I imagine everyone involved is just as much in the dark as we are. With Disney acquiring so many rights with the FOX purchase it will likely take them a while to decide on the future of each individual project.

Should we start a rumor that Buffy is going to become a member of the new Avengers team? Or maybe Willow is going to costar in the Scarlet Witch's new series? That would really light up the internet.
I like your thinking. Willow in Scarlet Witches new series is a rumour I think the internet needs 😂

Oh wow I just checked Monica Owusu-Breen’s Twitter & there’s nothing about Buffy in her bio but she namechecks Agents of Sheild & Midnight Texas which aren’t exactly as iconic soo......

After a year of not hearing anything I’m just leaving it at it isn’t happening. I’ll be surprised if it is going forward - especially with the Disney thing.

I think that's reasonable. Granted, a lot of pre-production happens in the shadows, but no network and no casting announcement probably means the producers weren't able to secure funding for the pilot, or the showrunner's schedule is still being worked out.

Disney shelves A LOT of stuff that they begin. Even really big stuff that's been announced as ABSOLUTELY happening...sometimes doesn't.

You never know with Disney until (whatever it is) has come to fruition. They're not big on keeping their word.

I think this New Slayer Series won't happen, but as long as it isn't Buffy, is tune in to see it. Worst thing - it sucks and I don't watch again.

I'm waiting for "If the apocalypse comes, text me!" :)

I'm going over to Twitter right NOW and I will do that. 😅

In fact, I'll add that Dark Phoenix will be joining Scarlett Witch.


Done. 😈

It is perfectly possible that it is being developed in secret. There were hardly any news about The Nevers until they began filming.

It would be hilarious if the "rumour" became reality...

Why doesn't anyone check their spelling before sending out tweets? If you're such a big Buffy fan, learn to spell Willow's last name, please.

(sorry, pet peeve)
