Now that this project has been established as more of a sequel than a full on reboot,
This is all news to me. I was of the impression that they were going to pretty much go back to a variation of "Welcome To The Hellmouth." Is it supposed to take up after the end of Season 7, and pretty much ignore "Angel" Season 5, or does it pick up after "Not Fade Away"?

Or does it, by some chance, take up the story after the end of Season 12 in Dark Horse?

The characters that I want would depend on whether the comics would still be considered canon or not because some of the characters I only really came to like after the show ended.

They should bring back Anne. She's the mother of the new slayer (showing a mixed race couple on television is still uncommon especially when the woman is white and the guy black) and she called her daughter Buffy after the original series Buffy who helped her get her life back on track and saved her from Ken.

As a brief memory flashback or maybe as part of a bad dream, they could show the scene from Lie to me where Spike comes in and starts feeding off Anne (it would be a nice little in-story cameo that links back to the older series without all the fanfare of "this week our guest star is...."

Also, using Anne would explain why the scoobies don't appear on the show. She's not in contact with any of them and thus they can't be called in to help.

Damn it, I wrote my post before seeing yours! We kind of had the same idea about a new Buffy. Great minds, babe. 😅

You know, it does occur to me, if Buffy stays dead after the gift, it really does make a usable scenario. SMG doesn't have to make an appearance. The Slayer Army is gone. The Watchers are still active. Sunnydale is still a place. Cordie, Anya, Tara, even Fred can still be alive. The Trio never formed, so three freelance chaos wizards are still around. The First never showed up. Angel still happened in broad strokes, heck, Buffy could have come back years latter, or is even a higher being, and anything would be better than the last two seasons and the comics. Joss's original vision!

If they could have Dawn come back, with a daughter who is the Slayer, that could be interesting. After all, Dawn was created from Buffy, so one could say the Slayer line is a part of her as well...and her daughter. Who she named after her big sister, of course. That could work, with Michelle being the mom figure, like Joyce was.

I think the mythos can continue without it invovling characters we already knew and loved. Cameos from them are great but not as regulars. I'd want a sort of Star Trek: TNG for the Buffyverse. A slayer doesn't necessarily have to one girl in all the world to have her own world put plenty of weight on her shoulders.
