10 More TV Shows In Need Of Revivals

3. Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Some shows capture a moment in time. Others are timeless classics. With Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the show that put Joss Whedon on the map after the director of The Avengers struggled to make it in Hollywood as a screen writer, you could say both are true. There's no question that certain aspects of the show really did capture a moment in time, most notably the chemistry between star Sarah Michelle Gellar and the show's original love interest for Buffy, Angel, played by David Boreanaz. It remains a timeless classic, however, as one of the best coming of age tales ever produced for the small screen, one that follows the titular character from the struggles of high school, to college, to the shock of taking on a menial job in early adulthood, all the while dealing with issues of morality, good vs. evil, and the pesky existence of vampires. While the show might have run its course back then, it has lived on in the comics, and it feels as if there's an unfinished chapter waiting to be covered: middle age. What would Buffy the Vampire Slayer be like as an adult. How would she have fared in the grown up world? Would she have settled down? Survived all the horrors thrown her way? Had children? What happened to Oz, and Riley, not to mention Giles, Willow, and Xander? Tell us, Joss! Comics are not enough, and we hear you're done with that whole Avengers gig...
