Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a great show and should be brought back to life now that there are several different takes of vampire shows going on like the Shadow hunters, Twilight movies along with other SyFy shows.
However, using the original cast may not be the best idea because they’ve gotten older and aren’t able to portrait to the right demographics (specifically the younger demographic). They should pick it up with Buffy as the mom and trying to prepare her teenage daughter for what she’ll eventually go through. Just like her mom, the new Buffy will have help along the way, she’ll also have her mom by her side as well.
Sarah Hyland should be playing the role of Buffy (daughter of the original Buffy and Angel). Zoey Deutch should play Buffy’s best female friend (like Willow), while Dominic Scott Kay or Jimmy Bennett can play a male best friend (like Xander) or an enemy (like Spike). The other characters should get to relive their character roles because the show was started with them. I believe that by adding a new generation to Buffy the Vampire Slayer will allow the show to create a new generation of fans. Of course, the names of the characters can’t be the same, so you’d have to come up with new names, but that’s a good thing. You have to be creative and start somewhere.
The new version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer should be very similar to the original, but with new characters there are new problems and challenges they face. There is more drama between friends and enemies as well as with finding the vampires that keep the new “Buffy” character on her toes. There are more enemies then there were when her mom was the slayer and yet she’s still coming to terms to who she is. The new “Buffy” isn’t sure if she wants to be the Vampire Slayer. She eventually figures out that she doesn’t have a choice as she is the “Chosen One”. Some of the enemies are teachers, a principal, a governor and others who’re involved in politics, book store owners, and so many others.
The original show was an amazing one with drama and action all over the place. It’s definitely a show that should get remade and retold for the new generation to see. This show started the love of vampires, werewolves, and hunting them down and killing them as well as saving all of mankind. I believe that if it wasn’t for the original show that a lot of the shows that involve vampires or werewolves wouldn’t be as popular as they are.
I believe that the ratings for the show would be around 8 or 9 stars. The younger generation is really getting back into the shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer was back in my generation. There are so many different shows that are similar and yet they are being watch all the time. Newer generations need more Buffy and the Scooby gang.
