Sarah Michelle Gellar: 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' shouldn't get a reboot
Sarah Michelle Gellar hates to be the bearer of bad news, but she totally just drove a stake through your dreams of a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" reboot. The actor and founder of Foodstirs swung by BUILD Series yesterday to chat about her brand new cookbook Stirring Up Fun With Food.
Gellar, who is best known for her portrayal of Buffy Summers in the Joss Whedon series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," addressed fan demand for a reboot after EW's recent cover story featuring a cast reunion for the show's 20th anniversary.
"[Fans] want [a reunion] until they see it and they don't like it," joked Gellar. "By the way, this body couldn't put up. I would break every bone in my body."
Gellar went on to explain why "Buffy," unlike "Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life," wouldn't make for a great revival.
"'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' was about the horrors of adolescence...I don't know necessarily what that translates into today [except a very tired girl who doesn't want to work all night long in a graveyard]," quipped Gellar.
"'Buffy' lives on in fanfiction, in comic books, in graphic novels...It's immortal and none of [the cast] are...If it ain't broke, I'm not fixing it."
Sorry Buffy fans, but you can still get a healthy dose of Gellar with Stirring Up Fun With Food. The Hachette-published cookbook teaches you how to make "beautiful, tasty food that doesn't have to be super complicated," Gellar said. The creative, kid-friendly recipes range from mummy hot dogs to apple pie pops for the pickiest eaters and most reluctant chefs.
There's even a cauliflower popcorn recipe you can snack on while binge-watching Buffy reruns.
