    ‘Fangs Crossed’: Dolly Parton Gives An Exciting Update On ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Revival

    What an era it was when vampires and vampire hunters ruled fantasy drama television. Though that era is gone we have entered a new one and this is the era of reboots. So buckle up, Buffy fans! Dolly Parton spills the tea on the potential revival of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

    It’s a lesser-known fact but a fact nonetheless that singer Dolly Parton is one of the producers of the show. The fantasy drama that ran from 1997 to 2003 was produced by Dolly’s production company Sandollar Productions which she co-founded with her former manager Sandy Gallin.

    In a recent interview with Business Insider, the iconic country singer, Dolly Parton, shared thrilling news about the potential return of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘. “They’re still working on that,” said the singer. Without revealing when or with whom she continued, “They’re thinking about bringing it back and revamping it.

    Sarah Michelle Gellar, Buffy herself, let slip some facts about Dolly’s behind-the-scenes role last year. Gellar gushed, “Little known fact, the legend Dolly Parton was a producer.” Although never crossing paths, Gellar received Christmas gifts signed by the country legend. 

    She continued, “We never saw her but we’d get Christmas gifts in the beginning that would have our name, and I would think, ‘She doesn’t even know who I am.’ And then one day, someone asked her about it, and she complimented the show and my performance. I was like, ‘Oh, I can die now. Dolly Parton knows who I am and thinks I’m good.’” The ‘Jolene’ singer‘s praise of Gellar’s performance, left the the Slayer star awestruck.

    Gellar’s take on a potential revival? She’s all for it but with a caveat. “We wrapped that up,” she stated in a recent interview. “The metaphors of Buffy were the horrors of adolescence, I think I look young, but I am not an adolescent,” Gellar explained. 

    While she advocated for continuing the empowering narrative, she emphasized the show’s metaphorical journey through the horrors of adolescence: “I love the way the show was left: ‘Every girl who has the power can have the power.’ It’s set up perfectly for someone else to have the power.”

    As the whispers of a Buffy comeback gain momentum, fans brace themselves for a ‘fangtastic’ hunt, ready to sink their teeth into the beloved supernatural series once more. The Slayer may rise again!
