Monica Owusu-Breen, showrunner for the upcoming Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot, took to Twitter on Thursday to address concerned fans' feelings about the new version of the show, which has been rumored to star a black woman as the lead.
In case you missed it, the fervent Buffy fanbase let it be known that it wasn't into the idea of a new take on the beloved show. Some suggested greenlighting a "new horror/supernatural show by another creative."
Joss Whedon, creator of the first series, will serve as executive producer on the new iteration.
Others predicted it would be "a total flop" and directed the yet-to-be-filmed series to "go to hell."
Owusu-Breen began her response by saying, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my Star Wars."
She then launched into her own affinity for the series, saying, "For seven seasons, I watched Buffy Summers grow up, find love, kill that love. I watched her fight, and struggle to slay."
