Dolly Parton Gives An Update On ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Return

Her company, Sandollar Television, was involved in the original series and is now discussing bringing it back.

In a recent conversation with Business Insider, country music icon and producer Dolly Parton shared updates about the much-anticipated reboot of  ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer.’

According to Parton, the original series, which aired from 1997 to 2003, is possibly poised for a return, with her production company, Sandollar Television, playing a role:

“They’re still working on that. They’re thinking about bringing it back and revamping it.”

There are reportedly ongoing discussions about reviving and revamping the series. However, Parton did not specify who exactly is spearheading this project. Reflecting on her role in the original series, she mentioned her indirect involvement due to her location in Nashville while the series was being filmed in Los Angeles.

Was Dolly Parton in ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’?

Parton’s involvement with the ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ franchise dates back to the show’s inception. Although best known for her music career, Parton and her former manager Sandy Gallin’s Sandollar Productions were key in bringing the original ‘Buffy’ movie and subsequent TV series to life. Sandollar Television, the TV production arm of the company, was responsible for all seven seasons of the series, along with the spinoff show ‘Angel.’ However, Parton didn’t appear in the series.

Attempts to Revamp ‘Buffy’

Created by Joss Whedon, ‘The Buffy‘ series follows the story of Buffy Summers, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, a young woman destined to battle against vampires, demons, and other forces of darkness. The show, known for its blend of horror, comedy, and drama, has been praised for its portrayal of a strong female lead and remains a part of popular culture.

Attempts to reboot the franchise have been in the works for some time. In 2018, Whedon and screenwriter Monica Owusu-Breen worked on a proposed reboot featuring a Black lead character. This announcement initially led to misunderstandings among fans, but Owusu-Breen clarified that the reboot would introduce new characters, not recast Buffy Summers.

‘Buffyverse’ continued to expand beyond the original series. Last year, several cast members reunited for an Audible series titled ‘Slayers: A Buffyverse Story,’ set a decade after the show’s finale. This series introduced a new slayer, Indira, and included the voices of the original cast members.

While fans eagerly await more news on the reboot, Parton is also busy with other ventures. She recently released a rock album titled ‘Rockstar‘ and announced new dessert mixes in collaboration with Duncan Hines.
