"When Joss decides it's time, we'll do it". But even though Sunndydale was swallowed into the Hellmouth itself, Fox's powers that be are interested in dusting off their stakes and taking another stab at bringing Buffy back at some point in the future - Whedon willing, of course. Buffy the Vampire Slayer took what could have been a gimmick ("high school is hell") and turned it into one of the best TV shows in history. However, the network has built up a reputation for bringing back their successful series.
Whedon's exit from a potential Batgirl film does free up his time to return to work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
