It is easy to understand why an actor like DB or SMG might be reluctant to revisit a character that's over for them. There is the whole type casting thing and also the desire for a new challenge and the hope that, in DB's and SMG's cases especially, a new role will bring them the same success in the future they had in the past. It must be hard to forever be tied in the public's mind with a certain character and certainly they are to be commended in their desire for new creative directions. Sad for us fan types but, if I was in a similar position, I don't think I would ever want to revisit such a role once it was over.

With writers though, I think it is a different story. Their creative endeavors are not in the same sense "them". It 's easy to understand why DB might get irritated by people only wanting to talk about Angel when he is publicizing a new series. He isn't Angel the vampire, he just played him once upon a time, and now he 's doing something else. But with writers like JW, expressing interest in their creations is like expressing interest in a parent's child. Any parent will tell you that telling us how wonderful are our children just never gets tired. So if JW gets a good enough offer or he suddenly sees a new story idea, or the stars align just so, a new Buffyverse project is entirely possible. But probably not, unfortunately, with many of the actors that made BtVS and Ats so compelling. And this new story is going to have to find its audience on its own merits, at least for me, because I have resigned myself to never getting closure on the old story.
