Playing Sarah Michelle Gellar on Resurrecting 'Buffy': Expectation Level Would Be ‘Difficult’ to Top

It's been 12 years since Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended its seven-season run on television, and the nostalgia for the cult favorite is very much alive and well.

The vampire slayer herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar, reminisced about her days as Buffy Summers on the Joss Whedon series with a sentimental Instagram post Wednesday.

"12 years ago, I said goodbye to a friend. It was an incredible journey that, I am so incredibly proud of," Gellar wrote. "Thank you all for joining me, and continuing to tell her story."

With popular TV shows of the past such as Full House and Twin Peaks returning to television, is it time to resurrect Buffy?

"I'm a little on the old side," Gellar, 38, joked to ETonline. "I feel like my walker [or my] cane would be the stake."

The mother of two admitted that while she and the fans still have such a strong connection to the series, which ran on The WB and UPN from 1997-2003, it's unlikely that lightening could strike twice.

"I think it's hard," Gellar admitted. "What we created was such magic and I think that it's very difficult to recreate that and I think that inevitably as much as fans say they want it, I fear that the expectation level would be very, very difficult for something like that. I would worry."

While it doesn't look like the Sunnydale gang will be back anytime soon (boo!), fans of Gellar can catch her next in the second season of Star Wars Rebels, which reunites her with her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. But don't try to guess whether her character on the animated series is either on the dark side or light, the actress has been sworn to secrecy.

"I can tell you absolutely nothing," she said. "George Lucas has literally made me sign away my two children if I say anything."

Star Wars Rebels season two begins June 20 on Disney XD.
