Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar has categorically ruled herself out of returning for the I Know What You Did Last Summer legacy sequel.

Released in 1997, the original slasher saw her star as Helen Shivers, one of four young pals who find themselves preyed upon by a hook-wielding madman in their seaside town – she doesn't make it out alive.

Acknowledging her husband Freddie Prinze Jr's involvement in the next movie, who'll reprise Ray Bronson, Gellar recently told ET: "That's funny, I heard that news as well. And one of my best friends [Jennifer Kaytin Robinson] is directing it. It's interesting, isn't it?"

Despite confirming that Robinson had pitched a possible Helen return to her, the Wolf Pack star isn't looking to rise from the grave any time soon.

"As I explained to Jennifer, I am dead. I am dead dead. On ice," Gellar stated.

"She's like, 'Are you sure you're dead dead?' I'm like, 'It's soap dish dead. I don't have a head. You can't write for someone that doesn't have a head. I'm dead.'"

While we keep our fingers and toes crossed that she'll change her mind, the actress did reveal that she's revisiting I Know What You Did Last Summer in the comfort of her own home.

"My husband is starting a podcast going over old horror movies and the first one that they're doing on his podcast is I Know What You Did Last Summer.

"So he was at the house watching it and I honestly don't think that I'd seen it since it came out. I was watching that scene when she's like two seconds away from getting to the party and then they get her. Also, if you notice, at some point I ditch the heels and I'm barefoot because I ditched the crown and the heels," she further recalled.
