Buffy Won't Spin Off In Fall
There will be no Buffy the Vampire Slayer spinoff series, at least not next fall, cast and crew of the UPN series told E! Online. "Somewhere down the line," Anthony Stewart Head (Giles) told the site. "I reckon there will be a Buffy spinoff. There's no rush on my part, and I know the fans will wait."
The site also reported that Head and James Marsters (Spike) may make the transition to The WB's spinoff series Angel in the meantime. "I think maybe I will," Head said. "I talked to one of the writers about it and said it might be quite fun to bring me over there. It's such an open book, and that's what makes it so exciting."
"Yeah, I think I am," Marsters said. "Definitely, we don't know—but it is being talked about."
But other cast members were not sure. "I don't know, probably not," said Alyson Hannigan (Willow). "Right now I'm in talks for features and stuff, but nothing I can go into."
As for the upcoming Buffy series finale in May, the site said that it will deal with Angel (David Boreanaz) and Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), as well as Spike. "I'm in the process of writing the script now," creator Joss Whedon told the site. "The show is about life, and the final statement on life is death. On this show, it's not even that. You want to pay homage to the fact that [Angel's] a big part of [Buffy's] heart, no matter what, without saying anything definite on what will happen for them in the future." Buffy airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
