Buffy Coming Back! Well …. Sort of!

Most fans, including myself, were left feeling shortchanged and screaming for more when “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” went off the air after seven seasons. It was even worse when “Angel” got yanked, but that’s a whole other can of worms. Season Eight in comic form never really did it for a huge percentage of the fanbase, but it looks like Whedon and company may have found a solution.

According to Sci-Fi Wire a series of motion-comic webisodes based on Whedon’s “Season Eight” comics is very much on its way and casting people to do voiceover work as we speak.

Based on the breakdown, the series will be based on the comics and feature the characters Twilight, the Big Bad of Season Eight, and evil British socialite Slayer Lady Genevieve Savidge, who plots to usurp Buffy’s place in the Slayer hierarchy.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Masked Slasher

    I loved the first six seasons of Buffy, but S7 was sloppy, phone-in and very poorly written (so many characters do things out of character) that I always felt the show went out with a whimper.

    Then, somehow, ‘Season 8′ was even worse. Those shitty Dark Horse comics all but runined my interest in the series.

    Still a great series for six seasons though.

  • kiddcapone

    Wow, you’d think such a “legendary” show would have better treatment…Is Ellen Degeneres writing any of the episodes?

  • Nomad

    I hate motion comics with a passion.
