ANOTHER BUFFY SPIN-OFF?
TV Guide talked to Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon who says that the show is definitely over, but another spin-off is possible.
'But it doesn't mean the Buffy universe is closed or that there aren't potential spinoffs, like Willow or whatever. But it does mean that Buffy, as we know it, will end.'
When could we expect a new series? 'It may come next season, it may come later. That is, something new [may come] that is a part of that universe the way [sister show] Angel was, but it won't be Buffy the Vampire Slayer.'
He also says he won't recast the character of Faith for a spin-off, since Eliza Dushku has moved on to a new Fox pilot. 'I would never have a different actress playing any of the characters I've established. I could create shows around different characters, with different permutations and structures for the characters, but it would require coming up with a new show. It wouldn't just be, you know, like, more of the same with some of the same people. It would have to be the way Angel is not Buffy ? it would have to be neither of them [but rather, something unique]. And I don't know what that show is or would be or could be because my brain is very sleepy. But I certainly don't rule that out.'
