IGN: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Saga Continues in Season 11


You can’t keep a good Slayer down

BY JESSE SCHEDEEN – Buffy the Vampire Slayer may have been off the air for 13 years now, but the saga is still going strong. Today Dark Horse Comics announced (via USA Today) that Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11 will be debuting in November.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11 will feature the Season 10 creative team (writer Christos Gage and artist Rebekah Isaacs) chronicling the further adventures of Buffy and the Scooby gang. Creator Joss Whedon will continue to sever as executive producer for the series.

A lot will have changed for Buffy and her friends by the time Season 11 kicks off. They’ve moved to San Francisco in the aftermath of Sunnydale being swallowed up by a Hellmouth. Buffy and Spike are attempting to have a real, normal romantic relationship. Giles is trapped in the body of his teenage self. And perhaps the biggest change of all is that the world at large is now aware of the existence of supernatural creatures.

Gage teased that major changes will be unfolding for the Buffy universe at the very beginning of Season 11. “Previous apocalypses have been of the world-ending variety, and they’ve tended to threaten toward the end of a season. This one kicks off Season 11, and it’s not quite world-ending – more world-changing. It’s the way the world changes that will provide new challenges for Buffy and the Scoobies, of a kind they’ve ever faced before.”

Gage also reaffirmed Whedon’s commitment to continuing the Buffy saga, saying, “He’s incredibly busy. He can do anything he wants to, creatively: TV, movies, comics. The only reason he has to be involved in this is his love for the characters and telling stories with them.”

Look for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 11 #1 to hit stores on November 23.
