Buffy's Dead, But Not Really

Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon told TV Guide Online that his heroine is really, truly dead. "Yes," Whedon told the site. "She's rotting in her grave even as we speak."

Ah, but isn't Buffy picked up for two more seasons on UPN? And won't the show continue to star Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy? "Yes," Whedon said cryptically. He admitted to being worried about alienating fans by bringing her back from the dead, but added, "The point is, you have to take it seriously and pay it homage and make it as hard and strange for the people in the show as it is for the audience to accept. Then you earn it."

But Whedon did say to expect changes next season. "Giles will be recurring next year, instead of a regular, because [Anthony Stewart Head is] going to live in England," he said. "We're working on a BBC [spinoff] show for [that character]." UPN will add Buffy to its fall lineup with a two-hour season premiere in early October, Whedon added.
