Unfortunately Joss Whedon isn’t reviving the Buffy-verse on television.
Buoyed by the success of the eighth season of “Buffy, the Vampire Slayer” running in comic-book form, Dark Horse has decided to move forward with a sixth season for “Angel” that takes place on the printed page.
And while the series has Whedon’s blessing, he won’t be as hands-on with “Angel’s” sixth seaon as he is with “Buffy’s.” Dark Horse announced that comic-book veteran Brian Lynch will oversee the new comic-book series.
When we last saw the Angel Investigations crew, it appeared Wesley had died and Angel, Gunn, Lorne, Spike and Illeria were facing down an army of demons. The series was cancelled by the WB in its fifth season but given enough time to create a resolution to some of the arc plots. Whether or not the comic series will pick up with the epic battle is yet to be determined.
