Dark Horse and Joss Whedon Announce Buffy the Vampire Season 11


Joss Whedon is one of the busiest creators in the industry and he's about to get even busier. Whedon and Dark Horse have just announced that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is hitting Season 11. Christos Gage and Rebekah Isaacs are teaming up for more shenanigans from the Scoobies. After overcoming the struggles of Season 10, Buffy and the Scoobies give themselves a well-deserved break from fighting evil. Unfortunately, the momentary peace comes to a screeching halt when a supernatural disaster wreaks havoc on the citizens of San Francisco, and the gang is forced to save the world from imminent doom, again.

“Buffy fans have been wonderful to Rebekah and me throughout Season 10," said Gage, "so I couldn’t be more excited to keep our creative team together for Season 11! True to form, Joss is not content to just rest on his well-earned laurels, so Season 11 will shake things up with a story that’s shorter, bigger, more epic, and presents what may be the greatest challenge Buffy and the Scoobies have ever faced. We hope the readers will enjoy the ride!”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 11 will have twelve issues total. The first issue goes on sale November 23, 2016. Karl Moline (Fray) will create a special Dark Horse 30th Anniversary variant cover for the first issue. Whedon is signing on Saturday, July 23, from 5 PM to 5:50 PM in the Dark Horse booth at San Diego Comic-Con. Gage will sign from 1 PM to 1:50 PM on Thursday, July 21. Full press release below.
