San Diego Comic Con is always the place for reveals, information and previews of upcoming titles, with one of the most exciting being Dark Horse’s confirmation of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 11 with series creator Joss Whedon. The comic company announced, “The talented comics duo of Christos Gage (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10, Avengers Academy) and Rebekah Isaacs (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10, Angel & Faith) returns with more shenanigans from the Scoobies”
The season is said to return a few months after the events of season 10 with things playing out relatively normal, but that it will soon change when a “supernatural disaster” shakes things up and demands the scoobies to intervene for the sake of the world once again. Series writer Christos Gage hinted that the series could be the biggest game changer of the entire Buffyverse with Joss being the one to initiate that something major is in the works. What will change this new season from the comic seasons 8-11 is the fact that there are only going to be 12 issues in a season. The implication of something kicking off the season will make each issue a crucial addition to season 11, with a dedicated narrative to equate a year of Buffy still.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 10 is on it’s last issue that will be released in August, with the current series pitting the scoobies against real life obstacles and a threat that could mean altering the rules of magic and creating an imbalanced world. Season 11 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be released in November, so keep up with PopWrapped for more updates on what’s to come in the BTVS comicverse courtesy of Dark Horse Comics and Joss Whedon!
