The “Scoobie Gang” is getting back together in an all-new incarnation. Hot on the heels of Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s 20th Anniversary, publishing house Simon & Schuster have announced they will be publishing a new spinoff series. Slayer will see Buffy and Willow pass the torch to a new “Chosen One” while empowering a new crew of teens to keep the evil forces of the Hell Mouth at bay.
EW can exclusively reveal that Simon & Schuster’s teen division, Simon Pulse, will publish a new spinoff series of the cult classic television show that will be written by New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White. The series, which will be published in the fall of 2018, will be titled Slayer and will feature a brand new slayer from the group of potentials that Willow used her Wicca skills to awaken in the show’s final episode.
In addition to the new Slayer series, S&S is working on another Buffy book: “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Twenty Years of Slaying, a special hardcover collector’s edition that highlights all the best content from Volumes 1–3 of the original Watcher’s Guides, as well as exclusive new content, including never-before-seen interviews with the cast and crew.”
We don’t know how long Buffy and Willow will be sticking around, or if any other characters from the TV series will be making appearances—but we’re anxious to find out!
We don’t have release information for any of these tomes yet, but we’ll keep you posted as details emerge. In the meantime, check out the video below from our friends at FoundFlix: BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER 20th Anniversary: Exploring Why it STILL Rules!
