It almost pains me to follow my Dr. Jenkins interview with this, relatively fluff, piece of news, but I know for a fact that we have rabid Buffy fans among our readership, and we haven't had much television news for you recently, so here it is. According to SciFi.com it looks increasingly as though there will be no 8th season of Buffy on UPN.
For many of you, this is as troubling as a cloudy day. For others, this might very well lead to much wailing and gnashing of teeth.Read more for details:
A source close to Fox Television, which produces Buffy the Vampire Slayer for UPN, has told SyFy Portal a rumor that the network won't bring the show back for an eighth season.
"There is a whole different attitude at UPN right now, and it's not the same attitude that first brought Buffy to the network in the first place," the anonymous source said. Les Moonves, president of UPN parent CBS, reportedly wants ratings winners and nothing else, the source added.
Joss Whedon appears to be on a roll, though not a positive one. The article suggests that had Les Moonves had his say two years ago UPN never would have picked up the show. It's important to note that there has been no official word from UPN.- Elysium
