I know we have a solid contingent of Buffy and Angel fans around here so I figured a couple news bits wouldn't hurt. According to AICN, James Martsters (the guy who plays Spike on Buffy) mentioned that if Angel gets taken on for another season Joss Whedon would like him to join the cast.
I was at Grand Slam convention in Pasadena. During James Martsters Q and A, he said that the spinoff idea is still up in the air and may end up happening or might not. But he said that he was recently asked by Joss Whedon to join the cast of Angel next season. He has agreed, and he believes that Angel is definetly going to be renewed for a 5th season.
Suits me fine, I like Spike and his fancy new soul well enough. The actor himself is like 42 or something so hopefully he won't suddenly melt on set.Finally, UPN has released the show schedule for the last episodes of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. Read more for that!
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, which has garnered both extraordinary critical acclaim and a fiercely devoted fan base, will conclude its seventh and final season with five all-new episodes beginning Tuesday, April 15 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN.
