Buffy Season 12 Announced.

https://www.cbr.com/buffy-the-vampire-slayer-season-12-comic-joss-whedon-gage-jeanty/

EXCLUSIVE: Joss Whedon Returns to Buffy for Dark Horse’s Season 12

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is back for Season 12 with a four-issue miniseries from Joss Whedon, Christos Gage and Georges Jeanty



Buffy the Vampire Slayer is back for a twelfth season, and so is creator Joss Whedon.

Dubbed Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning, Dark Horse Comics’ latest Buffyverse series will be co-written by Whedon and longtime Buffy writer Christos Gage, while Georges Jeanty returns to illustrate the characters’ adventures once again. This will be Whedon’s first time tackling a specific arc since 2011’s Buffy: Season Nine, while Gage previously worked on Buffy: Season 11; Jeanty’s last fulltime Buffy gig was on Season 8.

Picking up after the world-altering finale from Buffy Season 11, the series’ synopsis indicates that the Scooby Gang have had an uncharacteristically laid back year away from fighting the forces of evil. However, when Xander and Dawn’s housewarming is gatecrashed by some familiar faces, Buffy and her crew will reach for their stakes once again. Forced to battle with a legion of demons, Wolfram Hart and a vampire from the future called Harth, Buffy will apparently find herself trapped in a time warp that could end the Slayers forever.

With alternate futures clearly playing a big part, The Reckoning will once again bring back future Slayer Fray, who first appeared in 2001’s self-titled spin-off. The Reckoning will see the return of Faith and Angel, as well as fan-favorite Illyria, though whether they help or hinder the cause remains to be seen.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning #1 goes on sale on June 20 and will be available with three variant covers from artists Stephanie Hans, Georges Jeanty with Karl Story and Dan Jackson, and Karl Moline, which you can see for yourself in the gallery below.

The first issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning will be able to pre-order from comic book shops in March.


.


Here's the link to the slidshow of all three covers.

https://www.cbr.com/buffy-the-vampire-slayer-season-12-comic-joss-whedon-gage-jeanty/#gallery=1

1)Season 12 is a four issue miniseries that launches in June(June 20th)
2)Joss is co-writing with Christos Gage.Georges Jeanty is on art.
3)Wolfram & Hart and Harth from Fray are the big bads
4)Angel,Faith,Illyria and Fray are all involved.

I think the baby on this cover is Xander and Dawn's

Exciting news! There seems to have been indications in the initial publication that this would be a “4 issue mini.” Can @Christosgage @CBR @DarkHorseComics confirm if that was a typo and if so how many issues we can anticipate? Thanks!

We'll issue our own announcement soon, but in short, this is planned to be the finale season. We plan to do more Buffy adventures in the future, but this is the last in the "season" structure.

11:29 AM - 21 Feb 2018



They may do more Buffy comics in the future(I expect limited series stuff like The High School Years for example) but this is the last season.

Angel and Faith are coming back into the Buffy story with this season, which is the last "season" structure for these comics, yes. More to come when we have details to share.

@Christosgage since this looks the end, I'll petition for Gunn and Connor to come back.

Appreciate the sentiment, but the four issues are SUPER packed as it is, so don't get your hopes up...though I won't close the door completely. (Still writing.)

Why am I worried about this? It’s probably the sure spuffy endgame looming ahead... I’ve never cared that much about the comics but the idea of my favorite character’s ending being my biggest notp is a bit depressing, even if I don’t connect much to comics Buffy.

At least Angel and Faith will be there... but I wish Illyria wasn’t.

Best. News. Wondering if we'll get more of an indication why Willow went Dark in the future with the return of Harth and Fray?

Yes, that will be explained. Or as Joss puts it, "Why was [future] Willow so sad?"

At least a mention for his son and one of his closest friends seems right. Rather they not be forgotten like it seemed during the whole Twilight thing.

They're in my mind, and Angel's too. Remains to be seen if they are directly mentioned, but I will try!

With 'alternate futures' playing a big part in the #Buffy comics final season 12, what alternate futures would you like to see? Personally, I'm hoping to see #Spuffy AND #Bangel fans get their happy endings! @joss @Christosgage @KabaLounge @BuffyTVS pic.twitter.com/10fXotHShV

I want #Spuffy to have a happy ending, but if both fandoms can somehow have a nice ending that would be awesome.

I know what you mean. My biggest hope is that Joss won't be able to resist being Joss and will come up with something that will throw us all for a loop.

Will he be able to resist the spuffy fans forever idolizing him though? I'm not sure he has it in him to take as much chances as he did back then. But yeah, I don't need a Bangel endgame at all. I just don't want a Spuffy one. So I'm really bracing myself because I can't imagine it going any other way at this point... and especially not when there's only 4 issues left.

Should we read anything into the fact that on the big battle the variant cover Spike is positioned furthest away from Buffy?

Is that symbolic in any way or do I just have my bangel goggles on too tight?

I don't know if it mesns anything.The core four are the closest together.Plus Buffy and Willwo are the two characters most connected to the future of Fray.Remember,Willow was still alive and went dark again in that future.She was aligned with Harth in the season 8 crossover arc with Fray..

ETA

It just broke a little while ago that Joss is off as writer/director of Batgirl.

The Batgirl news breaks the day after the season 12 news with Joss

coincidence?

There have been many miniseries that are Buffy canon but not strictly in the season format, such as the Willow and Spike spinoffs. Further comics will be more along these lines, still canon, and yes, Joss will continue to be involved in all Buffy comics.

The miniseries thing is good news I think. It will feel less strained and more focused, hopefully.
