Series summaryEdit

Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is an ordinary Californian girl... well, except for the fact that she is The Chosen One, given supernatural strength and agility by an ancient curse to make her the latest warrior in an eternal fight against vampires, demons and all manner of evil. After burning down the gymnasium at her last school - to be fair, it was full of vampires - Buffy and her mother move to Sunnydale, California. There she discovers that her school is built on a Hellmouth, a portal of evil that attracts all kinds of terrible strangeness from around the globe. Joined by geeky Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendon), hacker and trainee Wiccan Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan), bitchy alpha-cheerleader Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter), mysterious vampire with a soul Angel, and Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head), a representative of the Watchers that keep an eye on all Slayers, Buffy battles the twin evils of the Hellmouth and chemistry homework.


  • The series is a spin-off of the film, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • At the end of Buffy's third season, the characters of Angel and Cordelia were spun off into Angel. There were multiple crossover storylines between the two series, and two other Buffy regulars eventually became regulars on Angel: Wesley Wyndham-Price and Spike.
