Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Elsewhere, Sarah Michelle Gellar stated she has no intention of ever reprising her role as Buffy Summers in a new interview with SFX Magazine (via Games Radar).

I am very proud of the show that we created and it doesn’t need to be done. We wrapped that up. I am all for them continuing the story, because there’s the story of female empowerment. I love the way the show was left: Every girl who has the power can have the power” It’s set up perfectly for someone else to have the power. But… the metaphors of Buffy were the horrors of adolescence. I think I look young, but I am not an adolescent.

The Walking Dead: Dead City

A new Dead City confirms The Walking Dead spinoff is set “years” after the events of the series’ finale.

Years have passed since we last saw Maggie and Negan and they must now form a tenuous alliance in order to accomplish a dangerous mission. Maggie and Negan journey to the island of Manhattan, which, having been isolated since the beginning of the walker apocalypse, has developed its own unique threats. While in the city, Maggie and Negan encounter native New Yorkers, evade a marshal with a troubled past, and hunt down a notorious killer. But as the pair moves deeper into the gritty depths of the walker-infested city, it becomes apparent that the traumas of their tumultuous past may prove just as great a threat as the dangers of the present.

The Witcher

Speaking with Collider, Lauren Hissrich confirmed we still have “eight-ish months” before the premiere of The Witcher’s third season.

We haven’t discussed that [splitting the season] yet, but at this point I think what we see happening across all sort of streamers, I wouldn’t rule it out. I do think that, obviously, we don’t put anything out that we’re not incredibly proud of. So that dictates our entire launch date. And I think it’ll be interesting. Again, we have a way still a very long time, eight-ish months or so until Witcher Season 3 comes out. So God willing, we get it all out at the same time. But who knows, we’ll see what happens.
