Since it's better to be safe than sorry, I put the "Possible Spoiler" alert in the thread's title. The following article (story.news.yahoo.com) relates to Nicolas Brendon's future plans and therefore, by extension, his availability for either a "Buffy" related spin-off or "Angel" next season (presuming, of course, that there is a "Buffy" related spin-off or "Angel" next season):

'Buffy's' Brendon Takes Fox Pilot Dip
Fri Apr 11, 5:35 AM ET
By Nellie Andreeva

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" co-star Nicolas Brendon has been added to Fox's comedy pilot "The Pool at Maddy Breakers."

"Maddy Breakers" revolves around three 28-year-old women who struggle with the reality that they peaked in high school.

Brendon will play the ex-boyfriend from high school and current friend for one of the women, with Eric Nenninger (Fox's "Malcolm in the Middle") and Matt Bushell cast as the exes of the other women. Brendon plays the sardonic Xander on "Buffy," which will bow out next month after seven seasons.


Since it is just a pilot, meaning that there is no guarantee that the show will be a part of the FOX fall line-up, it is possible that Brandon would still be available for a post-"Buffy" spin-off. Also, even if the pilot is turned into a series, Brandon could still potentially be available for occasional guest appearances on either a post-"Buffy" spin-off or on "Angel" next season. However, IMHO, the fact that he would be pursuing another television project makes it pretty clear in my mind that he will not be a part of any "Buffy" related show next season.

i get the feeling that the plan now (depending on angel) is to take a season off from the buffy-verse and then pitch a show for the season after next.

I would bet that Nicholas' and Eliza's pilots dont have "lasting a season" on them and then would be ready to jump back to Papa Joss.

Brendon has said he wouldn't go to Angel.




As the days go by, we face the increasing inevitability that we are alone in a godless, uninhabited, hostile and meaningless universe. Still, you've got to laugh, haven't you?

Unless Xander has an amazing death, I have a very bad feeling about the end of Buffy. I am starting to think that no one is going to be alive at the end if Angel gets canned. I have heard that Nick was one of the people who begged Joss for a spin-off along with Alyson and James Masters. I am wondering now if Joss just realized he has no clout left after not getting SMG back, Firefly was a bomb and Angel is on the bubble.

If he does what Farscape did with their ending, I will never forgive him. I have seen four, count them four good series finales in my time they were DS9, Cheers, TNG and Babylon 5. Everything else was either hella lame ie Sienfield or just a huge let down ie X-Files. I am hoping that Joss doesn't slaughter all of them, but I don't know now.

A Fan- God help that cast.

I don't remember if it was here or not, but I read one leak about the end of the season that was very pessimistic and dark, mainly centering around the arrival of "The First"'s cleric, played by the guy from Firefly.

Best TV ending ever: Newhart.

I have to wonder if the supposed darkness and pessimism surrounding the end of Buffy isn't a reflection of Joss' pessimism since all his projects are falling apart before his eyes. Then again, I seem to be the only person who thinks Angel has a chance in hell of being renewed by the WB right now. I still think Xander should show up on the supposed Willow spin-off which is to debut in 2004, but that's just more naive optimism on my part.

And what is up with the Firefly cast showing up in roles on Buffy and Angel now that their show is gone?

I'd also like to second that Newhart had the best ending ever.

I apologize for being a Buffy/Angel mark.

Not that unusual. Remember after Space:A&B was cancelled, many of the cast started showing up on X-Files, most notably Kristen Cloke (who is married to Glen Morgan).
