Buffy Spin-Off Ripper Finally Happening
The Ripper a spin-off from Buffy The Vampire Slayer, is headed to the small screen at long last. According to FIlmick, at the Collectormania Glasgow event Anthony Stewart Head revealed the Ripper series is finally going into production next summer, under creator Joss Whedon’s charge.
Ripper was originally proposed some years ago as a BBC co-production while Buffy The Vampire Slayer was still at The WB," Filmick notes. "It’s to be set in the UK and Anthony Stewart Head is to lead a line-up of new characters, much the way Angel did when he went to LA."
Don’t get your hopes up for any Buffy characters showing up – at least, not without a lot of negotiations and legal wrangling.
Much thanks to our pal Larry Shell for the lead.
