Jane Espenson to Write ‘Oz’ Miniseries
Jane Espenson will be writing a five-issue Oz miniseries as part of Dark Horse’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer series.
"I’m doing this five-issue Oz arc," Espenson told Sci Fi Wire. "I am planning on doing a lot of writing on that over the Christmas break. The next thing I’m going to do is finish this Dollhouse script, then we get into that Oz comic and really, really knock that out."
Oz was the series’ resident werewolf and rock star, played by Seth Green. He was also romantically linked with Willow before going on his own mission. Will that mission be a part of the miniseries? "Oh, that is top secret, my friend, but it’s super cool," Espenson said, adding: "You’ll see a wolf or two. There might be a wolf."
Now that Willow has realized she’s a lesbian, does that mean Oz finds a new girl friend? "I don’t think wolves mate for life," Espenson said. "I think there could be a new mate. We’ll see."
This is not the popular writer’s first visit to comics, as she previously wrote a story focusing on Tara, Willow’s fellow wiccan lover. No schedule or artist for the project have been announced.
