The series led to several novels, comic book series and video games.

Buffy even had a spin-off series, called Angel starring Gellar, which ended one year later in 2004.

In 2018, a spin-off sequel was announced as being in the works, with Monica Owusu-Breen as showrunner.

Sadly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended after seven seasons in 2003.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in 2003, Gellar explained the show had come to a natural end.

She famously said:” Buffy, in this incarnation, is over.”

Buffy creator Joss Whedon added: “There’ve been times that we didn’t get along.

“There have been times when we’ve palled around. But no matter what, she was the other half of ‘Buffy.’ In seven years, she never let me down.”

Since leaving Buffy, Gellar has gone to star in several films and television series including, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and The Grudge.

She went on to have leading roles in Suburban Girl, TMNT and Veronika Decides to Die.

Gellar starred as Bridget Kelly / Siobhan Martin in the short-lived thriller series Ringer and as Sydney Roberts in The Crazy Ones.

She also made a guest appearance in the final ever episode of The Big Bang Theory in May 2019.

In February 2020, Gellar joined the main voice cast of Netflix and Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation in the role of Teela.
