Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an American television series; a supernatural drama that aired from March 10, 1997 until May 20, 2003. The series was created in 1997 by writer-director Joss Whedon under his production tag, Mutant Enemy Productions with later co-executive producers being Jane Espenson, David Fury, and Marti Noxon.

Years before Buffy the Vampire Slayer came to television sets, there was a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie starring Kristy Swanson. The film was mostly ignored by the television series - and by fans of the series - although the first episode of the show suggests that the events of the movie at least partially happened for the version of the character played by Gellar.Read More
