Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an American supernatural fantasy television series created by Joss Whedon under his production tag Mutant Enemy Productions which follows Buffy Summers, the latest in a line of young women known as Slayers, who are chosen by fate to battle against vampires, demons and other forces of darkness.

The series aired in the USA on The WB from 10 March, 1997 to 20 May, 2003. There are 144 hour-long episodes in seven seasons.

The series originally aired in South Africa on M-Net from 2 December, 1998 to 28 November, 2003. It later aired on DStv's M-Net Series channel and on TopTV's Fox Entertainment channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 5 premiered on Fox Entertainment on Friday 4 February 2011, at 17h15. New episodes broadcast daily, seven days a week. There are 22 episodes in the fifth season.

Synopsis

"In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer."

Buffy Summers knows this tale by heart, and no matter how hard she tries to be just a "normal girl", she cannot escape from her destiny...

Buffy is like any other regular high-school girl - she likes boys, shopping, clothes and combat fighting.

Okay, so she’s a little different to other high-school girls and that’s because she has the pressure of defending the world against a hellmouth spewing forth the worst demons, vampires and other scary monsters imaginable.

If Buffy thought life in L.A. was tough, she realises it has nothing on her new hometown, Sunnydale.

Thankfully, she is not alone in her quest to save the world, as she has the help of her friends, the hilarious (and surprisingly quite effective) evil-fighting team called "The Scooby Gang".

Under the careful guidance of her Watcher, Giles, and her soulmate, Angel, Buffy tries to deal with the pressure of the world on her shoulders and luckily has her friends, Willow and Xander, to help her kick butt along the way.

Together, Buffy and co. will slay their demons, survive one apocalypse after another, attend high school and college... and above all, understand that growing up can truly be Hell sometimes... literally.
