Season 7

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.

Like previous Slayers, Buffy is aided by a Watcher who guides, teaches and trains her. Unlike her predecessors, Buffy surrounds herself with a circle of loyal friends who become known as the "Scooby Gang".

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 7 premiered on Fox Entertainment on Sunday 20 March 2011, at 17h15. New episodes broadcast daily, seven days a week. There are 22 episodes in the seventh and final season.

Season 7

Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as Buffy, the quick-witted heroine whose duty as the sole vampire slayer of her generation is to protect the world from the undead, who yearns to be normal.

Trying to balance her new adult responsibilities with saving the world, Buffy remains cheerful and fierce throughout, even as her hometown of Sunnydale, California sits atop a Hellmouth, a mystical portal where all the demons of the netherworld converge.

In Season 6, Buffy The Vampire Slayer offered an inspired and seismic shift in the direction of the show. Buffy, now a single working woman, struggled to raise her sister by day and battle demons by night.

Her friends' lives took many tumultuous turns. Romances flourished and waned. The Scooby gang grew up. And in one of the most heralded hours on television, the Buffy gang put on an all-musical show featuring original music and lyrics written by Joss Whedon.

As the new season begins, the series takes a surprising and typically innovative turn with the reopening of the high school (famously obliterated at the end of the third season).

"That represents a lot of what we're talking about in terms of getting back to the very first mission statement of the show, which was the joy of female power: having it, using it, sharing it," explains Joss Whedon, the show's creator and executive producer.

This startling development will foretell new challenges and threats, which promise that the battle against evil is far from over.

And so the fight continues...
