BUFFYVERSE CANON LIST & GUIDE

Here is my chronological list of Buffyverse works that are confirmed canon by Joss Whedon.  There are more detailed lists out there, but this one will give folks a simplified idea of what order they should watch/read everything.

Tales of the Slayers* | Tales of the Vampires*
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Origin
Buffy the Vampire Slayer S1-3
Buffy the Vampire Slayer S4 | Angel: The Series S1
Buffy the Vampire Slayer S5 | Angel: The Series S2
Buffy the Vampire Slayer S6 | Angel: The Series S3
Buffy the Vampire Slayer S7 | Angel: The Series S4
Angel: The Series S5 | Willow: Goddesses and Monsters
Angel: After the Fall (#1-6)

Spike: A Dark PlaceWillow: Wonderland

Buffy the Vampire Slayer S10 | Angel & Faith S10
Fray††

* All stories in Tales of the Slayers take place prior to The Origin (except “Broken Bottle of Djinn” and “Tales”).  The framing storyline of Tales of the Vampires is set in the late 19th century, but the mini-stories take place throughout history.
Spike: A Dark Place spins out of Buffy S9 (#10) and ties into Angel & Faith (#18).  Willow: Wonderland spins out of Angel & Faith (#14) and leads into Buffy S9 (#20)
†† Takes place hundreds of years in the future.  Buffy S8 (#16-19) and “Tales” from Tales of the Slayers also take place during this time period.

This BUFFY marathon on SyFy is making me wonder why the network doesn’t air the show daily.

BUFFY marathon on SyFy today. Of course I tuned in when Willow is in the hospital at the end of season 2.

I got some hate mail for Willow being a lesbian, so I simply said: I realize I’m talking about a lifestyle that is embraced by less than 10% of America, and it’s not right to be shoving that down your throats. SO, Willow will no longer be a Jew. Joss Whedon

"A Hole in the World" (ANGEL 5.15) Trivia:

"Originally it was intended for Rupert Giles to appear in "A Hole in the World" and make it clear that there was no way to save Fred. After Anthony Stewart Head was unavailable, Drogyn and his inability to lie were created."
