Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Nine is the sequel to the Season Eight comic book series, a canonical continuation of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The Season Nine brand also incorporates a new Buffy spin-off series, Angel & Faith, which like the main series will last 25 issues (roughly two years). While Whedon shares writing duties with Andrew Chambliss on the main series, Christos Gage writes Angel & Faith. At the start of Season Nine, the series focuses on Buffy living in San Francisco in a world without magic. Angel & Faith, on the other hand, is set primarily in London and pursues several plot threads from Season Eight. Spin-off titles falling under the Season Nine banner include the five-issue series Willow: Wonderland and Spike: A Dark Place. Both series were followed in 2014 by the start of a Season Ten line of Buffy and Angel & Faith comics.
