Time has been very kind to 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' a show whose cult of rabid fans has grown steadily as the profile of its creator, Joss Whedon, has gotten larger. Blending fantasy, horror, adventure and comedy into one witty and weighty package, the saga of Buffy Summers is one of television's greatest accomplishments, a show with such incredible highs that it makes most serialized storytelling look downright stagnant
Sarah Michelle Gellar
After suffering a humiliating defeat with freshman comedy 'We Are Men,' CBS has taken a big leap forward with its other fall 2013 efforts. The network has given full-season orders to the Robin Williams- and Sarah Michelle Gellar-starring 'The Crazy Ones,' as well as Anna Faris-Chuck Lorre comedy 'Mom,' and the oft-maligned Will Arnett vehicle 'The Millers,' each of which rank as the most-watched new comedies of the season.
'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star and all-around icon Sarah Michelle Gellar will return to TV once again this fall with CBS' forthcoming Robin Williams comedy 'The Crazy Ones,' thought naturally diehard 'Buffy' fans keep hope alive for a return to the Joss Whedon-helmed franchise. Beloved cult classic 'Veronica Mars' finally had its movie brought to life via Kickstarter, so what does SMG have to say about future 'BtVS' movie prospects?
As you may have noticed, this is the week of Upfront presentations and today it's CBS who offered a peek at their fall 2013-2014 lineup. We're certainly inclined to check out Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar's single-camera 'The Crazy Ones,' as well as Chuck Lorre's latest show 'Mom,' Will Arnett's 'The Millers' and new dramas 'Hostages' and 'Intelligence,' so preview the newest offerings inside!
Just when you thought TV news might have stopped for the day, we're back again! CBS has issued their full list of new series pickups, very few of them any real surprise, but exciting nonetheless. In addition to Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams' TV return 'Crazy Ones,' the eye has picked up Will Arnett's post 'Up All Night' sitcom, Chuck Lorre's 'Mom,' along with several new drama pilots, so get the inside scoop on CBS new lineup inside!
CBS is going to have a tight window for new series this season given the 18 already renewed in the last few weeks. One of the pilots we hope to see more from is Sarah Michelle Gellar's first post-'Ringer' series with Robin Williams, 'The Crazy Ones,' in production now. The premise certainly has us intrigued, but what does the first photo reveal?
Did a CBS sitcom just become our new favorite comedy pick of pilot season? You betcha! Having previously cast comic legend Robin Williams, CBS pilot 'Crazy Ones' has made yet another terrific addition: former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star Sarah Michelle Gellar! Following the demise of The CW's 'Ringer,' Gellar will once again return to TV for the David E. Kelley single-camera comedy, taking the role of Williams' character's daughter, but will it be any good? Get the inside scoop on 'Crazy Ones' with SMG inside!
Okay, so former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star Sarah Michelle Gellar's big return to TV with The CW's 'Ringer' didn't exactly work out, but you can't keep a good slayer down. No, it's not that 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' animated series we'd heard about, or even a guest spot under Joss Whedon on ABC's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, but rather Sarah Michelle Gellar is reportedly returning to TV in another starring vehicle. Find out the details of SMG's new venture inside!
She hasn't been around much these days, but we'll always love Sarah Michelle Gellar and the show that made her a star, 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer.' In today's Way Back When, we dig way, way back to bring you a peek at Gellar's pre-'Buffy' career.
Like any sane TV viewer and avid 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' fan, we were overjoyed to learn that Sarah Michelle Gellar was returning to the network that made her famous, even if it was a more female-skewing soap opera series in 'Ringer.' So while not altogether surprising - given its critical reception and impressively low ratings - part of us still died inside to see the chosen one cancelled off the network this past week. Still, might Gellar have a different future at the network?
