Well, we've finally got confirmation of all the recent rumours. In an interview in the new Entertainment Weekly, Sarah Michelle Gellar has confirmed that she will be leaving Buffy the Vampire Slayer at the end of the current season.
Still no firm news on the future of the show, but the recent rumours of Faith taking over the main role seem less likely as Eliza Dushka has apparently signed up for a major role in a new series.
As always, keep up with the latest on Whedonesque.
Oh, and that interview contains spoilers for the end of season 7.
