Big changes are a-brewin' in the Buffyverse!
Season nine of Joss Whedon's Buffy the Vampire Slayer — a franchise oft-celebrated for empowering young women — will feature a new gay male character.
Buffy and her Scooby Gang were already ahead of the equality curve when compared to most other works from fiction but writer Jane Espenson knows there's more work to do!
After one film, seven years (and over a hundred episodes) of television, and a season and-a-half of comics, we're only now getting a taste of an openly gay male protagonist!!
Hooray for a slightly more accurate representation of real world demographics!!

Execs at The CW are clearly hardcore fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Supernatural already had Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters reunite (soo much sex in the sentence).
But now Ringer will see mini reunion number two! Whoo!
Sarah Michelle Gellar will get a surprise when Amber Benson (Willow's soulmate, Tara) makes an appearance as Agent Machado's stripper informant!
Ooooh, we can't wait to see what happens in that episode! Ringer's kept us intrigued so far, and it looks like they'll be doing that for a while!
Just don't start sucking within the next couple of episodes, please!
