Don't read it unless you've seen Angel's season finale and don't mind minor spoilers for next season, but the information is here. The information may also (or may not) be a spoiler for the end of Buffy S7.

David Boreanaz
James Marsters
Alexis Denisof
J. August Richards
Amy Acker
Andy Hallett

You'll note the absence of Charisma Carpenter (boo), the absence of Vincent Kartheiser (BOO!) and the presence of James Marsters (BOOO!!!!). If JM takes Alexis Denisof's 'And...as...' credit, blood will be spilt.
Joss Whedon is Executive Producer, Jeff Bell is co-exec, David Greenwalt is consulting producer, and Tim Minear is off working on Wonder Falls.
 
 
 
 
 
 
...where's the female cast??? That's a *lot* of testosterone, dontcha think?
What? You don't like slash? :P
...same sex, either way. However, I'm wondering whether the average US male viewer would be interested...
Over on T21, Callum was wondering who would be replacing Cordy as the female regular. So it looks like there isn't one, but maybe we get a recurring like Lorne was for most of the last couple of seasons?

My guess was Electro-Gwen for that, anyway.
And Lilah, presumably. So you've got your nerdy girl, your sexy girl, and your evil girl. All bases covered!
Oooh, yes we need more Lilah. Cool.

Can you not see? James Marsters is right there!

indeed, i shall go quite mental. JM can have charisma's second place and like it.
We could beat up JM, if necessary. Alexis has earned his 'and', dammit.
Waaah. the temptation was too much and i read this post despite not having seen the season finale. so I'm now very curious as to where certain characters disappear to. hmm. I might rant more about the lack of VK once I've seen the finale.
More of a spoiler, by WB, for the last episode of Buffy, not yet shown I would have said.
Fair point. Only trouble is, if I write 'this information implicitly spoils the end of Buffy S7 as well' in my post, then that in itself is something of a spoiler for the cast change. Probably not as serious, though, so I'll go and edit.
Surprised by no VK, I must say - didn't he say something at End of Days about maybe getting more interesting stuff 'next season'?

Also - I expect Gwen to return as a heavily recurring character, because the bosses must realize they've got a problem with the old gender weighting here.

'And James Marsters as Spike' ... ? BAH!! *Please* let this work ...


Well, Vincent's not back as a regular, unless something changes over the summer. Doesn't mean he won't be back as a recurring character.

As for gender weighting, hmm. It seems to me that no-one had a problem with Charisma being the only female regular for the first two seasons, yet they do with Amy. There, of course, two more male regulars now as well, but still.. I'd expect Lilah will be around, and possibly Gwen, although now she's got rid of her powers, what's she going to do?

Yes, but as you point out she wasn't quite as outnumbered as Amy will be now. And I guess recurring will be VK's role now ... although that may seem slightly weird. On balance, though, I'm hopeful. Spike and all. :P

IIRC someone asked him that and he said 'aha! You guys got to watch the finale. There's a... well there's a bit of a twist'. And everyone there cursed EoD for not being a week later.

If you've seen the finale, the recurring female slot is fairly obvious...
That's.... quite interesting.

Bit surprised there's no CC or VK but I do very much expect VK to recur in some role.

I'm quite intrigued to see how this is all going to play out, tbh.
