Following the conclusion of hit TV series Buffy The Vampire Slayer (1997 - 2003) starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, plans were underway to produce a spin-off show called Faith The Vampire Slayer.
OH. SO WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED?
The series would have seen actress Eliza Dushku reprise the role of superhero vampire slayer Faith, who had originated on Buffy The Vampire Slayer and later migrated to spin-off show Angel (1999 - 2004). Faith had been a misguided vampire slayer who had gone to prison in Angel but had escaped to take part in the events of the final season of Buffy. The proposed show would have picked up Faith's story following the conclusion of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, with Faith on the run from the authorities.
BUT WHAT DID HAPPEN?
Despite much speculation (mostly from fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer) the series never really moved beyond the ideas stage. The concept for the show was pitched to Dushku but after much consideration the actress decided against taking part, feeling that the show would have struggled in the mighty shadow of the then recently concluded Buffy series. Dushku instead starred in the short-lived Tru Calling (2003 - 2005). Certain elements of the show were later adapted into Buffy spin-off comic, Buffy: Season 8 and Faith The Vampire Slayer remained as one of a number of unproduced Buffy spin-offs, like Buffy: The Animated Series and Slayer School.
WAS THIS SUCH A BAD THING? No, not at all. Faith was an extremely popular character, but her spiritual journey had already been concluded across both Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel and so it's hard to imagine where else a solo show could have gone. Dushku made the right decision not to take part and without her producers made the right decision not to run with a similar show. Although Dushku's next shows Tru Calling and Dollhouse (2009 - 2010) never really took off, at least she concluded her time on both Buffy shows without letting her character become tired.
BUT WHAT IF? If Faith The Vampire Slayer had been put into production... it would have been shit; so let's just leave it at that.
