Inside Move: ‘Buffy’ losing star’s bite

Possibility of another spinoff still to be decided

Put a stake in her: Sarah Michelle Gellar’s done with “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”

Thesp has confirmed to producer Joss Whedon something most industry insiders have assumed for months — namely, that this season will be her last with the UPN skein, according to insiders connected to the show.

Her departure also likely means “Buffy,” at least in its current incarnation, will wrap in May, something that’s also not much of a shocker, given the show’s apocalyptic storylines this season.

Still to be decided: whether Whedon, 20th and UPN will proceed with a new “Buffy” spinoff, or whether the franchise will simply end. WB Entertainment prexy Jordan Levin said Tuesday he’s hopeful but not certain that “Angel,” a “Buffy” spinoff launched in 1999, will be back next fall.
