AngelWhedon Hopes for Sixth Season of Angel
Monday 2 February 2004, by Webmaster
Joss Whedon, creator and executive producer of The WB’s Angel, said that he feels the show could go beyond its current fifth season.
"I’ve never not thought that the show could carry on into a sixth or seventh year," Whedon said at the recent WB Winter Press event. "Last year there was some doubt as to whether we were coming back. This doubt was not something I was actually informed about. ...That was a bit of an eye opener.
"This has been a strong year for us. The response has been strong. The demos have been strong. We all feel really good. As for stories, I don’t think we’ll ever run out of stories to tell about these people. They’re constantly changing. They’re constantly shifting their alliances. And there’s so much to say on the subject. Any good show is ultimately about people and people are endlessly fascinating.
"It feels to me like the new energy could propel us into more seasons, and I very much hope it does. Because as a creative team, I never doubted we had enough stories to tell."
