Knowledge Is Power

What the heck is watchers? 

Watchers began as a spin-off to Buffy: The Vampire Slayer before Buffy ever ended in May 2003, making it one of the longest running virtual series in the fandom since Watchers ran for 5 seasons. We had our premise of Giles and Willow rebuilding the Watchers Council in Cleveland, minus Buffy since it was a ‘spin-off’. Over time, Buffy does arrive in the Watchersverse, but be warned. She was never meant to play an overshadowing role in the series. Watchers was never meant to be Buffy:TVS Season Eight, so she doesn’t take center stage here (although she does appear, because let’s be real… you can’t have apocalypses without Buffy after all, right?) Lucky for us, everyone we planned to include in Watchers did survived the final episode and we premiered in Sept. 2003 with a minimum of 24 episodes a season that ran until our final episode in Oct. 2008…
