The combined logos for Buffy and Angel.

The Buffyverse refers to the shared fictional universe in which the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel are set. This term, originally coined by fans, has since been used even in the titles of published works,[1][2][3][4] and adopted by Joss Whedon,[5][6] the creator of the fictional universe. The Buffyverse has been expanded in licensed comics, novels, and games, although not always contributing to the canon history.

The term Angelverse is used in reference to a fraction of the Buffyverse, referring to the content pertinent to the spin-off series Angel and its separate license.[7][8][9][10]

Similarly, the term Whedonverse is often used to refer collectively to Joss Whedon's works.[11][12][13][14] However, his other productions such as Firefly (2002–2003), Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008), Dollhouse (2009–2010), The Cabin in the Woods (2012), and The Nevers (2021-2023) do not share a universe with the Buffyverse.
