Though he may have initially been worried about BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER's departure to UPN, J. August Richards sounds pretty upbeat about the upcoming third season of ANGEL.
While talking to SCIFI.COM, Richards spoke of his feelings on the whole situation as it unfolded, saying, "When the shows separated, it kind of sucked, because it was cool to have that block of time for the two shows that were related to each other, that had stories told across both shows and [that] complement each other and contrast each other. So we'll be missing out on that. On the other hand, it's OK, because we get to stand on our own and be our own show and not necessarily have the BUFFY lead-in. We have to be our own man, as they say."
