Cities & Towns

Sunnydale - Vampire ridden town (pop. 38,500) on the horror adventure BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER/WB/UPN/1997-2003. Sunnydale ("a one Starbucks town") rests on the center of a mystical convergence called "Hellmouth," which is a portal between this reality and the next. The Hellmouth is a magnet for all sorts of supernatural creatures.

In an attempt to conquer this world, an evil demon called The Master (Mark Metcalf) tried to open the portal and destroy the world of the humans. Fortunately, his plans were foiled by Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar), a beautiful teenage vampire slayer who with the assistance of her Librarian mentor, Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) and her high school friends (aka "The Scooby Gang/Slayerettes"), keeps the demons roaming the town of Sunnydale at bay.

Besides the demons, Sunnydale contained a high school, a mall, a miniature golf course, some 43 churches, 2 costume shops, an ice cream parlor, ice skating rink, Slick Willy's bar, an art gallery (owned by Buffy's mom), a history museum, a huge cemetery, docks, a bus station, a National Guard Base, and a hospital to handle the town's extremely large body count.

On the series finale in May 2003, the town of Sunnydale (founded 1909) and the Hellmouth that resided beneath were destroyed in an apocryphal battle between good and evil. All that remains of Sunnydale is a hole in the ground. Buffy Summers and her friends escaped the destruction just in the nick of time by snagging a ride on a fleeing school bus.

TRIVIA NOTE: The high school used as Sunnydale High on the series is actually the Torrance High School located in Torrance, California.
