A term applied to the canon of TV creator and filmmaker Joss Whedon: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel the Series, Firefly, Serenity, and others. It is frequently used when referring to fanworks created within these universes: "My current fandoms are all in the Jossverse."

Jossverse RPF refers to RPF about actors and creators in the Jossverse, not the characters themselves.

The extended Jossverse

There are several different comics series that are technically part of the Jossverse. Some, like Tales of the Slayers and Fray, describe the adventures of Slayers either in the past or the future.

Others feature familiar canon characters, and are supposed to take place in between aired episodes, like a missing scene.

Others are more like prequels or sequels, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight, Serenity: Better Days, or Angel: After the Fall.

Although technically part of the Jossverse, many fans personally consider them non-canon.
