"Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve: The Reckoning" is a comic book miniseries from Dark Horse Comics. Joss Whedon is the executive producer.

Premise

Following the world-altering finale of Season 11, Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they’ve learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long. When Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with — Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future — Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers, forever.

This action-packed miniseries reunites the Buffyverse with the return of Angel, Faith, Illyria, and Fray, the Slayer from the future![1]

The Reckoning "The Reckoning" 1–4 December 24, 2018
Writers: Christos Gage & Joss Whedon Artist: Georges Jeanty
The lives of Buffy and the Scoobies haven’t been too eventful for a while — at least as far as fighting demons and the forces of darkness are concerned. But that all changes when Angel brings news of an amassing a force that must be reckoned with: Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, vampire from the future. Buffy knows Harth and his twin sister — the Slayer, Fray — from her meeting with them and Dark Willow in the future. But this army that has been gathered is more than she and her crew were expecting… Narrowly escaping an initial encounter, the gang travels to the future to recruit Fray and learn of their dismal fate should they fail to defeat this legion that has invaded the present. Harth is after the power of the Slayers, and being in possession of all their memories, he knows how to rewrite the outcome of this ultimate battle before it occurs. This is the reckoning… and it could be the end of Buffy, Fray, and all the Slayers, forever.
