Stay calm, the ‘Buffy’ cast just got a reunion

Obviously everyone remembers Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was one of the best shows of the 2000s, with the OG strong female character and a heroic cast.

Well grab yourself a fresh pair of underpants, because they’ve just had a pretty awesome reunion photoshoot.

Brought to us by Entertainment Weekly, the main cast of the show got together with creator and director Joss Whedon for a celebration of the show’s 20th anniversary.

As well as a few snaps of the whole gang, there are portraits of individual characters in various glorious (but not Glorificus *Buffy nerd laugh*) combinations.

It’s fair to say that a few of the cast members involved were kinda excited to be back together.

Predictably, the fan reaction came pouring in when the shoot broke. Equally predictably, that reaction was heartfelt and gleeful and definitely overexcited.

It’s pretty amazing that the show has carried such a loyal fanbase for this long, and it says a lot about just how good it was.

Joss Whedon, cult director turned Avengers maestro, also had some excited sentiment to share about the reunion and, in his typical way, praised his cast for ageing so well.

“For the most part, this is like a high school reunion but much worse because they all still look great,” he said. “I was hoping some of them would puff out a bit. But that did not take place.”

Now, I do have to dull the excitement to say that there is no spin-off or reunion special in the works for Buffy. I’m not crying, you are. Much as we’d all love to see it, we may have to accept that it’s not going to happen.

Guess there’s a two-day nostalgia binge in the making for a lot of people now.

However, there are a series of graphic novels set in the same universe coming to us, called Slayer, following one of the girls who was given slayer abilities in the show’s finale. So that’s something, right?

Happy 20th, Buffy. Keep on warming our hearts and slaying haters.
