It’s been over 20 years since we said goodbye to one of the most defining series of the 90s/2000s Buffy the Vampire Slayer and yet fans still want more!

While a new version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was said to be in development (announced originally in 2018) it was later revealed in 2022 that the project’s was put ‘on pause’ and since then we haven’t heard anything.

But it seems that a new Buffy the Vampire Slayer series is in the works in a completely new way!

The series followed the exploits of the titular heroine, Buffy Summers (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar), a young girl who, as the generation’s chosen slayer, must fight vampires, demons, and other supernatural foes. The “Scooby Gang”—a group of devoted friends who support Buffy—includes Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head), Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendan). 

The series ran for 7 series and captured the hearts of fans across the world who loved tuning in weekly to see what evil monsters Buffy and the ‘Scooby Gang’ would be facing.

Since the show finished the series has continued as a comic book series and now Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Audible are creating a new adventure with some of the old cast returning!

James Marsters reprises his role as Spike in Slayers: A Buffyverse Story, an audio original by Audible that takes place 20 years after the series finale and stars Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Head, Juliet Landau, Emma Caulfield, Amber Benson, James Charles Leary, Danny Strong, as well as Laya DeLeon Hayes, a brand-new character.

Audible took to their Instagram page to release the exciting news to fans.

Entertainment Weekly describe the story as:
The Slayers story begins as Spike has gone deep undercover in Los Angeles, convincing the forces of darkness that he’s back to his evil ways. But when his cover is compromised by 16-year-old Indira Nunnally (Hayes), Spike finds himself on baby-slayer-sitting duty once more. While he attempts to track down a watcher for his eager new protégé, their paths collide with the veteran Slayer of a parallel reality where Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) never existed, and Cordelia Chase (Carpenter) is the one-and-only Slayer. And Cordelia needs Spike’s help with a classic big bad terrorizing her world… his old flame, Drusilla (Landau)

He told Entertainment Weekly:

I’m ecstatic to be back with my dear friends for this next chapter in the Buffyverse, as we take listeners on a familiar but unexpected journey chock full of horror, passion and mischief,” Marsters says. “I’m excited for old and new fans to experience this beloved world of vampire slaying like never before, brought to life through immersive audio storytelling

Although the main slayer herself Sarah Michelle Gellar hasn’t been mentioned in the project we can only hope that she will return in later stories if this audible experiment works out! We can’t wait to return to the Buffy world to see exactly what’s been happening to all of our favourite characters both good…and evil!
