The series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is iconic, introducing unforgettable characters and stories over its seven seasons and 144 episodes. After so many years, it comes as a complete shock that the cast is reuniting for a new spin-off.
The band is getting back together for a new Audible Original series, Slayers: A Buffyverse Story, with stars like Charisma Carpenter, who played Cordelia, James Marsters, who starred as the vampire Spike, and Anthony Head, who played Rupert, all returning to the Buffy Universe for the project which picks up ten years after the original series finale. Returning cast members include Juliet Landau, Emma Caulfield, Amber Benson, James Charles Leary, and Danny Strong, along with new cast members such as Laya DeLeon Hayes.
The audio original was written by original cast member Amber Benson (Tara) alongside writer Christopher Golden. The series is directed by Benson, Golden, and Kc Wayland.
“The upcoming scripted audio original picks up ten years after the events of the final episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Since then, Spike (James Marsters) has gone deep undercover in Los Angeles, convincing the forces of darkness that he’s back to his evil ways. When his cover is compromised by sixteen-year-old Indira Nunnally (Laya DeLeon Hayes), Spike finds himself on baby-slayer-sitting duty once more. While he attempts to track down a watcher for his eager new protege, their paths collide with the veteran Slayer of a parallel reality where Buffy Summers never existed…a reality where Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter) is the one-and-only Slayer. She needs Spike’s help with a classic big bad terrorizing her world…his old flame, Drusilla (Juliet Landau).”
