Getting The Gang Back Together
♦Hard to believe that has been twenty years since Sarah Michelle Gellar and co took the TV world by storm in Joss Whedon’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer. To commemorate this, EW has given the reunited cast this week’s cover…
This is what EW had to say about Buffy:
Into every generation a Slayer is born and, with her, a TV series that pierces pop culture like a stake through the heart. Over the course of its seven-season run (all of which are now available on Hulu), Buffy the Vampire Slayer garnered one of the most loyal fandoms in television history, thanks to its unlikely but oddly seamless blend of genres (horror! comedy! teen soap! tragedy! musical?!?) and one of the most unique heroines ever seen on screen.
The series followed bloodsucker-hunter Buffy Summers as she navigated the horrors of Sunnydale High, both real (being the new kid, finding a date to the prom) and supernatural (snake monsters, hyena people). “It’s the ultimate metaphor: horrors of adolescence manifesting through these actual monsters,” says star Sarah Michelle Gellar. “It’s the hardest time of life.”
