Alyson Hannigan joins the Scoobies for PaleyFest

on

Weep no more: The artist formerly known as Willow is confirmed for the

big Buffy the Vampire Slayer

reunion at PaleyFest next month. Alyson Hannigan will attend

the Buffy panel as part of the 25th annual event sponsored by The Paley

Center, formerly known as The Museum of Television & Radio. (Thanks

for the tip, AfterEllen.com reader
lookherecheers!)

Now officially confirmed along with Alyson for the March 20

reunion are series creator Joss Whedon, Sarah Michelle Gellar

(Buffy), Amber Benson (Tara), Nicholas

Brendon
(Xander), Emma Caulfield (Anya), Eliza Dushku

(Faith), Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia), Seth Green (Oz),

James Marsters
(Spike) and Michelle Trachtenberg (little Dawnie).

You know what this news means, right? Right? Yes, the Willow and Tara

reunion we’ve been dreaming

about for six years could still happen. I feel like lighting an extra

flamey candle to celebrate. Anyone else?

Alyson is one of the last Scoobies

to sign on. Former Buffy beau Angel (David

Boreanaz)
told TVGuide.com he has a family commitment that

day but will tape a special greeting for fans to air during the event.

So that leaves Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) as the lone core Scooby

holdout. No word yet on whether he’ll cross the pond for the occasion.

Since Buffy left the air

five years ago, Alyson has been on of its busiest former cast members.

For the last three seasons, she has been gainfully employed on the CBS

sitcom How I Met Your Mother. While the lesbian Wiccan lovers

quotient on the show is sadly lacking (so far, at least), it does boast

the hilarious Neil Patrick Harris (a gay man playing a ladies’

man), so that makes it fairly awesome in my book.

So, who here already has her ticket? And

will Miss Kitty Fantastico make an appearance?
