Buffy fans rejoice: The Scooby Gang is (almost) all here


The Scoobie Gang is getting

back together. On March 20, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer

cast will reunite for a panel discussion as part of the annual Paley Center for

Media Festival

in Los Angeles. Feel free to scream with delight. I’ll wait.

Confirmed to appear so far

are series creator Joss Whedon ,

along with Buffy herself Sarah Michelle Gellar and almost all

the past Scoobies: Amber Benson (Tara), Nicholas Brendon

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

Seth Green (Oz), James Marsters

(Spike) and Michelle Trachtenberg (little Dawnie). The reunion

is part of the 25th annual PaleyFest, an interactive pop

culture event that connects fans with the creators and stars of their

favorite TV shows. The event is sponsored by The Paley Center (formerly known as The

Museum of Television & Radio).


Sarah’s decision to attend

is particularly noteworthy. In the past, the series star has shunned

almost all Buffy-related events, celebrations, conventions and the like.

Now, five years after the show left the air, she is apparently finally

ready to relive the good old slays with the rest of the gang.

Of course, I know what you’re

thinking right now. But, wait, how can you call this a reunion? No

Alyson Hannigan
! No Anthony Stewart Head or David Boreanaz

or Charisma Carpenter! Seriously, no Alyson! Relax. The festival

schedule says that additional panelists are yet to be announced.

So take heart. The Willow and Tara reunion we’ve been dreaming about

for six years could still happen. Anyone know any good must-go-to-reunion

spells we could cast on Alyson, just in case?
