Sunnydale High School Reunion! Buffy the Vampire Slayer Cast Gets Together for Show’s 20th Anniversary

29 March 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

High school is a nightmare for many, but Buffy Summers had to battle evil forces and pass her midterms.

Twenty years after Buffy the Vampire Slayer hit the small screen, Entertainment Weekly rounded up the Scooby Gang for an all-star reunion. Although the cast members have graduated into new phases of life (there was some showing off photos of children and swapping of recipes at the gathering), star Sarah Michelle Gellar argues that high school was, indeed, hell.

“It’s the ultimate metaphor: horrors of adolescence manifesting through these actual monsters,” she shared. “It’s the hardest time of life. »

Newswire: We’re totally buggin’ over this Clueless comic book

17 March 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

The Valley Girl patois that ran through Clueless helped make Amy Heckerling’s 1995 film a teen classic. So the news that Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s Amber Benson—who’s no stranger to snappy dialogue that takes on a life of its own—is developing a comic book based on the film earns snaps from us. Vanity Fair reports Benson is working with Heroine Complex creator Sarah Kuhn on the latest title from Boom! Studios. Siobhan Keenan will draw the series with cover art from Natacha Bustos (Spider Woman).

Vanity Fair spoke with Benson and Kuhn about their comic as well as their love of all things Cher, Dionne and Tai (Amber might has well have been a virgin who can’t drive, guys). Benson did audition for the role of Tai, she tells Vf, which she ultimately lost to the late Brittany Murphy. Now she’s working on ...

Clueless returns in comic book form thanks to Boom! Studios

17 March 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Boom! Studios is set to explore the further adventures of Cher and her friends this summer with the launch of a brand new Clueless comic book from the writing duo of actress, filmmaker, and author Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Witches of Echo Park, Death’s Daughter) and author Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex, Barbie), along with artist Siobhan Keenan (Adventure Time).

“I was 17 when I auditioned for Clueless and, sadly, didn’t get a part,” recalls Benson. “But I remember reading the script—tentatively titled As If—and thinking: If they do this right, they are going to kick some serious butt. So I wasn’t shocked when Clueless turned out to be a pop-culture phenomenon. All these years later, I am tickled that I finally get to be a part of its continuing legacy, and that I get to collaborate with two people I respect greatly: my »

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Premiered 20 Years Ago Today (PicSpam)

10 March 2017 10:52 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

I'd sing, "Happy Birthday," but like the course of true love, Buffy birthdays never did run smooth, so this is decidedly an anniversary celebration, instead. Twenty years ago today, on Monday, March 10, 1997, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show premiered on the now defunct netlet, The WB. Television, and the internet too, have never been the same. Check out our epic BtVS picspam from the two part premiere episodes, "Welcome to the Hellmouth" and "The Harvest," (with a promo shot and bonus screencaps from later episodes, all courtesy of creator Joss Whedon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer starred Sarah Michelle Gellar in the title role. Over its seven seasons and 144 episodes, the cast also included: Anthony Head, Alyson Hannigan, Nicholas Brendon, Charisma Carpenter, David Boreanaz, Kristine Sutherland, Seth Green, Robia Lamorte, James Marsters, Emma Caulfield, Michelle Trachtenberg, Amber Benson, Seth Green, Marc »

Buffy at 20: Nicholas Brendon Recalls Xander's Speedo, Cops to Some Regrets ('I Was Just as Much to Blame')

10 March 2017 3:03 PM, PST | | See recent news »

To mark the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s series premiere, TVLine spoke to a few of its key players. Our final installment: star Nicholas Brendon.

If Buffy Summers was Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s strong arm and Willow Rosenberg was its brain, Xander Harris was its heart.

And as that heart — or the “scared guy with a rock,” as Xander calls himself in Season 2’s “Becoming” — portrayer Nicholas Brendon never wanted the character to have any special abilities, he tells TVLine.

Buffy at 20: Amber Benson Talks Tara's Tragic Fate (and a Nixed Return!)

10 March 2017 1:00 PM, PST | | See recent news »

To mark the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s series premiere, TVLine spoke to a few of its key players. Up next: star Amber Benson.

When Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon originally conceived the character of Tara Maclay, a witch he added in the supernatural drama’s fourth season, she didn’t look a lot like Amber Benson.

At least, that’s how Benson recalls it.

Buffy Summers started slaying on TV 20 years ago today. And to celebrate that, we thought we’d go to one of the people who put the quips in the heroine’s mouth.

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' at 20: How a Monster-Killing Teen Changed TV Forever

10 March 2017 6:26 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Dear female high school student: You have been chosen to fight the dark, never-ending forces of evil. You're likely to die young and alone, because you're supposed to keep your calling a secret. Sounds awesome, right? Oh, wait, you don't have a choice. Happy hunting!

Admittedly, it's a lousy sales pitch to give a perky blonde who just wants to make it through her midterms in one piece. But in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon's landmark television series, the girl in question doesn't exactly get »

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Turns 20: Look Back at the Classic Series’ Best Episodes!

10 March 2017 4:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Grrr arggg! Into every generation an excellent TV show is born: One show in all the world. The Chosen One.

It’s been 20 years since Buffy Summers, Mr. Pointy, The Bronze, and Giles’ always-smudged spectacles graced our small screens, and the world has never been the same (mostly because she saved it… a lot).

There were plenty of quips (“Out. For. A. Walk. B**ch.”), tears (Spike’s undying devotion, sob), and frights (bunnies, plus demons and stuff), but Buffy the Vampire Slayer was so much more than that.

The Joss Whedon masterpiece created several feminist icons, spoke to addiction struggles, portrayed the first lesbian sex scene on broadcast television, showed that vampires were sexy long before Twilight and made it ok to wear pink leather pants in public… well, sort of.

Whether you were Team Angel, Team Spike or kind of just wanted Giles and Joyce to get together, the show had »
