Buffy cast reuniting at PaleyFest

Buffy the Vampire Slayer may be approaching its fifth year off the air (has it been that long already?), but the gusto of its fans has done anything but fade to black.

Those fans who live in Southern California will be overjoyed to know this: The cast is reuniting for a special appearance at this year's William S. Paley Television Festival, according to Variety. The annual show celebrates all things television, and takes place this year from March 14-27 in Hollywood's famous Cinerama Dome.

The exact details of the Buffy reunion have not yet been disclosed. Other shows reportedly on tap for PaleyFest are Golden Globe-winner Mad Men, Chuck, Pushing Daisies, Gossip Girl, and Dancing With the Stars, as well as "An Evening with Judd Apatow," the man behind Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, as well as seminal (and underappreciated) shows Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared.

The full lineup of events will be posted on the festival's Web Site on February 4, with tickets going on sale on February 7 for members and February 10 for nonmembers.

Buffy fans, who do you hope will show up, and who do you think will show up?

Most of BTVS's stars go to these sorts of things. Theres a similar sort of thing in the UK at MK and lots of the cast have been to it.



Anthony Stewart Head has been 5 times and is making his 6th appearance this year.

Nicholas Brendon has been twice

Juliet Landau

Charisma Carpenter

George Hertzberg (Adam)

James Marsters Adam Busch (Warren)

Danny Strong (Jonathan)

Adam Busch (Andrew)

Alexis Denisof (Wesley)

Kali Rocha (Halfrek)

Amber Benson (Tara)

Iyari Limon (Kennedy)

Armin Shimmerman (Principal Snyder) Even Xander's double has been to it. The only main ones who haven't are Angel, Riley, Buffy, Willow and Dawn. (Though you can't really blame them for not travelling so far just to meet the fans at some meet-and-greet thing). But I reckon if so many of the cast have been over here for it, there should be a fair few that show up in CA in March. =)



Buffy, Tara, Xander, Anya, Faith, Dawn, Oz and Spike have confirmed that they'll be making an appearance anyways.

No sign of Willow? =(

SMG seems to be changing her attitude, from things I've read recently. Her current film opportunities are apparently something of a disappointment to her, so she might well return to TV. She has reportedly been putting out feelers lately, so her appearance at Paleyfest isn't at all out of the question. It's been long enough since BTVS ended that she might be getting nostalgic for what were, after all, her glory days. Reminding the TV industry of her crowning accomplishment might be the best career move she could make right now.

I could see any of the cast showing up, except SMG. I've been disappointed in her attempts to distance herself from the show that basically made her a star. As much as I liked her as Buffy, I've never gone out of my way to see her in anything since. I think one reason her career hasn't been all that stellar since leaving Buffy is because of her negative attitude towards the show and the fans. Had she been gracious, say...like Jennifer Garner has always been about Alias and its fans, I think she'd be doing much better now. And yes, I DO go out of my way to support Garner's movies. :)

I gotta jump on and defend SMG here. She loved Buffy and, yeah, she might not show (although she IS in New York at the moment and only a cheap flight away *cough* Sarah *cough*), but let's face it - the show has been off the air for five years almost and she has a really good career going, so why would she wanna do the whole Buffy press junket again? All of you bitter fans who cant stand Sarah need to get over yerself. You all moan about her not possibly showing up and yet I'd bet she wasnt even yer fav character, anyways. So why bother?!!:roll:

I'm just happy to see Buffy...I mean, er, Sarah (:P) anywhere i can, either through repeats or new films. Just pisses me off when people bemoan Sarah's lack of commitment to a dead project that expired five years agao and yet if Alyson didnt show fans would prob excuse that fact cause she's a saint or whatever.

'Fraid not. The only reason these actors are doing it right now is due to the writers strike. They have time. Sarah, on the otherhand, is doiung the new Alice film.

I love the entire cast of Buffy, but just back off SMG. :P

Cool...maybe just maybe they can talk about doing a tv movie,mini series or reunion show

Big woopdyfreekindoo. The only thing that would be good about the cast getting back together would be if it was in a movie or mini-series. But in a local event? Albeit a rather large event, from what i gather, but local event just the same.

I assume that Joss Whedon will also make an appearance.

Wow, I'd love to see the whole cast reunited but as others have said I doubt everyone will be able to make it for various reasons.

SMG got kinda snobby about the show so I would be surprised if she shows. Nicholas Brendan, Alyson Hannigan, James Marsters, Michelle Tractenberg will probably show. Hopefully David Boreanaz will show and ASH that would be great, Seth Green too.

I think nearly every main (inc. Dushku and Benson) will definitely appear, but the following I'm not sure if they will be 100%: SMG, Anthony Stewart Head, David Boreanaz and Seth Green. Only because they all are working on things at the moment. I find it funny that no one has mentioned Marc Blucas (Riley) yet :P.

It would be great to see the entire cast there! But I'm guessing it'll be Nicholas Brendan, Alyson Hannigan, Emma Caulfield, Michelle Trachtenburg, Tom Lenk, and of course it would be great if Amber Benson showed up.

Ok Tim, this is an easy one. Who do I hope shows up? Everybody! The entire regular cast and recurring cast. Who do I think will show up? The usual suspects, including Nicholas Brendan, Alyson Hannigan, James Marsters, Emma Caulfield, and Michelle Trachtenburg. Sarah Michelle Gellar has never been that available to that fans, so I doubt if she'll make an appearance. David Boreanaz would be a great surprise, but I doubt Anthony Stewart Head will make the trek from the UK. I'd love to see Seth Green there.
