The Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast is one of the biggest fan-favorite ensembles in the history of modern TV, and it's likely that the show's fandom will forever call for official TV reunions and revivals. Though that may never happen, most of the principal cast DID reunite this past weekend at Wizard World Portland. Check out Charisma Carpenter's pic of the eleven-member strong reunion below.
On Sunday afternoon, Wizard World's Portland con played host to this reunion for some of Sunnydale High School's most elite students, among others. Unfortunately, the two big stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz were not on hand for the weekend reunion, but they were some of the only show vets that were absent.
Let's namecheck everybody who was there. We obviously have the actress who shared the pic, Charisma Carpenter, who played the conflictual Cordelia, a character that left the flagship series after Season 4. We also have the actress who starred as Buffy's bestie Willow Rosenberg, Alyson Hannigan, who recently appeared in the live-action Kim Possible TV movie on Disney. Fans could also see Amber Benson, who played Willow's love interest Tara Maclay, as well as Hannigan's real-life husband Alexis Denisof, who appeared on the show as ally Wesley Wyndam-Pryce.
Naturally, Spike was also on hand, or at least actor James Marsters was. The current Marvel's Runaways star got caught in the middle of a smooch sandwich between his former co-stars.
Not that the list ends there. Wizard World spectators also got to see Nicholas "Xander Harris" Brendon on the stage, along with Dexter vet Julie "Darla" Benz, The Gifted star Amy "Angel's Winifred Burkle" Acker, James "Clem" Leary, Clare "Glory" Kramer, and Iyari "Kennedy" Limon.
Even Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon got in on the fun. Though it sadly was not on-site in Portland, but rather on Twitter.
Will this west coast reunion be enough to bring all of the original stars of Buffy and Angel back for more? Well, we know the concept is getting a reboot of sorts, which might actually be a continuation, and that several of the stars are interested to see what happens with it. (Most want Joss back on board, to be expected.)
However, no one should ever put any money on original stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz returning in full for any new Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV shows. They've both backed away from any involvement, although Boreanaz did have some kind words to say about it in general.
Plus, Gellar and Boreanaz DID reunite just a couple of weeks ago, sharing a pic of the meet-up on social media.
For now, we know we're not getting a new Buffy show filling out the midseason schedule, but perhaps the future will give fans something more concrete to look forward to.
