It’s hard to believe Buffy The Vampire Slayer ended 20 years ago! There were rumors of a new Buffy series for a while, but it was Chris Golden and Amber Benson that finally developed the Audible Podcast series taking place in the Buffyverse. Featuring a new slayer in Laya DeLeon Hayes and lots of returning characters – Charisma Carpenter, James C. Leary, James Marsters, Juliet Landau, and Emma Caulfield – who were all in attendance. Anthony Head even reprises Giles, but missed the panel.
An interesting point, podcasts are not onscreen and as a result not subject to the Screen Actor’s Strike. As a result, this was a great panel were the cast could actually take about the project! Hayes plays a new 16 year old slayer. Cordelia is a seasoned slayer who takes Hayes under her wing. Drusilla is still evil, tempting Spike to the dark-side.
It’s amazing how good this cast looks. Shame it is just a podcast!
Plenty of photos to see, all taken with the Canon R7 and the Canon RF 70-200mm lens.
