The Hellmouth is reopening and the Scoobies are back! Multiple stars of Buffy the Vampire Slayer are reuniting for Slayers: A Buffyverse Story, an Audible audio adventure with Spike as the central hero.
The audio story is set 20 years after the series finale with James Marsters back as Spike, the vampire with a soul. It also features the returns of Charisma Carpenter as spoiled girl turned demon fighter Cordelia Chase, Anthony Stewart Head as Watcher Rupert Giles, Emma Caulfield as the vengeance demon Anya, Amber Benson as the witch Tara Maclay, Juliet Landau as the crazy vampire and Spike’s ex-girlfriend Drusilla, Danny Strong as high school geek turned villain Jonathan, and James Charles Leary as Spike’s buddy and demon Clem. Newcomer Laya DeLeon Hayes rounds out the voice cast.
The Slayers audio adventure starts with Spike undercover in Los Angeles trying to convince fellow demons that he is back to being William the Bloody. But his cover gets blown by newly called Slayer Indira Nunnally (Hayes), so he tries to find a Watcher for the teenager. What he finds is a parallel reality where Buffy Summers doesn’t exist, and Cordelia has always been the Slayer. Cordy in turn needs Spike’s help stopping the big bad she’s facing – who happens to be his ex, Drusilla.
Slayers: A Buffyverse Story is written by Benson (who has spent much of her post-Buffy career writing novels and TV series) and Christopher Golden (who has written multiple Buffy novelizations). Benson, Golden, and Kc Wayland directed the audio adventure.
It debuts on October 12, 2023.
