Slayers: A Buffyverse Story is an audio series and spin-off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was written by Christopher Golden with Amber Benson and directed by Benson, Golden, and Kc Wayland. It was originally released on October 12, 2023, on Audible.

Synopsis[]

Original cast members from the beloved TV series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, reunite for an all-new adventure about connections that never die — even if you bury them.

A decade has passed since the epic final battle that concluded Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV). The game-changing spell that gave power to all potential Slayers persists. With new Slayers constantly emerging, things are looking grim for the bad guys. Rebellious vampire Spike (James Marsters) is working undercover in Los Angeles with his old pal Clem (James Charles Leary) when he meets feisty, rookie Slayer, Indira (Laya DeLeon Hayes), who wants Spike to be her mentor. Stakes intensify as Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter) emerges from an alternate reality where she alone is the Slayer, and Buffy Summers doesn't exist. Cordelia enlists Spike's help with a classic big bad terrorizing her world… his ex, Drusilla (Juliet Landau). Giles (Anthony Head), Anya (Emma Caulfield Ford), Jonathan (Danny Strong), and Tara (Amber Benson) also return, but through the years and the vastness of the multiverse, not everyone is who they used to be…[1]

Continuity[]

The series is established as taking place "a dozen years" after the events of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series finale "Chosen" and, therefore, three years after the canonical conclusion of the Buffyverse in the comic story Finale. Slayers is not confirmed as canon, but its story does not contradict the canon continuity.

Amber Benson has already talked about an interest in doing a second season for the series:[2]

"If we do multiple seasons, then we can bring in other people and give them new things to do. Seth [Green] is definitely on our list. Clare Kramer too, we would love to have Glory come and play. There's just so many amazing characters to bring in... I would love to do more seasons. Emma Caulfield was like, 'When do we do the next one?' We really would love to do more."

However, in February 2024, Christopher Golden announced its cancelation: "Despite its enormous success, Disney [who owns 20th Century Studios and the rights to Buffy] has refused to allow Audible to proceed with future seasons of Slayers: A Buffyverse Story. To my knowledge, they have provided no explanation."[3]

Cast[]

On the absence of Buffy and Sarah Michelle Gellar, Golden explained: "We wouldn't want to recast Buffy and SMG has been clear about not wanting to play her again. So while Buffy is discussed in our series, she does not appear."[4]
