Just in time for spooky season, Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans have something new to look forward to.

Original cast members James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Head, Juliet Landau, Emma Caulfield, Amber Benson, James Charles Leary, and Danny Strong, are reuniting for a new Audible series, Slayers: A Buffyverse Story.

Slayers: A Buffyverse Story is an audio original set 10 years after the series finale. It was written by original cast member Amber Benson alongside writer Christopher Golden, and directed by Benson, Golden, and Kc Wayland.

The series centers on Spike, who has gone deep undercover in Los Angeles, convincing the forces of darkness that he’s back to his evil ways. But when his cover is compromised by 16-year-old Indira Nunnally (newcomer Laya DeLeon Hayes), Spike finds himself on baby-slayer-sitting duty once more.

While he attempts to track down a watcher for his eager new protégé, their paths collide with the veteran Slayer of a parallel reality where Buffy Summers never existed. Instead, Cordelia Chase is the one-and-only Slayer.

And of course, there must be a big bad. In this story, it’s Spike’s old flame, Drusilla.

“I’m ecstatic to be back with my dear friends for this next chapter in the Buffyverse, as we take listeners on a familiar but unexpected journey chock full of horror, passion and mischief,” Marsters stated. “I’m excited for old and new fans to experience this beloved world of vampire slaying like never before, brought to life through immersive audio storytelling.”

Per TV Line, Slayers: A Buffyverse Story was written/produced before the WGA and SAG-AFTRA Strikes took effect. However, audiobooks and podcasts are not impacted by the strikes.
