The cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer have been celebrating their 20-year anniversary, and opened up about the possibility to returning to the smash hit show. The show's creator Joss Whedon hinted that he would like to make more episodes, explaining to EW: "Everything sort of finds its way back somewhere. I've been trying deliberately to move forward and do something a little bit different. But yeah, the great thing is everybody looks great, and the other great thing is the show is about growing up. If we did it with these guys, they'd be the age they basically are."

He added: "They’d probably play a little younger because they can do that. But yeah, you’d see somebody going through their life at a different stage. It wouldn't be like, 'I can't believe we're still in high school!'" James Marsters, who played Spike, added: "I think if Joss is helming it, then hell yeah. If not, then hell no," while Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) said: "I think the fans would just go crazy if something like that would happen. It would just make so many people happy." However, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Buffy, revealed that she would be concerned that it wouldn't live up to fans' high expectations.

"At a certain point, when things are magical, you don’t want to go back and Godfather III it—right?" she admitted. "I'm sure the fans are incredibly disappointed to hear that answer, but I think they’d be more disappointed if we created something and it didn't live up to the expectation because the expectation is so incredibly high. And I love that it can live in comic form and graphic novels. There are so many worlds it can live in." Willow actress Alyson Hannigan found a middle ground, saying: "I think we should do the Buffy cartoon."
