“Cruel Intentions” nostalgia might be floating around everywhere thanks to the reboot, but don’t expect Sarah Michelle Gellar to forget her other iconic ’90s role.
Thursday (March 10) marks the 19th anniversary of the premiere of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and Gellar seems just as in love with the show as ever.
In a tribute post to the anniversary, Gellar shared a photo of herself from the early days of Buffy, complete with the hairstyle and fashion the ’90s were so well known for.
“19 years ago tonight, I got to introduce you to #buffyannesummers (and #mrpointy too) thank you for taking the incredible journey with me and continuing still. I am and forever will be #grateful,” Gellar writes.
Buffy was an iconic female character, skillfully maintaining the balance between empowered and innocent, charming and flawed. While the show could be silly at times, it also managed to be a dark horror story when it needed to be.
Back in the days where vampires on TV spent more time murdering innocent high school students than making out with them, “Buffy” was beloved by its cult following, earning a full seven seasons before it was cancelled. Its spinoff, “Angel: The Series,” followed it to cancellation a year later.
Now that reboots and revivals are all the rage, how many bribes do you think it would take to get “Buffy” back on the air?
