“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” gave viewers a world rich with witty, independent women, fantastic monsters, hellish high school sagas and so much more. It’s been 10 years since Joss Whedon’s TV masterpiece ended — May 20, 2003 was the last time a new episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” aired — and we still can’t get enough of the show.
It’s been 10 years since “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” ended its seven-year run on TV. I had the chance to ask series star Sarah Michelle Gellar about the show’s lasting legacy.
“Wait, wait. Hold on. Really?” she replied when The Huffington Post told her the 10th anniversary of the “Buffy” finale was upon us. “Wow. God, you just blew my mind.” Robin Williams, who accompanied Gellar on the red carpet said, “It’s kind of wonderful.”
“It is,” Gellar said. “I’m incredibly proud of that show — proud of everybody on it, of what we did … You can’t be prouder of that show. It still holds up in reruns and I’m blessed every day … I’ve been pretty lucky.”
