Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Where Are They Now?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer has established itself in the pop culture zeitgeist as a fundamental television experience. The seven-season phenomenon first aired on our screens in 1997; since then it’s become a firm fan favorite and one of the most important and influential touchstones for an entire generation of geeks. At this point, it feels like the entire nerd community is split between those who have watched Buffy and those who want to.

‘Buffy’ 20th Anniversary: Where Is The Cast Now?

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is turning 20! The fantasy show, which premiered on March 10, 1997, broke boundaries as it mixed genres, focused on female heroes and introduced the wolrld to Joss Whedon’s amazing dialogue. It still influences dramas today like “Jessica Jones” and “The Vampire Diaries,” so it’s definitely a show worth remembering. Though “Buffy” has been off the airwaves since 2003, the cast members haven’t. This is where the actors are now:

Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy): The only thing Gellar is slaying these days is baking recipes. The mother of two started Foodstirs, a company that specializes in “clean” baking mixes. She also wrote the cookbook “Stirring up Fun with Food,” which will come out April 4.

The Buffy Summers actress is still working onscreen too, but she hasn’t had quite the same luck she had with “BtVS.” “Ringer” and “The Crazy Ones” both lasted just a season each,
