‘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.

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,

‘Surviving Evil’ Renewed for Second Season by ID

“Surviving Evil” has survived its freshman run.

Investigation Discovery’s hit series has been picked up for a second season, the cabler announced today. 10-episode second run will begin filming within the next few months.

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” alum Charisma Carpenter will return to host the show, which examines real-life crime stories of men and women who fought back against their attackers. Survivors recount their tales of heroism in their own words.

“‘Surviving Evil’ is relevant and powerful to me, because it offers the rare opportunity to not only show amazing human acts of courage and survival against all odds but to empower our viewers to take charge of their personal safety,” Carpenter said.

The show was ID’s highest-rated series during the third quarter of 2013 among adults and women 25-54. “Surviving Evil”s August 2013 debut ranked ninth in its time slot among cable-supported nets.
