In honor of Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s 25th anniversary, it was announced that the iconic supernatural drama would be returning to cable syndication later this year! According to IndieWire, the series will return to cable on October 1 as part of the network’s “lineup of empowering content.”

Buffy is a special show that holds a place in many fans’ hearts because of its protagonist Buffy Summers, a vampire slayer who saved her town of Sunnyvale, and the world, on more than one occasion. It’s the series that made Sarah Michelle Gellar a household name and highlighted the talents of many other actors, such as David Boreanaz, Charisma Carpenter, James Marsden, Seth Green, Anthony Stewart Head and Alyson Hannigan.

Decades after its release, Buffy the Vampire Slayer remains an iconic series and a genuine classic that thousands of people revisit year after year. There are many shows that wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for this show setting a precedent for sci-fi and supernatural dramas.

Given that Buffy is a hot topic today especially because of the momentous anniversary, many are wondering if the series is available to watch on Netflix.
