20 “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”-themed items you need to get for the show’s 20th anniversary
What better way to celebrate 20 years of Buffy The Vampire Slayer than with all the merch we can get our mortal hands on? It is hard to believe that two decades have passed since Buffy Anne Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) transferred to Sunnydale High School from Los Angeles. Premiering on March 10th, 1997, the series of trials and tribulations over the Hellmouth lasted seven seasons. Creator Joss Whedon has extended the saga through graphic novels — seasons eight, nine, and 10 have already been published. Need to play catchup or relive all your favorite Spike err… Scooby gang moments? Fear not, all seasons of Buffy are streaming on Netflix and Hulu for all of your binging needs!
The Buffy anniversary is getting the plethora of merch it deserves! Both online and in stores with apparel, accessories, books, and more being released this year. Jim Fielding, president of consumer products and innovation at 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, said in a statement:
"Decades after its television debut, Buffy the Vampire Slayer continues to stake its ground in pop culture. As one of the studio’s most memorable programs, we are thrilled to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary alongside the devoted Buffy fan community."
