The group included Amber Benson (Tara), Julie Benz (Darla), Iyari Limon (Kennedy), Amy Acker (Fred), James Leary (Clem), James Marsters (Spike), Clare Kramer (Glory), Alexis Denisof (Wesley), Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia), Alyson Hannigan (Willow), and Nicholas Brendon (Xander).

Upon seeing the slew of backstage snaps at the fan convention, Buffy creator Joss Whedon tweeted the cover of Mindy Kaling’s 2011 book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me, captioned: ‘Me RN.’

While reminiscing, the cast also discussed their favorite colors (Alyson picked green), Girl Scout cookies, and identified which Harry Potter houses they belonged in.

Noticeably missing were Buffy’s two biggest stars – Sarah Michelle Gellar (who played the titular teen) and her onscreen leading man David Boreanaz (whose spin-off Angel ran five seasons).

And it looks as though Joss Whedon and Monica Owusu-Breen’s reboot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (without Gellar’s involvement) won’t be happening anytime soon on Fox.

‘It’s not on an incredibly fast track,’ Fox TV Group CEO Gary Newman said at the TCA press tour on August 2 – according to E! News.

‘There actually is no script to see. We’ve sat down with the creators and have had conversations with them about it. It’s a very exciting prospect. It’s still fairly early, we haven’t pitched it to any possible licensees yet. All that is still to come.’
