Big news this morning: iconic 90's show Buffy The Vampire Slayer is back and being resurrected on a TV screen near you very soon.
Rumours have been circling for years, and while it's not the reunion show you'd hoped for, the resurgence of the original is official.
From June 1st (just 11 days - !), the seven-part series is going to be available to stream on All 4. Watch in one go or, if you'd rather not spend an entire week on the sofa, screen solo episodes every weekday evening from 11pm on E4.
You'll likely know of the famous series, which aired in the late 90's and early noughties between 1997 and 2003. It taught viewers valuable friendship lessons and how to dress like a true 90's style icon.
Played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, said main character was a vampire slayer who faced the difficult challenge of finishing high school and completing her duties as the 'Chosen One'.
Living on the Hellmouth (FYI, an area where the barriers between dimensions are weak, encouraging portals between Earth and hell dimensions to form), she was helped in her duties by her friends, Willow Rosenberg (played by Alyson Hannigan) and Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendon), plus her 'Watcher', Giles (Anthony Head).

"This for many is a long awaited chance to relive this iconic series. For others, it will be a chance to experience it for the very first time, and find out what all the fuss is about!”
Keen to tune in? We've got you: Buffy The Vampire Slayer will be available on All 4 from June 1st. Alternatively, you can tune in to E4 to catch individual episodes on weekday evenings at 11pm.
