Buffy the Vampire Slayer stars have recently reunited for a new audible story with Spike (James Marsters) as the hero.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the new story titled Audible's Slayers: A Buffyverse Story is an audio original set 20 years after the series finale and features Marsters reenacting his role along with Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Head, Juliet Landau, Emma Caulfield, Amber Benson, James Charles Leary, and Danny Strong and a newcomer Laya DeLeon Hayes.

The official synopsis revealed the story starts with Spike, who has gone deep undercover in Los Angeles, will “convince the forces of darkness that he's back to his evil ways. But when his cover is compromised by 16-year-old Indira Nunnally (Hayes), Spike finds himself on baby-slayer-sitting duty once more”.

“I'm ecstatic to be back with my dear friends for this next chapter in the Buffyverse, as we take listeners on a familiar but unexpected journey chock full of horror, passion and mischief,” said Marsters in an interview with EW.

The actor added, “I am excited for old and new fans to experience this beloved world of vampire slaying like never before, brought to life through immersive audio storytelling.”
