Buffy the Vampire Slayer: 20 Years of Slaying Fan Event in San Diego

Fox is celebrating 20 years of Buffy with a 20th Anniversary Edition DVD Boxed Set and live fan event in the Gaslamp District during San Diego Comic-Con 2017.

At San Diego Comic-Con, fans will have the opportunity to pre-order the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Complete Series 20th Anniversary Edition DVD boxed set at the Fox Booth (#4229) for $99.98.

“The teen years can be brutal. Especially when you’re Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) –  a Sunnydale High School student destined to slay supernatural, blood-sucking baddies instead of hanging out at the mall. Over the seven seasons of this thrilling, witty show, Buffy struggles to maintain allies in the fight against evil, while also engaging in on-off romances with a moody vampire (David Boreanaz) or two (James Marsters). Now you can own this 39-disc set containing all 144 episodes of one of the smartest, funniest, most action-packed series ever to slay on the small screen – also starring Alyson Hannigan, Anthony Stewart Head and Nicholas Brendon.”

Available everywhere on September 19, 2017, the DVD collection includes an official “Buffy” Dark Horse Comic Book featuring a limited edition exclusive cover.
