Buffy Summers and Willow Rosenberg have been through a lot – vampires, undead boyfriends, covens and an assortment of monsters. Their onscreen friendship remained strong to the end.
And it appears that the real-life friendship the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer developed has also remained strong, as seen in the mini-reunion cast mates Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan had recently.

The slayer posted an adorable photo of the two of them during a party that might have been held for Hannigan’s 3-year-old daughter Keeva.
The Instagram pic showed the Scooby-Doo actress wearing a denim jacket and smiling with Hannigan.
“So this girl (#AlysonHannigan) and her husband (#AlexisDenisof) know how to throw a party,” Gellar captioned the photo.
By all accounts, the party was amazing indeed, complete with a farm and pony rides, something that the Crazy Ones mainstay admitted to not expecting to see in Santa Monica.
But apparently it was something that Hannigan, the “party #CraftMaster” can pull off.
Gellar was there with her family, husband Freddie Prinze Jr, 5-year-old daughter Charlotte and 2-year-old son Rocky.
The small Buffy reunion also included Hannigan’s husband Alexis Denisof, who portrayed Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, the Watcher tasked with overseeing Buffy and Faith.
The small reunion came on the heels of the 12th anniversary of the series’ finale, an event that Gellar marked by posting a photo collage on Instagram.
“It was an incredible journey that I am so incredibly proud of,” she wrote. “Thank you all for joining me, and continuing to tell her story.”
The television series, which ran from 1997 to 2003, remains a cult favorite. Produced by the inimitable Joss Whedon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer made Gellar, Hannigan and Denisof household names, along with mainstays Nicholas Brendon, Seth Green and David Boreanaz.
The show also received critical acclaim and led to the spin-off series Angel.
