“In every generation there is a chosen one. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons and the forces of darkness. She is the slayer.”
And soon for the first time ever, she’ll be heading to All 4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be available to stream on UK’s Channel 4’s free VOD service All 4 from 1st June.
Acquired as part of a licensing deal with the Walt Disney Company, all seven seasons of the critically-acclaimed Buffy The Vampire Slayer will be available on All 4 in its entirety.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer sees Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) attempting to live a normal teenage life at Sunnydale High School.
