— Sarah Michelle (@SarahMGellar) March 10, 2017In a longer letter on Instagram, Gellar also thanked the cast and crew, and reflected on Buffy’s place in pop culture history.”That first season, we liked to think of ourselves as the little show that could. Posted March 10, 2017 by Kelly WooTwenty years ago, on March 10, 1997, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” premiered on the WB and proceeded to have a profound effect on television. It was a long and challenging road to get there. While we knew the potential, I don’t think any of us saw the lasting impact our show would have,” she wrote.”As an actor, you wish for that one role where you can leave your mark and forever be remembered, with Buffy I got so much more. We made this show for you, and your unwavering support has kept this show going long past our seven years. Thank you to Gail Berman for always believing there was a show in that movie. She’s a feminist challenge to gender hierarchy. She’s a feminist challenge to gender hierarchy.”20 years ago today, I had the greatest privilege to bring Buffy to your tv screens for the first time. Thank you to James for understanding that while Buffy and Spike may have been love/hate, I have nothing but love for you. Buffy may have been the Chosen One, but I was the lucky one. You are everything. Alyson, as any woman knows, you are nothing without the love and support of great female friends, so thank you for being that. While we knew the potential, I don’t think any of us saw the lasting impact our show would have. Michelle, you will always hold a key to my heart. And always remember…”if the apocalypse comes, beep me” #buffyslays20A post shared by Sarah Michelle (@sarahmgellar) on Mar 10, 2017 at 9:20am PSTWant more stuff like this? That first season, we liked to think of ourselves as the little show that could. As an actor, you wish for that one role where you can leave your mark and forever be remembered, with Buffy I got so much more. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the incredible crew that worked tirelessly (and also really tired) to bring this show to life. Like us on Facebook. Thank you to David, for always being my Angel. Thank you to all the incredible actors for seven seasons of amazing performances. Thank you to Joss Whedon, for trusting me to give life to one of the greatest female characters ever created. First the movie, then a passed over pilot presentation, and eventually a mid season time slot on a little known network.
