In Slayers: A Buffyverse StoryEmma Caulfield will voice her Buffy the Vampire Slayer character Anya alongside her former costars James Marsters (Spike), Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia), Anthony Head (Giles), Juliet Landau (Drusilla), Amber Benson (Tara), James Charles Leary (Clem) and Danny Strong (Jonathan). The audio-only story hits Audible on Oct. 12, and as teased by Caulfield on Instagram Wednesday, her character is going to play a big part of the Spike-centric story to come.

“We’re back baby,” she wrote. “Anya has lots to say. 😂”

How, exactly, Anya will figure into this new chapter remains a mystery. In Buffy‘s series finale “Chosen,” Anya fought alongside the Scooby Gang in the apocalyptic battle against the First Evil, but she was brutally slain with a sword by a Bringer. In addition, it’s uncertain whether the character’s appearances in the comic books will be acknowledged in Audible’s continuation.

Slayers follows Spike who has gone deep undercover in Los Angeles, “convincing the forces of darkness that he’s back to his evil ways,” reads the official description. “But when his cover is compromised by 16-year-old Indira Nunnally (Hayes), Spike finds himself on baby-slayer-sitting duty once more. While he attempts to track down a watcher for his eager new protégé, their paths collide with the veteran Slayer of a parallel reality where Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) never existed and Cordelia Chase is the one-and-only Slayer. And Cordelia needs Spike’s help with a classic big bad terrorizing her world… his old flame, Drusilla.”

“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 a statement. “I’m excited for old and new fans to experience this beloved world of vampire slaying like never before, brought to life through immersive audio storytelling.”

Slayers: A Buffyverse Story was written by Benson and Christopher Golden, and directed by Benson, Golden and Kc Wayland. (Benson and Golden have also written Buffyverse comics such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow & Tara — Wannablessedbe and Wilderness; Benson herself contributed the story “The Innocent” to the graphic novel Tales of the Slayers.)
