'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' 'Dawson's Creek' Headed to ABC Family
Prepare to set sail with Pacey on the True Love.
ABC Family announced Wednesday that it would air repeats of former WB Network hits Dawson's Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer this summer.
Repeats of Dawson's will begin Monday, June 22, at noon, while Buffy will kick off at 5 p.m., with both series opening with 10 episodes as selected by viewers with a Fan Favorite Week. Diehards can cast their votes at ABCFpoll.com starting June 22. Then on June 29, Dawson's Creek will launch with its pilot episode at noon, while Buffy's initial episode will air the same day at 5 p.m.
The news comes as ABC Family is undergoing a rebranding of sorts to focus on "Becomers," with an emphasis on firsts, with coming-of-age series Dawson's and Buffy falling squarely into that category.
