The CW is making Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans’ dreams come true.

As first reported by TV Line, Supernatural has landed Buffy alums Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters for guest starring roles, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Carpenter and Marsters will play a married couple. In a reversal of their Buffy days – when Carpenter played Cordelia, a member of the Scooby gang slayers, and Marsters played vampire Spike – Carpenter will be the supernatural, playing a witch on a rampage after Marsters’ character does her wrong.
