ABC Family Acquires Dawson's Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 1, 2015)

Dawson's Creek Buffy the Vampire Slayer

ABC Family has acquired two very popular teen dramas. And the dramas are... Dawson's Creek and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Both shows were staples of The WB in the late 90s and will begin airing on ABC Family in reruns on Monday, June 22, 2015. Dawson's Creek will air at 12pm Monday-Friday following Gilmore Girls, while Buffy the Vampire Slayer will air at 5pm Monday-Friday. Dawson's Creek is replacing one airing of Gilmore Girls and Buffy the Vampire Slayer is replacing an hour of Boy Meets World, but that show will remain from 6-7pm and 12-2am on weeknights. ABC Family is not making any other changes to its line-up besides these two hours. Dawson's Creek has been on cable before like on TBS and The N (now called TeenNick), while Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been on multiple networks recently (like FX, Pivot and Logo).

Dawson's Creek of course aired from 1998-2003 on The WB and starred James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, Joshua Jackson and Michelle Williams. Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired on The WB from 1997 to 2001 and then UPN from 2001 to 2003 and among the stars were Sarah Michelle Gellar, Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, Charisma Carpenter, Anthony Stewart Head, David Boreanaz and Seth Green.
