James Marsters teases Buffy favourite Oz's return for Slayers season 2
Slayers: A Buffyverse Story looks set to add another fan favourite character from Buffy to the mix.
If Buffy the Vampire Slayer veterans Spike (James Marsters), Drusilla (Juliet Landau), Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), Giles (Anthony Head), Anya (Emma Caulfield), Tara (Amber Benson), Clem (James Charles Leary) and Jonathan (Danny Strong) weren't enough for you as a die-hard fan, it seems as though you could be in for even more of a treat if Slayers: A Buffyverse Story gets a second season on Audible.
In an exclusive interview with RadioTimes.com, which was conducted in line with SAG-AFTRA union rules, Spike actor James Marsters revealed the happy coincidence which led to a very promising chance of Oz making an appearance next time round.
"There's a character that I didn't get to interact with, Oz, played by Seth Green, who I thought was one of the most charming characters of all," Marsters said.
He continued: "And he happened to be working on another project in the same building that we were recording [Slayers, which is an expansion of the Buffyverse] in and heard that we were down there. And he just came in and said, 'Hi, what are you guys doing? No one invited me!'
"So immediately we started pressuring him to promise that, when we do the second season, that he'll come on board. And he was like, 'Of course, I love it!'"
While the future of Slayers has yet to be confirmed, if it does return for a second season, it sounds likely that Oz fans will have something to look forward to.
"I am not in control of any of these decisions but I have fingers crossed that Oz will be making an appearance when we go back and do more," Marsters said, adding: "And he is just awesome, Seth is awesome. He's just like Oz but even funnier, if you can believe that."
So what do we, the Buffyverse fans, need to do to ensure we get season 2 and an Oz feature – stream the audio story a certain number of times? Start a petition?!
"Do it all!" Marsters advises RadioTimes.com readers.

Slayers was the number one Fiction Audible best-seller for the week of premiere, so interest is certainly high.
"But you can never have too much of that," the Spike actor adds. "Listen to it, enjoy it, if you do, recommend it.
"And pray to the gods!"
