ABC Family is doing a WB Network-retro double take with the additions of “Dawson’s Creek” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” to its weekday lineup starting June 22.
Counting on millennial nostalgia, the network will kick off with a week of “fan favorite” episodes based on votes from an online poll. The following week, starting June 29, each series will air from the beginning with “Dawson’s Creek” airing at 12 p.m. and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” at 5 p.m.
“Buffy” first bowed in 1997, and “Dawson” the following year. “Buffy” moved to UPN for its final two seasons. ABC Family also currently airs reruns of WB fixture “Gilmore Girls.”
