Buffy” fans take note: Willow and Oz are getting back together, at least for half an hour.

Former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” castmates and on-screen lovebirds Alyson Hannigan and Seth Green will reunite for an episode of Hannigan’s current hit series “How I Met Your Mother.” Officials from the series announced the casting move on its official Twitter account, with Green’s guest starring episode set to be broadcast in December.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Green will play Daryl LaCoutre, “a college classmate who looked at Lily and Marshall (Jason Segel) as his best friends — though they barely remember who he is. They find him 12 years later, still living by the Wesleyan campus, obsessing over a reunion with the married duo.”

Both stars have had thriving careers since the end of “Buffy,” with Hannigan starring in”HIMYM” as well as the “American Pie” movies, while Green is a staple of both “Family Guy” and “Robot Chicken” shows as well the the “Austin Powers” films.
