Sarah Michelle Gellar has finally confirmed the rumors that Dolly Parton is a producer on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Gellar, 45, told the world during an appearance on “The Tonight Show” that the suspicions were correct.
“A little known fact. legend Dolly Parton was a producer,” Gellar told Jimmy Fallon, 48.
Parton, 77, was an unknown producer on the popular sci-fi series, which ran for seven seasons from 1997 to 2003, but the cast never saw her.
“We never saw him. We used to get Christmas presents in the beginning that would have a name and I would think. “She doesn’t know who I am,” shared Gellar, who played the show’s main character, Buffy Summers.
But the “9 to 5” singer actually knew who she was.
“Then one day, someone asked him about it, and he complimented the show and my performance,” Gellar continued. “And I said: “Oh, I could die now. Dolly Parton knows who I am and thinks I’m good.’
The Post revealed Parton’s side gig back in 2020, though it was never confirmed by any of the show’s cast members at the time.
Parton and the late Sandy Gallin founded Sandollar Productions in 1986, which produced the spinoff series Buffy and Angel, as well as the original Buffy movie.
The ’90s show was based on the 1993 film of the same name, starring Christy Swanson.
Gellar recently shared that while she’s “very proud of the show,” she wouldn’t be interested in a Buffy reboot.
