9-1-1: Lone Star spoilers follow.

Angel stars Julie Benz and Amy Acker are gearing themselves up for somewhat of a reunion, having both signed up to appear in the upcoming third season of 9-1-1: Lone Star.

They won't be seen on screen together, reportedly, but that's beside the point. According to TV Insider, Benz – who played Darla on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its David Boreanaz-led spin-off – is set to appear in the season 3 premiere, while Acker – who starred as Fred and Illyria in Angel – won't show up until the fifth episode.

Benz's character Sadie is said to be an outdoorsy artist, who occupies the hill country cabin next to Rob Lowe's Captain Owen Strand.

"Sadie is there for this first adventure [of the ice storm hitting Austin], and she absolutely could come back at some point," executive producer Tim Minear told the publication. "Owen and Sadie are not really a romantic coupling so much as two formidable self-assured people who find each other in a moment of crisis."

Acker is confirmed to be appearing in more than one episode, as she brings Catherine to life, the "accomplished" and "formidable" chief of staff to the governor of Texas.

"She's in the political world in sort of a rarefied space. She's somebody who will come into Owen's orbit," Minear explained, describing the pair's dynamic as "super fun and sexy".

Benz's former acting credits include Roswell, Desperate Housewives, Hawaii Five-O and Dexter. Acker's filmography is made up of titles such as Dollhouse, Suits, The Gifted and Person of Interest.

9-1-1: Lone Star airs on FOX in the US and Sky Witness in the UK.
