Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander Harris in the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has been admitted to the hospital due to a "cardiac episode."

A fresh post on the star's Instagram page revealed the news, which stated that he is now "doing fine" following his hospital stay.

"Nicky sends his love and wanted me to apologize that he hasn't been able to connect as much lately and to give everyone an update," said the author of a series of photos of Brendon during the visit.

Nicholas Brendon (@nicholasbrendon) has shared a post.

"Nicky is doing well now, but he was forced to be transported to an emergency room two weeks ago due to a cardiac incident (tachycardia/arrhythmia).

"Some of you may recall that he had a similar situation after his second spinal surgery last year (for Cauda Equina), but this time. He is attempting to get some rest and is focusing on medical appointments."

Brendon's manager confirmed to the Daily Mail that he was paralyzed last year, stating: "Right now he is concentrating on his health."

Buffy's role as Harris is well-known for the season's run between 1997 and 2003.

Monica Owusu-Breen, the creator of Midnight, Texas, is set to give the hit series a reboot, which was first announced a few years ago, and is set to take a more "richly diverse" approach.

"Some aspects of the series may be seen as metaphors for the issues facing us all today, as opposed to the original," Fox said.

"Here we are, 20 years later, and the world seems a lot scarier. So maybe it's time to meet a new Slayer," Owusu-Breen added.
