5 Things to Know About ABC’s ‘Charlie’s Angels'
Charlie's Angels, of course, dates back to the '70s, when Aaron Spelling's primetime detective series launched everyone from Kate Jackson to Farrah Fawcett into Hollywood super-stardom. The show lasted five seasons on ABC, during which there were a number of cast exits and guest stars. (Fawcett famously left the show after its first season, only to return as a guest star in later years.) A number of spin-offs and reboots were attempted, including the abandoned Angels '89 and the canceled Ángeles, on Telemundo, but it wasn't until the the 2000 movie, starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, that the franchise gained revived success. (The film's sequel, 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, was ultimately considered a disappointment.)
