On October 5, 2019, Angel celebrates its twentieth anniversary.
Angel aired for five seasons of the now defunct The WB Network. It was a spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and saw the tortured vampire with a soul move from the Hellmouth of Sunnydale to the gritty streets of Los Angeles where Angel continued his quest for redemption by fighting the good fight by helping the helpless against evil.
Seal Team star David Boreanaz, who played the title character Angel, appeared on CBS’ The Talk on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 and hinted that an Angel reunion could be in the works. The possibility of seeing the characters fans have loved for twenty years would be happy news as social media has been a buzzed lately clamoring for one. And what a perfect gift for the series twentieth anniversary. When Angel ended its run on May 19, 2004, it did so with a cliff hanger. Our heroes literally faced Hell on Earth released by their arch nemesis evil law firm Wolfram and Heart. Fred (Amy Acker) and Wesley (Alexis Denisof) were dead. And it looked like Gunn (J. August Richards) was on his last foot. But vamp boys Angel and Spike were undead and kicking; Team Angel wasn’t going down without a fight. All Angel wanted was to fight the dragon.
The adventures of Angel continued in a comic book series called Angel: After The Fall.
There was a recent Wizard World Comic Con in Portland last month that reunited several actors of Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And there’s the upcoming Starfury Vampire Ball in October. But seeing Angel on television again would be a dream come true…as long as we don’t have to give up our souls to get it. Here’s hoping the Powers that Be (the television ones, not those annoying ones that gave Doyle and Cordelia the visions and toyed with our heroes) help make it happen.
