Following the arrival of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in June, Angel will be landing on All 4 this September.
Acquired as part of a licensing deal with the Walt Disney Company, all five seasons of the cult-hit spin-off from Joss Whedon’s series will join Channel 4’s free streaming platform. Angel follows the vampire Angel (David Boreanaz), who is cursed with a soul. Following events that occurred in Sunnydale, the troubled vampire moves to Los Angeles to aid others struggling with their supernatural powers, while on a quest to search for his own redemption. Charisma Carpenter reprises her role from Buffy, again playing Cordelia, alongside Alexis Denisof as Wesley and J. August Richards as Charles.
Originally running from 1999 – 2004 and developed by Whedon, the show received universal critical acclaim.
Nick Lee, Head of Series Acquisitions for Channel 4 said: “It is pretty special that we are able to bring both parts of the Buffy universe together with Angel coming soon to sit proud on All 4. Like with Buffy, there will be many audiences who didn’t have chance to view this the first-time round, so I’m really excited we’ll be able to give you all five seasons in one go.”
Angel will be available on All 4 from 18th September with episodes shown on E4 from late Autumn.
