The WB Wants More ‘Angel’

Last season he was staked by The WB network. But according to a Cinescape insider, it now appears as if the network may be reconsidering bringing "Angel" back.

"Angel," the supernatural drama series which began as a spinoff of the smash-hit "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," lasted five seasons on the Frog network, and provided action-packed thrills, giggles and the occasional apocalypse.

At the point of cancellation, however, The WB announced that they were interested in continuing the story through a series of television movies, none of which have ever been developed. Reports now suggest that the problem might not be with the network, but rather, with Angel himself.

Show star David Boreanaz has consistently said he is eager to move away from the series, both to launch a movie career and to spend more time with his family. So fans who thought the story ended there, better think again.

Cinescape’s source says that The WB is still pushing the resurrection of the series in one form or another. Apparently, The WB network chairman Garth Ancier has spoken with series co-creator Joss Whedon about doing something with "Angel." That "something" could be television movies, a miniseries or even a complete sixth season.

But before fans get too excited, there is a small catch. The insider explains that everyone in the show's cast and crew have moved on to other projects. James Marsters (Spike) has been involved in a short stint on "The Mountain," impressing writers of the series, and will most likely return to the series in a more frequent basis. Similarly, Amy Acker (Fred/Illyria) and Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) are in the running to be the next Lois Lane in the new "Superman" movie. And David Boreanaz himself has several movie roles lined up.

What does this mean for the show? Well, the news that Acker is too busy to return for a single "Angel" project disproves the rumours of an Illyria spinoff which started with the official magazine.

"Yes, there will be more ‘Angel’ - just hard to say when," the source said. "If Amy gets ‘Superman’ - she's out, if James stays on ‘The Mountain’ - that'll be a juggle, and if David Boreanaz gets any more anti-‘Angel,’ they'll have to recast."

So in an ironic twist, the network which deemed “Angel” not suitable for television, is now desperate for more, and the cast and crew have gone on to greener pastures.

Är det någon här som har hört något kring detta. Tydligen så skrevs artiklen den 21 oktober, vilket ändå är ett tag sedan. Är det någon ny situation över huvudtaget egentligen? Dem inblandade är ju mer eller mindre inte intresserade längre. ... php?t=2020

Tob: Iom att Joss har låtit alla gå ifrån ME (endast han själv är klar) och att han har avslutat sitt avtal med Fox så kan man nog utgå ifrån att det under de närmsta åren inte kommer att komma ut någon spin-off...

Inte på minst två år i varje fall. Först så är det Serenity, sedan hans helt nya film utan kopplingar till tidigare saker, och därefter möjligen en till två Firefly-filmer till.

Edit: Buffy the Animated Series kan fortfarande hända eftersom den måste ändå göras av en animeringsstudio, så den går att göra med "konsultinhyrda" manusförfattare.
