Following the triumphant arrival of Buffy The Vampire Slayer in June, we’re delighted to announce that its spin-off, Angel, will be available to stream from 18th September on All 4, with episodes also showing on E4 from late Autumn.
Acquired as part of a licensing deal with the Walt Disney Company, all five seasons of the cult-hit Angel will be available on Channel 4’s streaming platform.
Angel followsthe 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, whilst 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 Buffy creator Joss Whedon, the show received universal critical acclaim, with The Guardian stating “Dark, brooding and altogether more menacing than the original on which the character cut his fangs, it was a welcome addition to Joss Whedon’s cult canon.”
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 the 18th September 2020 with episodes shown on E4 from late Autumn. All seven seasons of Buffy The Vampire Slayer can also be streamed on All 4.
