As far as introductions go, the new look of the re-imagined Charlie’s Angels cast isn’t half bad – if you’re browsing through the latest Talbot’s catalogue.

Starring Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), Annie Ilonzeh (Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief) and Rachael Taylor (Transformers, Grey’s Anatomy), Charlie’s Angels is all but locked into a spot on the ABC fall schedule.

In an effort to keep fans aware of the goings-on in Charlie’s Angels, ABC has issued a new image of the fetching crime-fighters that is high on fetching and low on crime fighting.

It’s hard to tell where the network is going with this image. The girls certainly seem like they’re enjoying one another’s company (they are actresses after all), but beyond that there is precious little to go on. Unless the Charlie’s Angels 3.0 sees itself as a heartfelt interchange on the merits of twenty-something female relationships, the pic gives no hint as to the tone of the actual program.

Check out ABC’s Charlie’s Angels below:

While the image lacks any real information for the forthcoming show, we do know that unlike the light-hearted, physics-defying romps starring Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu, this won’t be your father’s – or slightly-older brother’s Charlie’s Angels. ABC promises the new show will be a “fairly serious, non-campy” version of the characters.

Initial reports suggest that in this grim-and-gritty loving world we find ourselves in, the women in Charlie’s employ are actually going to be reformed criminals who are offered the opportunity to make amends for their crimes – as opposed to the disenchanted police cadets of the first series. Like the late 1970s program, however, each episode will be a self-contained story — with a clear resolution at the end of each installment. Though certain plot elements will carry over from one week to the next, the show will largely be a one-and-done exercise like Hawaii Five-O and NCIS.

Character details remain mostly under wraps, but one of the girls is reportedly a con artist and another is an ex-Marine with some serious weapons training. The third ‘Angel’ purportedly had her role re-written prior to the pilot’s late-April start date – so it’ll be a little while before we get the full details on the third crime fighter.

Because ABC has other, more original, offerings in the works like Poe and AKA Jessica Jones, it may be hard to take a third helping of Charlie’s Angels seriously; however, the series does have some real talent behind it. Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are executive producing and giving the pilot’s script a spit-shine – so that certainly bodes well for the show’s initial offering. How well it will be received from them on is still very much up in the air.

Expect to see Charlie’s Angels debut sometime this fall on ABC.

  1. Reformed criminals? Did they steal the carpet off the catwalk?
    those 3 don’t look like they know what a Ruger is.

  2. WWWAAAAAHHHHHAAAAAHHHHAAAA!!!!!! CRIMEFIGHTERS!!!!????!!!??? Those three??!!??!!
    I don’t think so, you sure that pic isn’t from a Beverly Hills 90210 spin off..they should stop production right now rename it Models Inc. and rewrite it so that they’re all professional MMA Fighters that would be more believeable.
    Con artist…ex Marine…come on more like a make up artist and an ex Playmate.
    Yea and those talented guys from Smallville… if they’re so talented then why don’t they come up with something original and not a rehash or a retelling of characters from truly talented writers and creators.

  3. This isn’t hill street blues, it’s CHARLIE’s ANGELS… angels. Anyone expecting realism shouldn’t even be commenting on this. They’re hot, with guns… suspend disbelief or be gone.

    • DITTO

    • Agreed.

  4. Fail. 3 eps max.

  5. Did you happen to read the article? It suppose to be a grittier, more serious version. Yea those three look like hardened ex con weapons experts ex marine types.
    Yea suspend disbelief and dumb yourself down.

  6. “… Smallville creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are executive producing and giving the pilot’s script a spit-shine…”

    This is the only thing that gives me any hope of this being somewhat decent. NBC tried to reboot The Bionic Woman and failed horribly. CBS rebooted Hawaii 5-0 and did a fantastic job. The one thing that makes me apprehensive about this show is the darker, grittier aspect. That failed big time with The Bionic Woman and if they go that route with CA, it too will probably fail. Some shows are supposed to be fun, light-hearted shows, and CA is one of them. Notice CBS didn’t try to “gritify” Hawaii 5-0 and it’s one of the best new shows this year. People might want to watch grittier movies, but with the way the world is right now, shows people watch weekly should be more about escapism and good over evil. IMO, anyway.

  7. By the looks of that photograph I can’t take this show seriously. Can you picture any of these girls running around with a gun? I doubt it

  8. Relax, naysayers. Take a good look at the pic again. All they are doing is posing for the pic just so ABC, as it stated in the beginnings of the article, could give you a look at the women playing the angels. The pic is a pic of the actresses not the shows characters/angels. Big difference. THEY ARE NOT IN CHARACTER, MORTALS!

  9. I guess the question is: Which will be worse: Wonder Woman, or Charlie’s Angels?

  10. what actor will provide the voice of charlie ?

  11. How is no one pissed that they got rid of the Asian!! everyone agrees; this looks like dog crap. But no one mentions they were stupid to get rid of the Asian.
