Angel Happy Returns

ANGEL (The WB) "Angel and the gang are now running Wolfram & Hart," said co-executive producer Jeff Bell. "It’s a whole new set of challenges. We have to grow up a little bit here. We are really fish out of water. We have a lot to figure out, and everyone around us seems to have a different agenda than we do. So we’re only coming in about three weeks or so after the end of last season. We really want to have the fun of our guys learning the place."

Executive producer Joss Whedon wrote and directed the season premiere, which will introduce some big changes on Angel, said Bell. "The hotel is gone. We’re building a whole brand-new spanking suite of offices that we can move freely through. As in episode 22 last year, all the glass is necrotempered, which means Angel inside the building can be in sunlight. He steps outside and he’ll still fry, but that will give a bit of a different look to the show. And they’re grownups now. You see Gunn wearing suits."

Charisma Carpenter as Cordelia and Vincent Kartheiser as Connor have left the series, but look for both to return as guest stars. Joining the cast is former Buffy the Vampire Slayer alumnus James Marsters as Spike. Exactly how he’ll treturn, considering that he died in the big Buffy series finale, is anyone’s guess. Other Buffy regulars may also show up now and then, including Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar.
