Monday 19 April 2004, by Anonymous :She was fired- both her and Joss have given interviews to confirm that.
Monday 19 April 2004, by Joey-Anya :Charisma was not fired. Ok, if she was then that’s just stupid. But I don’t think she was. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Cordelia’s storylines were finished, and Charisma wanted to move on to motherhood for a while, 1 year or so.
Monday 19 April 2004, by Dru :Charisma wasn’t really fired, and she didn’t really quit. When she gave birth to her son, she wanted to come back to Angel, but Joss had wrapped up Cordy’s storyline.
Monday 19 April 2004, by nick :she was fired, it was a whole cover up thing for ages. basically, she didnt tell joss about her pregnancy until it was too late, then they incorporated it into season 4. after which, joss was so pissed off, that he decided to give her the boot as it would have been weird going from there. so basically yes she was fired. do you really think that they would get rid of cordelia becaue her story lines had run out, i mean they have milked so much of every other character in the joss verse. there was a whole ploy for a redemption thing. so again, yes , fired.
Monday 19 April 2004, by Anonymous :What was she fired for? Was there an argument or was it an "amicable split" so to speak?
Monday 19 April 2004, by Anonymous :According to an interview I read with Charisma, she was neither fired nor quit. She was basically never told either way if she was coming back, and then shooting started without her, so that’s how she knew. It was never official told to her that her character was gone. That’s what she said at the beginning of the season, anyway...

The WB offering movies is not something that came about from the Save Angel movement, but somethiung they have been talking about with Joss from day one of the cancellation.
I suppose they know, even if they don’t want to admit it that Angel should be renewed. Yet they want to stick to their plan and end it this year.
Personally, I think it should end on Joss’s watch, and no one else’s. If anything, at least it went out on it’s highest note in years, not like Buffy that should have quit two years earlier for it’s high note.
As for Charisma, I have heard nothing of her being fired, except a few people squaking online, but no articles or interviews.
Why would Whedon fire her? If so, why would she come back? I would like to see one of these Joss interviews where he talks about her being fired. Interviews that she has done she talks about it beign time to do other things.
The ultimate irony is WB is thinking of picking up Wonderfalls, after just ending their best show.
Monday 19 April 2004, by Jack :She was unceremoniously dumped. And both she and Joss have confirmed that in their own way. It was miracle they got her back for "You’re Welcome."
Monday 19 April 2004, by Anonymous :Um where have you been? She was let go(FIRED). It is pretty ironic. See, Joss. KARMA.
Tuesday 20 April 2004, by Kate :Okay, guys, one last time: SHE WAS FIRED. I wouldn’t have want her kept on, but still don’t let that detract from this simple fact: She was FIRED. Joss has said so, Charisma gave interviews to Tvguide and such saying so, and why would they lie about somethng like that? hmm?

Joss having his show canceled cause he fired CC is not bad karma. The WB was out to screw him over, from before that.
