Another reboot for Charlie’s Angels original series from late 1976, NBC had this on their next planned productions for years. But will it ever stay longer than any other rebooted television series? Let's find out!

Developed by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, comes another three beautiful, smart, and hot ladies to grace the famous trio detectives. Three new angels, all fearless detectives, head-turning beauties, and close friends.

There is Abby (Rachael Taylor), a Park Avenue princess who became an excellent thief.

Then there is Kate (Annie Ilonzeh), a Miami cop who fell from grace, losing both her career and her fiancé.

Finally, there is Gloria, a disgraced army lieutenant who has a way with explosives. When one of the angels' missions ends in Gloria's tragic death, Charlie persuades them to partner with Gloria's childhood friend, Eve (Minka Kelly), a street racer with a mysterious past.

They may have some negative feedbacks, but one thing's for sure -- Abby, Kate and Eve will always have each other’s backs. The show had received mostly negative reviews usually because of bad acting, plot, and simply not intelligent enough to be a detective story.

The bad story after so many negative reviews is the cancellation of the show. The revival classic of Charlie’s Angel failed to keep it top. Negative reception and poor audience impact had made its creators disappointingly unsure of the show.

Sadly it’s a fate shared by a lot of new versions of old shows – Knight Rider, Bionic Woman, V and the aborted Wonder Woman are just a few examples. Charlies’ Angels joins NBC’s The Playboy Club and Free Agents as well as CBS’ How To Be A Gentleman and the CW’s H8R on the chopping block.

Rebooting a show can be really challenging but it takes a certain degree of challenge to make it competitive and have it marketable without trying hard only because of good acting.
