The cast of Angel reunite 20 years after the premiere

It’s quite a horrifying thought that Angel now technically qualifies as ‘Classic TV’. How did that happen? It feels like it was only on about 10 years ago, but it’s actually now 20 years old.

Sigh.

Anyway, to celebrate this momentous date, Entertainment Weekly reunited almost all the surviving cast members – yes, David Boreanaz turned up but Vincent Kartheiser and the lawyers at Wolfram and Hart seem to have been busy – to chat with co-creator David Greenwalt about the making of the show.

Interesting fact – episode two was apparently so dark that the network panicked and the producers shut down production of the show to try to make it a tad lighter.
