For the 1960 comedy see Angel (1960).

Angel is a spinoff of the cult favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer, both created by Joss Whedon. Along with David Greenwalt, Whedon explores more mature themes in Angel, and, as a result, Angel is seen as a much darker and epic show than Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Angel stars David Boreanaz as the lead character, Angel (a vampire with a soul), and Charisma Carpenter as Cordelia Chase, another character who crossed-over from three years on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Together with his own group of sidekicks, including Wesley Wyndham-Pryce, played by Alexis Denisof, they fight as vigiliantes in Los Angeles, fighting off monsters, demons, and vampires. Angel's ultimate goal is to redeem himself, one good deed and saved soul at a time.

In 2007, it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that the series, like Buffy, would continue on in a canon series of comic books entitled "After the Fall." The comics will pick up the series after the season five finale and will be written by Whedon and Brian Lynch.
