Briefly between Seasons 2 and 3, Charlie’s Angels seemed to have completely morphed from the departure of Farrah Fawcett with the rock-steady, equally popular trio who flaunted it in Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd recovered. But if Jackson”[hung] up their halo,” as the cover of People magazine famously put it, the producers once again had to scramble for a replacement — and a way to engage audiences with an ever-changing dynamic.
The solution they found was Shelley Hack, an actress previously known for appearing in ads for Revlon’s popular perfume, Charlie, in the 1970s. With her flair and old Hollywood elegance, Hack’s Tiffany Welles was seen as a leader in a shift in direction in the show’s philosophy, toward a heightened sense of glamor and a renewed concern with fashion — complete with what was television’s largest wardrobe budget at the time (via People) . However, the addition of the cast did not help the show’s suffering ratings, prompting ABC to fire Hack at the end of season four.
Joining them was Tanya Roberts in the role of Julie Rogers, who became the sixth and final Angel to be added to the series’ rotating trio. Her character was a former rebellious teenager, much like Roberts himself, and the cast and crew hoped for a while that she might be the one who could reignite viewers’ interest in Charlie’s Angels. Ultimately, that didn’t work out, resulting in the show being canceled after five seasons, leaving Smith as the only OG Angel from Season 1.
