Anonymous Coward writes, Aint-It-Cool-News is relaying that Variety reports that WB has renewed Angel. Reports are that James Marsters is joining the cast as Spike, Charisma Carpenter is leaving. (A check of Variety’s web site confirms the renewal and that Marsters in joining the cast. Alas, the rest of the story is Subscribers Only.) This was mentioned in the ABC lineup article, but it’s worth pointing out to those not interested in that network (or NBC for that matter, whose actual announcement was made and linked to.)
