By the time season four of Charlie’s Angels had rolled around, Kate Jackson had quit the show. It turned out that she was far more difficult to replace than Farrah Fawcett had been two years earlier when she quit after only one season.
The difference was that Cheryl Ladd was a sensation as Farrah’s replacement but Shelley Hack never really clicked as Jsckson’s replacement.
Why did Farrah come back? Producers sued her after she quit and the lawsuit was preventing her from appearing in any major studio films. So part of the lawsuit’s settlement agreement was the Farrah return for three episodes in seasons three and four.
The show lasted one more season with Tanya Roberts replacing Hack but Farrah never appeared as Jill Munroe again. That’s why this DVD, out today, is worth checking out.
