Can you believe that it’s only been six years since ABC tried to bring Charlie’s Angels back to network television before canceling the (admittedly terrible) reboot a mere three episodes into the season? Yeah, me neither. As luck would have it, though, the angels are about to make a comeback.

Next year, comics publisher Dynamite will put out a Charlie’s Angels comic based on Aaron Spelling’s original crime drama from 1976 that followed the adventures of three police academy graduates who become glamorous super spies. Today in a public statement, Dynamite head Nick Barruci expressed his excitement at bringing the trio of spies who first started the iconic franchise to a new generation.

Said Barruci:

“The team at Dynamite all grew up watching the adventures of these strong female role-models, and we’re proud to present the upcoming Charlie’s Angels comic book series to an entirely new generation of fans!”

While Sony is also currently working on yet another Charlie’s Angels reboot (directed by Elizabeth Banks,) this upcoming comic isn’t necessarily meant to tie in to that project. Currently, no creative team has been announced for the series.

Mildly interesting bit of trivia about the 2011 Charlie’s Angels reboot: All five of its regular cast members have since gone on to appear in superhero TV. Annie Ilonzeh was Laurel’s friend Joanna in season 1-2 of Arrow; Rachael Taylor is Trish Walker in Jessica Jones; Ramon Rodriguez was Bakuto in Iron Fist and The Defenders; Victor Garber (voice of Charlie) is Martin Stein in Legends of Tomorrow; and Minka Kelly has just been cast as Dove in the upcoming Titans series.
