Charlie's Angels: Season Two
Starring Kate Jackson
Jaclyn Smith
Cheryl Ladd
David Doyle

Charlie's Angels: Season Two was the second season of the TV series Charlie's Angels. Three cast members from season one returned: Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith and David Doyle. This season saw the introduction of Cheryl Ladd as Kris Munroe, the younger sister of former Angel Jill Munroe (Farrah Fawcett-Majors).

Season Two originally aired from September 14, 1977 to May 10, 1978, and proved just as a major success as Season One. There were doubts as to whether Ladd could fill the void left by Fawcett-Majors; however, after her enthusiastic "grand entrance" Kris was warmly welcomed. Co-star Jaclyn Smith said of Ladd: "she had big shoes to fill and she did it with confidence." With Ladd being accepted as Kris, ratings finished in the #4 slot for the season.

Although not an original cast member or character, Cheryl Ladd as Kris gained fame and popularity equal to the original Angels, leading her to become a major star of the series, with several episodes centered on her.
