The New Avengers

The New Avengers logoWelcome to The New Avengers guide at TV Tome. A full 10 years after the end of the original Avengers, series creators Brian Clemens and Albert Fennell chose to bring the classic British spy series back with a 70s twist. Instead of the classic 2-person team as before, John Steed was paired with 2 additional agents--Purdey & Gambit. Like its predecessor, the series often featured fantastical plots with diabolical masterminds as villains, but this new version infused the franchise with a thrilling new feel. Bold colours, spectacular shooting locations, and less-ambiguous plots & characters all combined to present an exciting new series. The series was plagued with financial problems concering foreign investors, but that did not take away from the episodes produced. "New" Avengers...

At their peak in 1980 The Pros were earning as many as 17.6 million viewers.
