Diana Rigg, co-star of the original Avengers, declined an invitation to appear on the new series. Instead, archive footage from the The Winged Avenger and From Venus With Love was used in one episode (K is For Kill Part One - The Tiger Awakes) to allow Emma Peel to make a guest appearance.

The opening credits begin with the same fanfare that was used at the start of the original The Avengers (1961) series. See more »
THE NEW AVENGERS Is the sequel series to THE AVENGERS, and for new viewers sees John Steed still as a top secret agent, this time teamed up with the unruffled Purdey, and the dangerous but kind-hearted Mike Gambit. THE NEW AVENGERS Is slightly different to the sixties original, since It takes a polished and lavish look, and makes It tougher and grittier (like a cop show). It Is very difficult to say what kind of AVENGERS fans will like this, but It should satisfy most people.
