(CBS) Goodbye, Angels.

ABC has shut down production on its reboot of "Charlie's Angels," it was reported Friday.

Pictures: New fall TV on ABC

According to Deadline, the network will air the remaining four episodes of the show in its current timeslot (Thursdays at 8 p.m.).

"Charlie's Angels," which starred Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachael Taylor as the crime-fighting trio, debuted on Sept. 23 to poor reviews and meager ratings. Four episodes aired before ABC pulled the plug.

The short-lived series joins NBC's "The Playboy Club" and "Free Agents, CW's "H8R" and CBS' "How to be a Gentleman" (which shut down production last week) as this year's freshman TV causalities.
