The New Avengers is a British secret agent fantasy adventure television series produced during 1976 and 1977. It is a sequel to the 1960s series, The Avengers and was developed by original series producers Albert Fennell and Brian Clemens.
\ A joint UK-France-Canada production, the series picks up the adventures of John Steed (Patrick Macnee) as he and his team of "Avengers" fight evil plots and world domination. Whereas in the original series Steed had almost always been partnered with a woman, in the new series he had two partners: Mike Gambit (Gareth Hunt), a top agent, crack marksman and trained martial artist, and Purdey (Joanna Lumley), a former trainee with The Royal Ballet (to which she ascribed the high-kicking skills she frequently used in the series) who was an amalgam of many of the best talents from Steed's female partners in The Avengers.
Runtime: 50 minutes

The New Avengers is a team originally formed due to a mass break-out at the super villain prison The Raft. The team then became a splinter group of Avengers that chose not to comply with federal superhuman registration, as opposed to the government-sanctioned team gathered in Mighty Avengers, which itself was supplanted by a different government-sanctioned team in the series Dark Avengers. The team was reformed in June 2010 as part of the “Heroic Age” story line.
