- All of the primary cars seen in the movie are manufactured by Audi or a marque it owns, the result of a product-placement deal. The list includes the Lamborghini Urus SUV that Bosley and the Angels steal while in Turkey; Audi acquired Lamborghini in 1998.

- Elizabeth Banks (Rebecca Bosley) is revealed to be the first female "Bosley," as well as the first former Angel to assume the role.
- Although the Townsend Agency has expanded to depict "Bosley" as a rank within the organization, Patrick Stewart is introduced as the "original" Bosley (whose actual name is John Bosley). He is shown having been digitally retconned into actual shots from both the original TV series as well as the first film adaptation, replacing David Doyle and Bill Murray respectively. Left unmentioned is a subplot from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003), in which Bosley was played by Bernie Mac.

- In the closing credits, Jaclyn Smith - who played one of the original Angels, Kelly Garrett, on the TV version - is revealed to be "Charlie," having used a voice modulator to emulate a male voice. Smith was the only actress to remain in the original series throughout its entire run, and Kelly was the lone Angel from the TV series to appear in the later film adaptations.
- At John (Patrick Stewart) Bosley's retirement party, photos of his early life are presented. In some of them, he is accompanied by the original angels (Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Ladd) as well as those who appeared in the reboot films (Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore).
