The California Angels' 1986 season was the franchise's 26th season and ended with the Angels losing the American League Championship Series in dramatic fashion.

The regular season ended with the Angels finishing 1st in the American League West with a record of 92-70, earning the franchise's third division title. After jumping to a 3-1 series lead over the Boston Red Sox in the best-of-seven ALCS, the Angels blew a 3-run lead in the 9th inning of Game 5 that included giving up a two-out, two-strike home run to Boston's Dave Henderson. The Angels went on to lose Game 5 in extra innings, and eventually lost the next two games and the series.

After 1986, the Angels went into a lengthy playoff drought, not returning to the postseason until their 2002 playoff run (though they did come close in 1995). They would not win a division title again until 2004.
