ALIAS: Jennifer Garner Would ‘Sign Up’ For Season 6

alias-alias

Jennifer Garner has admitted she’d be interested in an Alias reboot.

Alias spanned five seasons between 2001 and 2006, with the story focusing on Garner’s iconic CIA agent Sydney Bristow.

While Garner believes an Alias reboot is unlikely, she told Fretts On Film that she’d be willing to reenter the spy game if the right ingredients were in place:

“I think JJ. Abrams has got his hands full. I don’t see him turning around and rebooting Alias anytime soon. If he was involved, I’m sure the rest of us would sign right up.

We had a blast making that show and we’re all still superclose, so I’m sure you would find an eager group of participants right there.”

Of course, Garner’s not the only Alias cast member this year to have been  quizzed about the possibility of a sixth season. Victor Garber, who played Jack Bristow, suggested that the time for an Alias return has passed:

“Well … you shouldn’t expect one. Do you want me to lie? [laughs] If it was up to me, it would have happened a few years ago. Sadly I don’t have that power. Alias will always have a place in J.J. Abrams’ heart but it’s time to put that away. Or get the DVDs [laughs].”

    I loved Alias (I never saw Season 5). I’ll probably get the box set for xmas. I got 24 last year ‘cos I love the mad mad world of Jack B. It would be nice to see all those Alias alums again. but, it’s time has come and gone. Sometimes you can’t go back. As I never saw the last season I don’t know how it ended, but if there are any loose ends a movie would be awesome. :-)

    It’s no wonder Jen is softening her stance with regards to “Alias”, given the endless string of forgettable film trash that she has immersed herself in since Sydney faded to black.

    She must long for the days when a generation knew her for something other than being just another in a long line of Neutrogena girls, spewing advice about how to get that last chunk of makeup off before hitting the sack at the end of a grueling day.

    Unfortunately, fielding those obligatory questions about the glory days of “Alias” doesn’t bring her any closer to re-establishing herself as the world’s number one spy chick. Buy, hey, JR Ewing took a 20 year break and just look at him now.

      Wouldn’t we all die and go to heaven (or even volunteer to pay higher taxes) for some more of this (courtesy of the best pilot episode EVER, the benchmark by which all pilots past and present must be measured) ?

    Loved the show then and now!! Just finishing up watching the entire series all over again. I think an Alias reboot would do well especially considering what else is on tv now. A fresh start with Sydney, Jack, Vaughn, Dixon, Marshall, and Isabell and other cast would be a good kick off. As for Irina give her one episode – she kidnaps Isabell and Sydney realizes Irina is no mother at all and after rescuing Isabell she puts a bullet between her eyes with no regret. Sloane’s teeter between good and evil keeps viewers guessing. Need to step away from the whole Rimbaldi thing and come up with something new for the bad guys. Honestly I’m addicted all over again watching 4-5 episodes at a time. Great combination og action, intrigue, family matters, and everyday life all roled into one. Just an exceptional base cast that can’t be replaced. Think a good opportunity would go to waste if it’s not picked up again.

      Heck, there’s even chatter this week about bringing “Ironside” back, so someday “Alias” will return, but sadly not the “Alias” (or the characters/actors) that we love so much.

      The good news to cling to is that “Nikita” was only off the air for about 9 years before a reboot. “Alias” has already been gone for 7. The bad news is that Victor Garber is already 2 years older than Ron Rifkin was when “Alias” debuted, so the window of opportunity for these actors (not that I believe ANY of them would be interested) is rapidly closing.

      For now, we’ll have to settle for Will Tippin’s girlfriend, Jenny, kicking ass on “Person of Interest”. At least, I’ll be pretending it’s Jenny, all growed up and everything.

      He let Sark go cuz the ladies loved them some Sark. You don’t want the ladies picketing ABC studios. And besides, the guy had roguish charm and $500 shoes. How do you stop a guy like that?

    I would love for alias to come back. I agree that the way the show ended, it needs to comeback with a bang and wrap up sloan. I love the story line all together. Especially since Sydney has two kids now, it would be great to hve them apart of it now and have whole family as a crime terroists saving world family. lol! This time just let Sydney and Vaughn have more happy moments rather than bad, it seems like before that couple could never ge break. PLEASE BRING BACK ALIAS!
