As fans of Jennifer Garner’s action show Alias know, the show has been cancelled and won’t be returning for a sixth season. Viewers have been frustrated by the show’s MIA status but it will finally return to the airwaves on Wednesday, April 19, 2006.
With ten episodes left for the series run (including the 100th episode entitled “There’s Only One Sydney Bristow”), it looks like the show will go out with a bang. Many burning questions will be answered (so is Vaughn dead or what? when will Sydney’s baby be born?) and several former cast members are slated to return.
Among the actors slated for the final episodes are: Lena Olin (Irina Derevko), Bradley Cooper (Will Tippin), Gina Torres (Anna Espinosa), Michael Vartan (Michael Vaughn), David Anders (Julian Sark), Mia Maestro (Nadia Santos), James Handy (Arthur Devlin) and perhaps even Merrin Dungey (Francie Calfo). Sounds pretty incredible right?
It was hoped that Terry O’Quinn (Director Kendall) would be able to make an appearance but his busy schedule on Lost has made that too difficult to accommodate.
Production just recently resumed on the show and producers have said that they have plotted through the final episode and know what is going to happen to most of the characters. It is hoped that series creator J.J. Abrams (wrapping up Mission Impossible III) will be able to direct the Alias series finale.
