Will 'Alias' Return to TV?

Is the spy show Alias returning to TV?

Well, not exactly, but the topic came up during a recent interview with Jennifer Garner -- and she said she'd totally be up for it.

Garner said, of course, that J.J. Abrams would have to be on board, but noted to Bruce Fretts of The Fretts on Film blog, "I don't see him turning around and rebooting Alias anytime soon."

She added, "If he did it and 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 super close, so I'm sure you would find an eager group of participants right there."

So, unfortunately, it doesn't sound like there are any firm plans for an Alias reunion, but who wouldn't love to see what Garner's Sydney Bristow is up to?

Alias also starred Michael Vartan, Ron Rifkin, Victor Garber, and Bradley Cooper.

Interestingly, Garner has never seen the whole series, as she told Moviefone she had come across an Alias episode, calling it "the weirdest thing."

Garner explained, "A lot of episodes maybe I saw but I was so busy at the time, I don't think I even saw them all. Someday I want to go back and watch them. I felt like I was watching a different person. I didn't know what I was talking about, I kind of remembered the outfit but I started speaking another language that I didn't remember learning and then I did a fight I didn't remember. It was crazy."

Show of hands for those who would like to see Garner back in those Sydney Bristow wigs and costumes?

Yes, please.

I absolutely love Alias and would like for it to return if the same characters where in it. It also needs to work with the older seasons if they started it again. For instance they couldn't change the fact that Sloane and Sydney didn't trust each other and etc.
