Alias may be coming back… or at least a new version of it may be on the way.
Eonline’s Kristin Dos Santos is reporting that, while nothing is official, ABC is in very early talks about a possible reboot of the J.J. Abrams created series, which starred Jennifer Garner.
Dos Santos says that the network, having failed to find a foothold with the cancelled FlashForward, is looking at other ways to create a new series that could resonate with the kind of audience Lost had, and Alias is one title that is brewing among the execs. Apparently this new version of the series would “borrow some elements” from the original, but “would most likely not include any sort of complex mythological throughline such as the Rambaldi prophecy.”
One thing that’s uncertain is how involved Abrams would be with a new version of Alias, if at all – As you’re probably aware, the guy is just a little bit busy these days with other projects, including the new NBC spy series Undercovers
So what do you think? Can you accept someone besides Jennifer Garner as Sydney Bristow? Let us know in the comments!
