Season 5 News/Spoiler's

Post by destinyros2005 » 06/24/05 18:30

From: Watch with Kristin:

Alias: Holy cliffhanger! The shocking twist at the end of Alias' season finale, in which Vaughn (Michael Vartan) reveals to Sydney (Jennifer Garner) that he's not Vaughn and the newly engaged couple's car is struck head-on by an SUV, had to be the most jaw-dropping, eye-popping moment of the season.

Still, it's not Vaughn I'm worried about. Despite Teddy C.'s predictions that he would leave Alias this season, I have it on the highest authority that Michael Vartan will be back as a series regular when Alias returns for its fifth season. (Please join me in a celebratory Snoopy dance.)

The concern is when we'll see Michael--or anyone on Alias, for that matter. I'm told ABC suits didn't know of Jennifer Garner's pregnancy when they decided to renew the show (given the surprising early pickup, she probably didn't even know herself), and now the higher-ups are in something of a pickle trying to figure out when the show can return.

Sadly, according to a source close to the show, it's becoming unlikely that Alias will return in the fall as planned, instead coming back at a later date. Though waiting a few extra months (or, shudder, possibly longer) to find out Vaughn's bloody secret might send us all to early graves, here's hoping there might be an upside: that ABC takes the time to find a better time than that kiss-of-death slot on Thursday nights...please?

From: TV Guide:

Question: Did you say the last season of Alias?! Is there no hope for a Season 6?! Please, if you have any details, let me know! — Daniella

Ausiello: From what I understand, everyone at the show is proceeding as if Season 5 will be the last. And that includes series creator J.J. Abrams.

"We're sort of approaching this season as we do every season, like, 'This is it! So, let's just do the best job we can.' In that regard, I feel like it could be the last season, but there's been no indication [from ABC] like, "Wrap things up in 22!" And if such an edict were to come down from the network, J.J. assures me he'll be given enough time to script an appropriate farewell.

Alias will move to its new 8 P.M. Thursday slot in September or early October, despite speculation that the show might be pushed back to mid-season due to star Jennifer Garner's reported (but as-yet-unannounced) pregnancy. It's expected ABC will have enough episodes of the series in the can to get through the fall with all original episodes; it's possible the skein could then take a two-month break in the winter to make room for one of the network's many backup dramas.

The Alphabet brass probably figure the show's loyal fan base will follow it anywhere, allowing the network to improve its weak Thursday performance, even if Alias scores only a respectable number."

J.J. Abrams Teases Alias Season Five: “Alias is actually going to see another odd seismic shift, but it seems to be par for the course for this show. I'm optimistic. I think it's a pretty cool story.” Hmm, maybe Melissa George will get her wish and Lauren Reed will come back. “Alias is a show in which death has a very unspecific definition, so I love Melissa. I think she's very talented, so I would always consider having her back.” [He also adds that he hopes Season 5 will start in January.]

Kay and I were talking about season 3 the other day and how even though we completely hated Lauren in the beginning and wished she would die, season 3 wasn't as aweful as we thought it was.

From: Alias Media

This is from the Alias Yearbook which was released this week. According to Jennifer Garner and producer Jesse Alexander next season Sydney Bristow will...

Sydney Bristow will assume the roll of a handler to a few rookie agents next season. Here are the direct quotes from the magazine:

Jennifer Garner: “I think it's time for Sydney to grow up and be in a position of teaching someone younger. J.J. and I have talked about this a lot - because I don't necessarily buy that she's the wide-eyed innocent anymore at this point, so I'm interested to see her be almost the ‘handler' for somebody new.”

Jesse Alexander: “We're going to be introducing some new characters that we are very excited about – some new young agents. Right now, we're looking for a young woman and a young man around 23 years-old to kind of mix up it a little bit.”

From: Watch with Kristin

From karebear22: I read that Alias is starting on Thurs., Oct. 6. Does that mean there's no hope for it moving back to Wednesday?
Doesn't look like it. ABC seems dead set on Thursdays.

From picardia: I want to know if J.G.'s pregnancy is being written into Alias!
I do, too! Honestly, I don't know yet. Sorry. Last I heard, JJ said that was not the plan, which was as of a few weeks ago. But I haven't actually seen any scripts yet.

From kristoc: When are Ben and Jen getting married? I know you know.
I hear it's definitely happening, despite any silly mag covers you might see. And the second I get my invite, I'll let you know. Well, after I let John Stamos know, since he'll be my date, naturally.

From seba_88: Is Nadia still out of Alias? Please, oh, please, say they've changed their minds!
I'm still hearing she'll be in only about three episodes. Sorry!

From sark4ever: Please tell me about Sark's status next season on Alias! Will he be doing more than two episodes?
Haven't heard anything of the sort...yet. Crossing my fingers!
