Michael Vartan Wants The Old Team Back
Vartan hopes that if it happens, he wishes to work with the same group of people, rather than introduce a new cast. Moreover, Vartan revealed on his interview with the aforementioned source that the cast and crew still keep in touch even though the show aired its last episode in 2006.
The Never Been Kissed actor further revealed what happened during the last scene for Alias’ series finale. Vartan recalled that the entire crew were “weeping like babies.” Vartan reasoned that the Alias team really bonded then. This is because they work more or less “17 hours on set” every Friday for five years.
Alias was a television series created by J.J. Abrams. Apart from Vartan, Jennifer Garner, Ron Rifkin, Carl Lumby, Kevin Weisman and Victor Garber were the series’ cast members who stayed till the series ended. The main storyline of the series revolved around Garner’s character, Sydney Bristow, a double-agent for the Central Intelligence Authority (CIA).
Alias ran for five seasons until it officially bowed out of the small screen on May 22, 2006. Do you want an Alias Reunion to happen with its old cast or not? Share your thoughts with us!
