Will ABC Reboot Alias To Woo Lost Viewers?
In effort to keep the Lost audience from slipping through their fingers, ABC executives are rumored to be considering a reboot of J.J. Abrams’ spyfi drama Alias.
E! Online’s Kristin Dos Santos reports that while “nothing is even close to being anything official yet,” a network insider tells there’s “very initial talk” of a remake that would borrow some elements from the 2005-2006 cult-favorite series while dropping the byzantine mythology involving the Rambaldi artifacts.
Alias, which starred Jennifer Garner as CIA agent Sydney Bristow, was never a major hit for ABC, reaching its ratings peak during its fourth season when it followed Abrams’ more successful series Lost.
