To everyone's surprise, ABC announced late Wednesday that "Alias," the Emmy-winning thriller starring Jennifer Garner as agent Sydney Bristow will air its final episode in May next year. No reason was given for bringing the series to an end.
As a matter of fact, the show's ratings have declined sharply since it moved to a tougher US time slot opposite the reality hit Survivor: Guatemala. Probably that's the cause of the show's end. On the other hand, many believe that it is Garner's impending motherhood that caused it.
