The action sci-fi starring Jennifer Garner could be brought back to life in another form of series which employs some of the original elements.

ABC is still trying to compensate the end of "Lost" by replacing it with equally gripping shows. The closest the network gets at the moment are "V" and the newbie "No Ordinary Family". However, there's a report that the Alphabet is brewing a plan to bring back "Alias".

E! Online reported that a "reliable insider" informed them about a talk in ABC where the award-winning series will get a "reboot". It should be noted that nothing is official yet because it is only a "very initial talk at this point".

The idea is to make a new version of the J.J. Abrams-produced show and borrow some elements from it. But the new series will be less complicated in its mythological factor such as the Milo Rambaldi prophecy. It is still unclear whether Abrams will be involved in the reboot. The producer is working on "Undercovers" which has been picked up by NBC.

"Alias" experienced quite a success between 2001 and 2005 especially in the fourth season. However, ABC moved it to Thursday, 8/7c slot which is notoriously lethal for a show. The rating plunged almost drastically and the show never revived since.

Oooh yes please, a dumbed down version so dumb people can understand it without all that unnecessarily confusing Rambaldi nonsense.....erm, no thanks. I like it the way it was...WITH the "complicated" Rambaldi mythology, thank you. And I will be pleased to remember it as such, without this sullying its reputation. If you only have two brain cells to rub together though, my guest.
