Production on the show’s fifth (and likely final) season is slated to begin on Monday, August 1. And as far as I know, ABC still plans to launch it this fall.

J.J. will be bringing in a couple of rookie agents and Sydney will serve as their mentor. I’m hearing that the roles haven’t been cast yet, but they’re looking for an actor and an actress in their early twenties as we speak. Ideas? Votes?Personally, I’m rooting for a guy by the name of David Anders . Or Bradley Cooper . Sniff, sniff. By the way, I’m told that David DID shoot a scene for Alias’ finale, and it will either be included in the premiere or on the DVD. No news on Lena Olin signing on for the new season. It’s very likely that Alias will end after this season. This is number 5, and all contracts would have to be renewed (all actors signed initial 5-year deals).

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.”
