‘Twenty years ago this week, tonight in fact, #Alias aired for the first time on @abcnetwork,’ Garner began. 

‘If you’re an idea born of @jjabramsofficial’s brain— you’re a big one; JJ’s ambitious imagination pushed every department on the crew of Alias through and past the norm, it was so much FUN,’ Garner continued.

‘Since the end of the show, April of 2005, running into a cast or crew member from Alias has always led to this question—When will you get everyone back together for a reunion? The 20th anniversary seemed like as good an excuse as any, so the call went out—reunion party is happening, pass it on!’ she added.
