Critic Reviews for Alias Season 5

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

ABC's delicious spy thriller, which returned last night for its final run, calls for a pulp goddess, and Garner is a natural.

The contrast between this mundane dimension of Sydney's life and her athletic international intrigues was genuinely fun to see.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

The final scene brought the season full circle.

Mar 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Alias actually got better as it wound down in this season, and the show was allowed to give us a satisfactory wrap-up.

Mar 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Sadly, Alias jumped the shark by going ahead with the fifth season. But for fans of the show, it was nice to actually see the show have a final episode that wrapped things up. Too often, television shows just die in the corner with no farewell episode.

Jun 3, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Alias is back to its roots with this episode -- great storyline, fast-paced action, the Rambaldi texts coming back into play, and some great character dynamics from previous seasons are all on display.

Mar 6, 2018 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

As a big fan of Sydney, Jack and the gang, I thought they went out the right way and have to give praise one last time.

Audience Reviews for Alias: Season 5

  • Dec 03, 2019
    Jennifer Garner forces her real-life pregnancy into the fifth season of Alias, dooming the series to certain cancellation. When a new terrorist group called Prophet Five emerges APO must discover who its members are and prevent them from uncovering the secrets of Rambaldi. Turning Sydney into a pregnant super-spy is ridiculous and makes the character appear reckless. And the cast turn over (Michael Vartan, Greg Grunberg, and Mia Maestro all leave, special guest appearances not withstanding) is a mortal wound that the show just couldn't recover from. However, the addition of Amy Acker as a new villain is a highlight of the season, and Rachel Nichols brings a new energy to the show playing the Season 1 Sydney role of a black ops CIA agent who learns that she has actually been working for a rogue faction. Luckily ABC gave the show advanced notice of their cancellation so that it could have several episodes to wrap-up the series; which it does impressively well, delivering an action-packed, emotional finale and finally reveals the Rambaldi endgame. Cancellation ended up being a mercy killing for Alias, as Season 5 really struggled to find a direction and ways to continue the series.
