Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Jennifer Garner and the Alias cast are celebrating the show's 20th anniversary.

Garner, who starred as Sydney Bristow on Alias, reunited with the cast and crew at an anniversary party Thursday.


Victor Garber, Michael Vartan, Merrin Dungey, Gina Torres and Kevin Weisman were among the other stars in attendance. Series creator J.J. Abrams was unable to attend.

Garner shared videos from the event on TikTok and Instagram

"Twenty years ago this week, tonight in fact, #Alias aired for the first time on @abcnetwork," Garner captioned the post. "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."


"Since the end of the show, April of 2005, running into a cast or crew member from Alias has always led to the 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 said.

Garner said they missed Abrams and "everyone who was working and couldn't make it in."

"But man, it felt so good to be together again," she wrote.

Weisman, who played Marshall Finkman, and Mia Maestro, who played Nadia Santos on Alias but was unable to attend the party, responded in the comments.

"Such a fun night," Weisman wrote.

"So beautiful to see everyone together. Super sad I was not in town for this reunion. As always @jennifer.garner you are making magic happen," Maestro said.

Alias had a five-season run on ABC from 2001 to 2006. The series followed Sydney (Garner), a double agent for the C.I.A. posing as an operative for the criminal organization SD-6.

Garner paid tribute to Garber, who played Sydney's father, Jack Bristow, on the actor's birthday in May.
