During a recent interview with Sci Fi Wire, actress Rachel Nichols revealed some more details about the impending end of the hit show Alias...

Rachel Nichols, who plays new spy Rachel Gibson on ABC's Alias, let slip to SCI FI Wire that several familiar faces will return before the popular show ends its five-year run this spring. "I think avid fans will be pleased to know that many of their favorite characters will be coming back. Many of them," Nichols said in an interview at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., over the weekend. When pressed, Nichols revealed that returning characters could include Bradley Cooper's Will Tippin, Merrin Dungey's Allison/Francie and Lena Olin's Irina Derevko.

"[Cooper's] also about to do a play in New York with Julia Roberts [Three Days of Rain], so everybody's really happy for him," Nichols said. "Lena Olin. You know, I'd really love to meet Isabella Rossellini [Yekaterina 'Katya' Derevko]," Nichols said. "I don't know if she's going to come back. Nadia [Mia Maestro] will be out of her [coma]. ... I mean, think a lot of great stuff is going to happen. And I think all will end very, very, very well. I know a few things that I'm not supposed to elaborate on, but I know that everybody will be happy, I think."

"And I think that was smart, because nobody knows what to expect, because it's Alias," she said. "I mean, anything can happen." As for Michael Vartan's Michael Vaughn, who appeared to perish early in the season? "I would love him to come back," Nichols said. "But I really think they should really make me be his love interest. Come on, Sydney! You had his baby. You're both in love. But, man, he's so adorable."
