24 to Return as Limited Series on Fox?

at . Comments

The clock may soon resume ticking on 24.

According to Deadline, Fox is in negotiations with Kiefer Sutherland to reprise the role of Jack Bauer for a limited run of the iconic series.

The shortened season would be produced by veteran showrunner Howard Gordon and focus on a new storyline for Bauer, who was last seen ending communication with Chloe and running from the authorities.

Talk of a 24 movie has been ongoing since the drama concluded in 2010, but the project never came close to production.

Sutherland will also have a lot more free time on his hands going forward: Fox canceled Touch after two seasons today.

Wow! I stumbled upon the news while researching a cast-member on IMDB.
Fox Advertisers: I've watched every 24 rerun I can find, including those currently playing on the Audience Network. I know where I will be in May of 2014!


This is great news; I can’t wait to see more from 24 and Jack Bauer. I’m bummed that Touch has been canceled, but not surprised considering the low ratings the show received. There are still a couple episodes of Touch I haven’t watched yet because I usually work the night shift at DISH, so I’m not usually home to watch primetime TV. I’ll probably miss watching the new season of 24 airs for the same reason, but I will still be able to watch both shows on my iPad. I’ve got the DISH Anywhere app installed, so I can watch live TV, or the shows recorded on my DVR, on my iPad wherever I go with internet access.


I hope 24 returns, love that show.
