Is a Happy Ending Ahead for Jack Bauer?

Will Jack Bauer ever find happiness?

While fans may have stopped debating that question years ago, considering the unlikelihood of a positive answer, star Kiefer Sutherland says the eighth season of 24 will focus on Jack's potential future.

"People would like to see him at least have the option to have a good life," Sutherland told E! News. "We stripped a lot of those components over the years, by virtue of killing everybody, that whether he wants to live or die seemed to become innocuous—like who cares, there's nothing really to live for. What we did for this season is to really try and create something that would make Jack want to live."

Such as a relationship with Renee Walker, who producer David Fury confirms will return to 24 next year as a damaged individual.

As for other possible returns, Fury said there's a possibility that Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin) and Mandy (Mia Kirshner) could appear on season eight. Viewers may even see Tony again.

"There may be an opportunity for Tony to be pivotal in the show," said Fury.
