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.
