Fans of 24 have been waiting to hear if the action series will be returning for a 10th season since the end of season nine last spring. According to the Telegraph, FOX may not be the one pulling the plug this time.
In an interview, series star Kiefer Sutherland expressed doubts about returning for another round of 24.
But the Jack Bauer character is not dead, so has Sutherland moved on?
“Me, I don’t see going back to it. We had set out to do 12 episodes to end the show and deal with some of the past history of the show. It was also an irresistible opportunity to go shoot in England. So for all of those reasons it made sense to do that last season.”
But with no Kiefer there is no more 24. He can sense that I am a little shocked to hear him reveal that one of TV’s longest running series is, finally, finished. That also puts to bed all of the long-standing rumours about a feature film. There’s a pause and then that chuckle again.
“But I think I said the same thing at the end of season 8 so I would hate to be held to that.”
What do you think? Is it time to say goodbye to Jack Bauer and 24? Would you watch a 10th season? How about without Sutherland?
