The 24 franchise might not be dead yet. Deadline reports FOX is developing another reboot of the TV series.
Earlier this year, FOX launched 24: Legacy, a spin-off of the original action series. Unfortunately, the show never managed the success of its predecessor and was cancelled after just one season. The original 24 series starred Kiefer Sutherland as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer. The drama lasted for nine seasons before ending in 2010, followed by a brief revival in 2014.
Now, FOX says they’re willing to give 24 another chance. At this summer’s TCA press conference, FOX chairman Dana Walden said the network is working with the creators of the show on another reboot:
We are really exploring what the future, the next version of 24 might be, maybe in more anthological storytelling. … I think that partly what is exciting is, we’re opening up the possibility of it being anything where that 24-hour clock is at the most critical period of a story, so I don’t want to limit them. It can only be an action-oriented show, maybe not. It can only be an emotional thing. The opportunity is for them to think their biggest thoughts.”
FOX Entertainment chief David Madden added that the new series might not be set at the CTU:
The same kind of ticking clock format and apply it to something else. It will have the same urgency but may not be set in the CTU, it will have same style and urgency but in a different venue.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of 24 and/or 24: Legacy? Would you watch another reboot?
Jack Bauer Jack Bauer Jack Bauer Jack Bauer
Bring back our hero
That’s who we want
Fox can try every way for continue 24 but them don t want understand that if no Jack Bauer no luck for the show
One more thing 24 lasted EIGHT seasons before Live Another Day. It was the ninth season
Has FOX learned NOTHING from 24:Legacy?! NO ONE is going to acept another 24 series of ANY KIND until Jack’s story has been resolved. And the debacle that was 24:Live Another Day DID NOT do that.
If 24 Legacy proved anything it’s that fans don’t really want to watch it if Kiefer isn’t involved
If Keifer isn’t involved, I’ll pass. I would imagine that the consensus amongst most of this show’s audience.
I WOULD LOVE ANOTHER 24, IT IS STILL ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SHOWS. JUST SO YOU KNOW I LOVED 24 LEGACY!
PLEASE BRING BACK 24!!! It was an AWWWESSSSSSOME SERIES!!!
