YES! I need Jack Bauer back in my life taking lives. (deadline.com) Now that FOX canceled Touch, Keifer Sutherland is in talks to return. I hope this happens.

I am so very in on this. Of course that's why it won't really happen. Keeping fingers crossed, I could really go for some more Bauer yelling at everybody again.

The part that I am lost on is the whole idea of a "Limited Event Series" approach. What does that really mean?

One time season? Made for TV movie? Six part mini-series? 12 part mini-series?

I imagine that it will follow in suit to the basic real-time format, just a little confused on the "Limited Event Series" thing. I guess I can google my confusion. I wonder though... if its not episodic, will they be able to be successful using another format?

If this comes to fruition, I hope that it's done well. I thought that the last 2 seasons of 24 were kinda 'meh' & often times felt like I was watching just out of loyalty.

Perhaps a limited run of the series could be the springboard that is needed to finally get that movie going ... With the success of the Bourne films, as well as the Taken movies, there's no reason that Jack Bauer shouldn't be on the big screen.

A lot of times, the worst part of 24 was that it was 24 episodes long. You got a lot of useless characters and plot "fat" that were there just to stretch things out. A leaner, focused story that retains the real time format should be fantastic.

How DARE you people talk about "Plot Fat"! Without it, we wouldn't have had such brilliant television viewing moments such as Kim vs. the Mountain Lion!

The concern that I have is that in the original linked article, it's called a reboot. I assume that they used the wrong word there, but I've been trying to figure out how to reboot a character, using the same actor, after eight seasons.

I like the idea, since the series finale was pretty weak and I think Jack Bauer deserves a real ending. But, I have a feeling that if this limited series does well, they're banking on doing more because of $$$ which might mean another weak ending.


I don't think it's a "reboot" in the traditional sense, but since they completed the stories of all of the secondary characters (Logan, Chloe, Tony, etc.) they will have to surround Jack Bauer with an entirely new premise and President, I would think, which is a reboot of sorts.

Chloe is probably the only real character that they'd need/want to bring back, although Tony could also make a return. Neither of them are necessary, though, and had pretty decent endings.

The actor who played Tony appeared on Castle last week (and it looks like he is going to recur a few times). But my first thought was "I wish I was seeing him on 24 instead."

It's on!




More details (deadline.com) addressing some concerns voiced in the comments above.

    The new 12-episode 24 event series, titled 24: Live Another Day, will likely launch in early May 2014 running into the summer, Fox’s entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said during an upfront conference call this morning. The original idea to continue 24 was as a feature, which died after 24 showrunner Howard Gordon and his team concluded that ”24 being compressed into two hours is not 24,” Reilly said. But after Fox announced its event series push six months ago, Gordon sparked to the idea of resurrecting 24 that way. The 12-hour version will keep the real-time nature of the original series, skipping some hours in the 24-hour period it covers. That would actually benefit the show, Reilly said, noting that 24 producers always felt that the spine of each season of 24 were 12 episodes containing major events, with the other 12 providing connective tissue. “Now we’ll get the best part,” Reilly said. While Fox envisions its limited series as standalone, one-time events, some, including 24, could become franchises with multiple installments though it is unlikely to have a new 24 every year.

Live Another Day is very Die Hard which is probably a comparison you can go a long way with, but what the heck, I'm gonna be watching anyway so no sense in complaining.

I would have said it's too close to that terrible James Bond movie Die Another Day.

It's another good episode, as now they're cementing Jimmy Pesto further as Bob's nemesis. Also loved the introduction of Mr. Fishodor.
