  • 24 getting rebooted

    Came across this article, apparently Fox is trying to bring back 24. One of my favorite TV shows, and what suppose to at some point have a movie.

    Fox may be looking to bring back "24," Deadline reports.

    Kiefer Sutherland is in talks to reprise his iconic role as Jack Bauer, eight years after Fox's mega-hit CIA thriller went off the air, according to Deadline. Former "24" showrunner and current "Homeland" boss Howard Gordon is reportedly on-board with the project, which Fox is eyeing for a limited run.

    EW reports the rebooted "24" season is likely to consist of 13 episodes.

    The news comes just after Fox cancelled Sutherland's drama series "Touch."

    Several people affiliated with "24" tweeted about the news. "Happy Endings" star Elisha Cuthbert, who played Jack Bauer's daughter Kim on "24," tweeted a link to Deadline's story and "24" executive producer David Fury took it a step further, confirming his involvement in the project.

    My problems with this is that it's called 24, yet they want 13 episodes. There is suppose to be 24 episodes in 24. 24 episodes, 24 hours. That's why it's called 24. Limited series? I want a movie or a 2-3 seasons.

    Thoughts?

    I heard about this the other day.

    My disappointment is I really liked his new show Touch. But Fox canceled it after two successful seasons. As they do with everything.

    I heard it was going to be 12 -2 hour episodes.

    So I'm guessing 11 two hour episodes and two 1 hour episodes if its 13 episodes. Doesn't matter to me how they broadcast. I like to record it all and do a 1 day marathon anyway.

    Not really sure how they can bring it back at this point. But I'll definitely watch.

    Was disappointed with how they did him dirty at the end anyway.

      Well...24 is the best show ever. Don't even try to argue about that with me...because...well...you won't convince me otherwise.

      This would be awesome.

        The last two seasons were awful.

        Hopefully a break got them back on the right track

          Don't think anyone is going to argue that.

          But I agree with Corey at least on the last season. They got too repetitive and screwed up the ending.

              I thought all 7 seasons were great.

              I hope they don't tease me with this. You have no clue how happy I'd be if it came back, even if it is just one season.

              Fox needs it, AMC dominates everything right now.

                There were 8...I'm sure it was just a mistype.

                But yes...I agree..I loved every season. Never got bored.

                I'll be so excited if they reboot this.....

                  I loved every season. 24 is seriously one of if not my favorite live action TV show.

                  My only issue is the ending, which they can fix with this comeback. The ending treated Jack wrong, this gives them the chance to do him right.

                  I also liked Touch, it sucks good TV shows get cancelled while terrible shows stick around for 8+ seasons. But I guess it's all a views and money thing.

                    AMC and CBS. CBS dominates the local channels, it rare to hear a new CBS show was cancelled and their shows are always up for emmy awards. Fox relies on Family Guy, it's spin offs, and the Simpsons to get views.

                    NBC is pretty much dead. ABC is trying and just picked up S.H.I.E.L.D

                        I'm just saying IMO AMC dominates. They have the best shows. Don't watch anything on major networks because it mostly sucks now.

                          Call me late, I know, but I just found out about the show earlier this year. My excuse is, I never been a tv watcher, outside of cartoons as a kid, and my sports (football, Basketball, and Baseball) and I was deployed a lot early on in my career (twice to Iraq, and once in Afghanistan) and even then until I got back state side about two years ago, I never really had the time because my old unit used to keep us in the field training all the time.

                          Be that as it may, I found out about the show because when I went on leave earlier this year, I went to go visit my mom, and they had some old episodes on and my mom was watching it, and the show immediately caught my attention.. It was season 2, when CTU first got blown up with the specs of the building provided by ex CTU agent Nina Myers. That was the very first episode I watched. Ever since, I got a Netflix subscription and started over to season one, and its been very addictive. My wife made fun of me for being late to the party but I guess better late than never because this is the best tv show I ever seen, not that I seen many because its only a few things on tv I watch. Anyway, I am finally on season 8 on episode 15 when Jack was late saving President Hassan.

                            You aren't alone. I didn't see a episode of 24 till about 2-3yrs ago. Been watching it over and over again since.
                            I knew of the show before that, but never watched it because I didn't really watch much TV. Then I got Netflix.

                            About 5-6 years ago I did play the 24 video game, just never watch the show.

                              FOX has ordered 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, a thrilling new tent-pole event series set to restart the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon’s Teakwood Lane Productions, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX.

                              The announcement was made this morning by Kevin Reilly, Chairman, Fox Broadcasting Company; Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen, Twentieth Century Fox Television; and Brian Grazer, Chairman, Imagine Entertainment.

                              The high-octane saga will reunite showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 12 episodes representing 24 hours. The suspenseful event series once again follows the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland), who will resume his story several years following the events of the final season.

                              “It’s great to have Jack back. ‘24’ redefined the drama genre, and as we reimagine the television miniseries, this iconic show will again break new ground for the network,” said Reilly. “The series remains a global sensation, and everyone at FOX is thrilled to be back at work with Kiefer, Howard and the incredibly creative ‘24’ team.”

                              “When Howard came to us saying he had an idea for a new chapter of ‘24,’ he quite simply had us at ‘hello,’” remarked 20th Century Fox Television Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden. “’24’ is a signature series for this studio, beloved by critics and audiences worldwide. Howard’s idea to revive the franchise as an event series couldn’t be timelier, and with the brilliant Kiefer Sutherland on board to reprise his iconic role, we can’t wait to get started.”

                              Added Imagine Television Chairman Brian Grazer, “I'm both excited and proud that Howard, Kiefer, and I, along with ours partners at 20th and Fox, have this new opportunity to give ‘24’ fans what they've been asking for – more Jack Bauer. It's been my experience that people love Jack Bauer because he's a guy who cuts through the red tape and gets the hardest things done. I am certain 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will again have a huge impact on our culture.”

                              “The response to ‘24’ is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before,” noted Sutherland. “To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint. Great thanks to 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and the FOX network for this opportunity. Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon.”

                              “Jack Bauer has always been an exciting, thrilling character, and I confess that I’ve missed him. I think the audience has too,” said executive producer Howard Gordon who served as showrunner for most of the series’ run and won multiple Emmy Awards for his work. “The character has evolved through the years, and this new and exciting event series format is perfect to tell the next chapter of his story and continue to reflect how the world is changing. Fans can rest assured that the Jack they know and love will be back.”

                              Originally premiering November 6, 2001, ‘24’ was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over eight seasons, Kiefer Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor – Drama Series. While the series gained global recognition, Sutherland’s portrayal of the legendary character penetrated the American psyche like no other dramatic television character to become part of the cultural lexicon.

                              24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television in association with Teakwood Lane Productions. Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer and Kiefer Sutherland will executive produce, along with an additional team to be announced. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran.
