‘24: Live Another Day’ Season 2 Possible?
24: Live Another Day could get a season 2, if Jack Bauer’s return is successful with a positive audience reception, executive producer Howard Gordon told IGN.
“I think [the series could continue] if it’s successful, if the audience is into it and we feel like there’s more story to be told,” Gordon said, hinting at a 24: Live Another Day season 2.
“But the four-year hiatus since we went off [the air] has really taught us how special this show is – certainly to us, having done it,” he added.
The 12-part limited series Live Another Day is currently shooting in London, with Kiefer Sutherland reprising his role as Jack Bauer and Mary Lynn Rajskub returning as Chloe O’Brian, Digital Spy reports.
The limited series will have just 12 episodes and Sutherland told The Daily Star that he’s anxious about the return of 24, especially if fans are disappointed by Live Another Day.
“I’m nervous about it,” Sutherland said. “We did eight seasons that we were all proud of, and so to open the can up again is potentially very dangerous.”
Agent Jack Bauer, who Sutherland hasn’t played since 24 ended with season 8 in 2010, might be “a little slower” as the years catch up with him in Live Another Day.
“I have to kind of skip, hop before I can start to run, just so I don’t snap a tendon,” he joked.
“If it was at all possible to make Jack more angry or pissed off than he was before, that’s what we’re gonna try and do with the ninth season,” Sutherland hinted, DigitalSpy.com reports.
Are you excited about the possibility of 24: Live Another Day season 2? Or would you prefer the series head to the silver screen? A 24 movie has been teased for quite some time now, but at the moment there are no current pre-production talks in the works.
24: Live Another Day premieres with a two-hour special on May 5th on FOX.
