’24: Live Another Day’ Might Be Last of ’24’ Series
If you are a fan of Kiefer Sutherland playing the terrorism fighting Jack Bauer, you might like to know that there is a possibility that the new series of 24 might be the last time Sutherland plays Bauer.
Kiefer Sutherland was speaking at the launch of 24: Die Another Day the actor stated that head writer Howard Gordon revisited the show after four years to deliver a ‘sense of closure’ reports Onthebox.
Sutherland also commented that ‘condensing the 24-hour format into two-hours for the big screen was also unlikely to happen,’ so it seems fans can’t expect a 24 movie at some point in the future, but who knows.
The actor also remarked… “In season eight, when [Jack] looks up into that camera he’s given a 15-minute window to ‘go dark’ and disappear, that was the setup for a potential movie. I think one of the reasons why Howard wanted to do these 12 episodes and where the idea came for him to write was to end it and bring a sense of closure to the show. So I don’t see a film shaping itself around what we’re doing right now.”
Sutherland has believed that season eight would be the last, “We had put this to bed for a reason: Howard was tired. He had written 196 episodes – almost the equivalent of 100 films – in an eight-year period. I actually called to congratulate him on his Golden Globe win for Homeland, and he told me he was glad I’d done so as he wanted to talk to me about something. So it was a surprise.”
So there you have it, it looks like the new series of 24 just might be the last, disappointed?
