Netflix Dropping Fox’s ‘24′ From Streaming Queue

We’ve got just a couple days to watch 24 on Netflix! Read below!

Tick, tick, tick: Netflix users have only about a week to watch Fox’s “24,” the real-time thriller starring Kiefer Sutherland, before the series is removed from the streaming service in the U.S.

Netflix’s rights to “24″ — 202 episodes in all — expire April 1. That comes a little more than a month before Fox is set to bring Sutherland’s superagent Jack Bauer back to TV with “24: Live Another Day,” an event series set to bow May 5 with a two-hour special.

But Netflix’s loss will be Amazon’s gain, as the online retailer will continue to offer the past seasons of ”24″ to members of its Prime Instant Video service after April 1, letting fans binge-watch before the premiere of the new season on TV.

It’s not clear whether Amazon will become the exclusive SVOD distributor of the series or whether it will be one of multiple partners. Nor would the companies say whether Amazon will obtain SVOD rights to “24: Live Another Day.” An Amazon rep declined to comment and a rep for 20th Century Fox Television Distribution, which distributes “24,” declined to comment on its deal with Amazon. (Fox Broadcasting referred inquiries to 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.)

Amazon first added “24″ to Prime Instant Video through a Fox deal announced in September 2011.

An Amazon exclusive SVOD rights deal for “24″ would follow other pacts in that vein, as the Internet retailing giant builds a more robust lineup to take on Netflix in the category.

Amazon recently reached a new deal with 20th Century Fox Television for multiple shows and, as part of that, FX series “The Americans” became available exclusively to Prime customers Feb. 6 — before season two of the Cold War-era thriller debuted Feb. 26 on the cabler.

In addition, under Amazon’s deal with NBCUniversal, season one of NBC’s “Hannibal” became available on Prime Instant Video about a month before that show’s second run returned to the Peacock. And Amazon’s pact with BBC Worldwide North America made season one of supernatural thriller “Orphan Black” exclusively available on the SVOD service ahead of that show’s sophomore debut on BBC America.

A Netflix rep confirmed that “24″ will roll off the streaming service April 1, but declined to provide specifics of its licensing deal with the studio. Netflix will continue to offer DVD rentals of “24″ through its separate DVD-by-mail subscription service.

The past seasons of “24″ also will be available for purchase on electronic sell-through services including Amazon Instant Video and Apple iTunes.

Amazon this month announced that it is raising the price of its Prime free-shipping program for U.S. members, from $79 to $99 per year. But the company has said rising content-licensing costs for Prime Instant Video did not figure into that price hike.

New comic book series brings fans up to speed on Jack Bauer before 24: Live Another Day

Four years will have passed when we catch up with Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day and given what can happen in 24 mere hours, we’re in dire need of an update on our agent-turned-fugitive’s comings and goings.

But while we’re used to seeing Jack realised on our screens by actor Kiefer Sutherland, our much-needed recap is to come in the form of a comic book series titled 24: Underground and published by IDW Publishing.

Acting as a prequel to Live Another Day, the collection of comics will pick up where the final series of the television show left off back in 2010. Debuting next month, it promises to offer fans a detailed look at the events leading up to Live Another Day.

Behind the new project are writer Ed Brisson and former Alias and Manhunter artist, Michael Gaydos. “Ed burst onto the comics scene with the sci-fi thriller Comeback, which was heavy on plot and adventure, a style that fits nicely with an established property such as 24,” said series editor Denton J. Tipton.

“We’ve paired the rising star with veteran artist Michael Gaydos whose draftsmanship and storytelling skills are second to none. Buckle up for a high-octane tale of Jack Bauer’s missing years!”

Now, while he’s famous for his brooding presence on screen, this is not the first time Jack Bauer has appeared in print… At the height of the television show’s’ success, IDW began producing comics with 24: One Shot, a 48-page graphic novella, first appearing in 2004.

Speaking of the resurrected series, IDW president Greg Goldstein said, “24 was one of IDW’s earliest successes with licensed comics and the show’s stature has grown immensely since then. Returning to the world of 24 in comics, in conjunction with this highly anticipated return to TV, makes perfect sense.”

Written by David Fury (Lost) and Howard Gordon (Homeland), Live Another Day is set and shot entirely in London and will centre around a major terrorist threat to the President of the United States. The 12-part series will mark the first time Bauer has been seen on our screens since the show ended back in 2010 after eight nail-biting series. First airing in the States on May 5, Live Another Day will come to the UK on Sky1 shortly afterwards. Take a look at the trailer below…

‘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.
