Jack is Back! But Could ’24’ Keep On Living After ‘Live Another Day’?

Jack Bauer came bounding back to our screens last night in ’24:Live Another Day’, but is the limited event series a final farewell to our hero? Maybe not, as co-creator Robert Cochran has been telling E! news that this might not be the end of Jack Bauer.

Speaking at the show’s premiere, Cochran said that if ‘Live Another Day’ is successful we could expect to see more Bauer on our screens in the future.  "I think if this does well, I can't see any reason not to do another 12,” he told the news channel.

The show, which had ended in 2010, was originally going to be resurrected for a movie but when that idea fell through it was finally decided that Jack would come back home to the small screen once again.

Although the film idea never came to fruition, a movie could still be in Bauer’s future as Cochran stated it was still “possible.” However, he then added that the real time format of ’24’ lends itself to TV better saying, “I'll take whatever happens,” then adding, “but I'd like to see it come back on TV.”

Actress Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Chloe O’Brian on the show, also feels ’24' has more life left in it, saying, “I can't imagine that there wouldn't be a little bit more now that they've gone through the trouble of bringing it back."

As for star Kiefer Sutherland, he’s admitted he was “massively” nervous about reprising his role as Jack Bauer, revealing he spent months,”scared to death”, thinking “why would we open this up again.” The actor also added that he was yet to suffer an on-set injury this time around, escaping so far with “just a couple of cuts.”

'24' consists of 12 episodes this time and sees Bauer now on the run in London. Alongside its Fox premiere last night, UK viewers were also able to watch it on Sky 1 this morning at 1am. For those who couldn't stay up, it will be repeated tomorrow evening at 9pm.
