Could '24' be on the way back?
Jack Bauer is coming back. Basically. At the 2014 Summer TCA Press Tour on Sunday, Peter Price, chairman and CEO of Fox Networks Group was quizzed on whether '24' could return for a new season - and it sounds like pretty good news.

Rice said he's "always been a fan" of the show and said he thought the comeback "was fantastic." However, he confirmed that the network hasn't "had a specific conversation about it coming back yet. I'm sure we will in the future. It's a wonderful franchise.
"Kiefer, Evan [Katz], Howard [Gordon] and Manny [Coto] did a great job this year," he continued. "When you look at the show itself, I think it has many more stories to tell, but I think we need to sit down and talk to the creators about it."
Elsewhere, Rice spent time speaking about Bones, highlighting its importance on the Fox schedule and noting, "I hope this year's not the last year. It's a fantastic series."
Rice was pretty open about American Idol's struggles, saying, "If I have a criticism of the show for us last year, we haven't found in the last two years a group of kids who have captured the imagination of the public. They've been really talented kids, but for whatever reason, there hasn't been that catalyst behind the show."
Would you like see '24' back for a tenth season or is it time for Jack Bauer to head off into retirement?
