Jack Is Back! 24 Set To Return For One Off Series

 

Fox have announced that they are planning on bringing back the hugely successful series 24 for a one-off series, with many of the original cast and crew returning for the new series. Kiefer Sutherland, who has just had his current series Touch axed by Fox, will of course be returning as anti-terrorist agent Jack Bauer, with original show producer Howard Gordon also coming back.

The series will not be following the orignal format however, because rather than feature 24 episodes per season, to signify each hour of the day, this season will only feature 12 episode. The new show run, officially titled 24: Live Another Day, will jump certain hours, but will still cover a 24 hour time period.

The show lasted for 192 episodes and a TV movie in its original run from 2001 until 2010, with rumours that a big screen adaption could emerge from the series constantly dogging the those involved in the show since it ended. Although most of the people involved in the show were keen for a movie version of the film, including it's star Kiefer Sutherland, the return as a mini-series may spell the end of any chances of a movie happening. Still, stranger things have happened.

In 2011, Gordon told The Hollywood Reporter that conversations were "definitely happening" to bring 24 to the big-screen, however by 2012 the 'definately happening' became 'definately not happening' as the film's producers failed to come up with an agreeable budget for the film.

The new series will air in May 2014.
