Has the clock restarted on 24?
The franchise has been cancelled twice in the past four years with 24: Live Another Day and 24: Legacy both captured by the reaper, but FOX is considering yet another revival/spinoff according to chairman Gary Newman, per Deadline:
“I think terrorism is uniquely suited for 24 because the timeliness and urgency is built in. You could be in the medical field or the legal field where a clock is ticking and something has to happen. But I wouldn’t bet against terrorism.”
Newman notes that a 24 revival remains “valid” despite original star Kiefer Sutherland ruling himself out of any return:
“Clearly, Kiefer (Sutherland) is not coming back… If he were available and wanted to, that would be pretty good. But we think that the franchise is still really valid.”
Would you watch another season of 24? Should the franchise be cancelled for all eternity?
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancellation escape hatch for any sign of life…
