De 24 franchise zou weleens door kunnen gaan… maar dan zonder Kiefer Sutherland. Tijdens de TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour spraken FOX CEOs/Chairmen Dana Walden en Gary Newman over een mogelijk vervolg van de serie 24, na de in 2014 uitgezonden 24: Live Another Day. Newman zei: “We have no current plans although we’re in discussions with the creative team there. We would love nothing more than to do another 24.”

Walden zei later echter: “We’re thinking 2016 [for the debut]. We heard a really great pitch for the series. Howard [Gordon], Evan [Katz], and Manny [Coto] are all very busy working on development right now. And we don’t want to rush it. 24 is a series where we’ve really taken our time with to develop it. We didn’t want it to be a business agenda, or a development agenda. We want to make sure that the time is right and the story is right. And we were so happy with the last [return to television]. It set such a high bar.”

Ster van de serie Kiefer Sutherland heeft eerder gezegd dat hij op dit moment niet perse ge├»nteresseerd is in een nieuw seizoen. Toen gevraagd werd of FOX de serie voort zou zetten zonder hem zei Walden: “We have discussed this with him, we talk to Keifer all the time. He’s a great creative partner. It’s a possibility that he won’t be in this installment, but he’s very supportive.”

Ze vervolgde: “We’re not talking about continuing the show without him. We’re talking about whether there is one installment that he’s not in. And I think if the storytelling is exciting enough with the real-time element that that show really owns. So many of the production elements that that show really owns. I look at so many of the surrounding elements around Keifer in that last installment and I think it can work. There is a point where Jack Bauer could come into this story and there is a way that this could be the one installment without him.”
