24 returns with a happy Jack Bauer

24, Jack Bauer

Remember the days when Jack Bauer was happy? We can barely cast our minds back that far. However word is that when 24 returns for season seven, Jack will be happy and somewhat fulfilled after regaining contact with his daughter and grand-daughter.

During the Comic Con panel yesterday Executive producer Manny Coto said:

“[The season] starts with Jack in a place we haven’t seen and that [he] is happy with his daughter and his granddaughter, and it’s really an interesting place because when you see those scenes in the beginning you realize, gosh, we haven’t seen this side of him for so long. There’s always this dread when you’re watching it that this is not going to last and it makes those moments so much more poignant.” Added Kiefer, “[It’s about] trying to figure out how to get Jack back to a place where living mattered. His life had been crushed so badly over the past seven seasons.”

However Renee will return in a much darker place than Jack, Executive producer David Fury said:

“Renee will return within the first few [episodes] and she will be a different person than she was. The hint of the relationship that we put forth in season seven—we will be following through with this season. The season begins with Jack in a happy place ready to start a new life. And when Renee enters the scene, she is a damaged person. But she is someone he decides could be a part of [his] new life.”

As for a possible romantic spark between Jack and Renee, Kiefer said, “That was someone he obviously had very serious feelings for. The desire for season eight is to protect all of the things that would make living worthwhile.”
