When it was announced last year that 24 was going to be returning to FOX with a new limited series, we were pretty excited about the prospect.
But, one thing we didn’t plan for, was how attached we may get to the show. ‘Live Another Day’ simply reminded us all of how amazing the series was when it was originally on air from 2001 to 2010. So, will it return for another season? It’s possible it could do…
At the moment, as you can imagine, nothing is set in stone about another season of 24. It may never happen, but FOX chairman and CEO Peter Rice has said that he’d love the show to return for another run.
Appearing at the 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour today (Sunday, July 20), Rice admitted that he is a huge fan of the drama, but he can’t tell us anything about another season at the minute, as nobody has had ‘the talk’.
Even though that specific conversation hasn’t taken place, Rice is certain that it will happen in the future, as it’s a “wonderful franchise”, and the whole team did an amazing job this year with ‘Live Another Day.
“When you look at the show itself, it has many more stories to tell,” Rice hinted.
The only problem that may stand in the way of the show returning is the cast. Rice noted that Kiefer Sutherland says he considers the latest season to be the final season. Maybe ‘Live Another Day’ was his closure, as he’d been a part of the show since the very beginning, and if it’s going to return for another season next year, it’s going to take some convincing, but I’m sure FOX can do the trick!
