The Jack Bauer Power Hour is back! Minus the Jack Bauer!
That’s right boys and girls, it looks like Fox is getting back on the 24 bandwagon with the new 24: Legacy series just being ordered to pilot. However, this won’t be the good old 24 that we’ve all grown accustomed to in the last decade and a half. This one will have two new leads and NO recurring original characters. That’s right, it looks like Jack Bauer hasn’t returned from Russia yet.

Well, rumor was out last week, and now it’s confirmed. We talked about it Friday, but today Fox confirmed it, 24 is coming back. The 12-episode run, title 24: Live Another Day, will begin in May of 2014 and no doubt feature Jack killing lots of bad guys. This shortened schedule should prove beneficial to a more focused story, though I would expect the ratio of Mountain Lion attacks per episode to drop…

Kiefer Sutherland is in talk to reprise his role as the biggest hardass on television. That’s right kids, 24 might be getting a 9th season after attempts to convert the character into a star of the big screen have faltered, producers obviously figure it’s better to take Jack back to TV than let the character rot.

America’s greatest hero is back. No, I’m not talking about Captain America, or Neil Armstrong, or even Audie Murphy. I’m referring of course to Jack Bauer. And yes, I know he is played by a Canadian actor, but nobody’s perfect. Kiefer Sutherland has announced that everyone’s favorite indestructible Special Agent will be back next summer. However this time, he’s moving to the big screen.
There really isn’t much info out yet except that it’s supposed to start shooting in January and should be released sometime next year. Aside from Jack himself, it’s not clear who else might pop up, but as far as I’m concerned, the only other person that needs to appear my favorite computer analyst and yours, Chloe O’Brien!
The show ran for 8 seasons, and I was a huge fan from start to finish. I’d be remiss however, not to admit that the first 4 seasons were considerably better than the last 4. The show just didn’t have the same feel after David Palmer…
But despite declining viewer ship, as well a poor reviews towards the end, 24 still entertained the Hell out of me and I do miss it. Truth be told I wasn’t heartbroken when it got canceled. The show had sort of run it’s course, and how many shows now get 8 seasons to do so? Plus there was always talk of this movie happening so I didn’t really feel as though I was losing some of my favorite characters as with other canceled shows.
Now originally when they talked about this, they did so in a manner that would’ve exceeded ‘Awesome Levels’ by so much movie projectors would’ve exploded. One of the early drafts for the movie was titled: Die Hard 24/7. It would have featured both John McClane and Jack Bauer thus making my head explode along with the projector.
I am happy though they’ve decided to keep the franchises separate. This way we 2 get movies instead of just one. With that, let me just say I’m very excited for this movie.
