It can be tempting to react to the never-ending torrent of remakes, reboots, sequels, and spinoffs with a knee-jerk groan. Truthfully, though, that’s not always fair. Creed was a spinoff-reboot-sequel combo that restored the long-running Rocky series to its former glory. Ditto The Force Awakens for Star Wars. On the TV side, Ash vs. Evil Dead and Fargo have both managed to recapture the spirit of their respective originals, while also bringing something new to the table.

Kiefer Sutherland has indicated that he may be done with Jack Bauer, even as Fox keeps insisting there could be more 24. Well, it turns out those two statements aren’t mutually exclusive — because Fox is considering making the next installment without him.
That said, Fox is hopeful Sutherland will want to return eventually. The latest pitch includes an opportunity for Sutherland to come back, should he change his mind. More on the possibility of a 24 without Kiefer Sutherland after the jump. Read More »
