24 spin-off

Fox has had success reviving some of its classic shows like The X-Files, 24 and Prison Break. 24: Live Another Day returned with Kiefer Sutherland and then 24: Legacy introduced a new cast. The original Prison Break cast returned for a revival as well. Ever since, Fox Television Critics Association executive sessions were filled with promises of new development on 24 and Prison Break. But that was before Disney bought Fox.

24 remake

Last summer, previous Fox network presidents Dana Walden and Gary Newman said that two 24 spinoffs were in the works. Walden and Newman knew that they would not necessarily remain at the network after the Disney/Fox merger goes through and as the final merger looms, Charlie Collier has taken over as Fox CEO. Today, he told the Television Critics Association that no iteration of 24 is currently in the works.

24 remake

In a reversal of so many adaptations we see in Hollywood today, a popular U.S. show is getting the J-drama treatment. 24, the apex of post-9/11 TV created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, is being remade into a Japanese TV series.

24 spin-off

Earlier this week, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Fox was planning a 24 prequel series featuring a young Jack Bauer, the character played by Kiefer Sutherland for nine seasons in the show’s original run. Today at the Television Critics Association press tour, Fox Television Group President and CEO Dana Walden confirmed this and announced a second 24 spin-off in the works, one that moves from the world of counter-terrorism to a courtroom. 

“The other is a whole new take on the franchise set in the legal arena,” Walden said.

24 Prequel Series

FOX must be really desperate to bring 24 back from the dead. After all, they’ve already tried with the limited series 24: Live Another Day in 2014 and the series reboot 24: Legacy in 2017. Back in May, FOX’s upfronts presentation included discussion about the return of 24 in a couple of different ways. One was a legal thriller about a female lawyer racing against the clock to unravel a conspiracy, and the other was under wraps. Now, it sounds like we know what that other idea for rebooting 24 is going to be.

Instead of trying to expand the universe of 24 or create a spin-off with a different premise based around the real-time construct of the show, FOX hopes to resurrect the action thriller series with an origin story about famed Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer (originally played by Kiefer Sutherland).

That’s right, this is going to be a 24 prequel series, and that sounds like a bad idea. Read More »

The clock keeps on ticking for 24, Fox’s real-time thriller series that refuses to die. After eight seasons, a revival season, and a reboot series, the show is coming back once more in a completely different form: a legal thriller about a female lawyer racing against the clock to unravel a conspiracy.

The Next 24 Season Will Have a New Cast

During their executive session with the Television Critics Association, Chairman and CEO of Fox Television Group Dana Walden and Fox Broadcasting President David Madden spoke about the future of 24. This year’s 24: Legacy headed by Corey Hawkins will not continue, but the execs say they always intended to make 24 an anthology with new casts.

24 legacy cancelled

It looks like 24: Legacy has lost the race against time. Fox cancelled the waning reboot of the mega-popular 24 series originally anchored by Kiefer Sutherland, taking away Legacy star Corey Hawkins‘ chance to catch up with Jack Bauer.

But while that’s the end of 24: Legacy‘s time, it’s not the end for the 24 franchise. Fox is already looking to develop a completely new incarnation of the series — without any Legacy characters.
