As you guys will know by now, I'm a huge fan of 24. Ever since the show ended on an extremely unsatisfying note, I - along with many other fans - have been impatiently waiting for a movie which has been promised and delayed numerous times. Well, Deadline now reports that that Fox are planning to bring it back to the small screen as a limited series. Kiefer Sutherland is said to be in "early talks" to return, while they add that "the idea is to start from scratch with a new story arc that will likely be supervised by former 24 showrunner Howard Gordon.". They're all the details we have for now, but here's hoping that this isn't yet another false alarm for fans desperate to once again hear that iconic clock ticking down. Stay tuned for further updates!

Hey WOMBRAIDER
shove it up your ass.

Any proof that its for racist...i didn't think so . just a jackass lib spouting hate.
DeadManDann - 5/9/2013, 4:35 PM
Hopefully they give it a proper ending, 'cause I wasn't big on Day 8.
AlibiBreakfast - 5/9/2013, 4:36 PM
@WombRaider You're exactly right.
kevberg - 5/9/2013, 4:38 PM
@alibi

You're exactly WRONG. dumbass.
kevberg - 5/9/2013, 4:41 PM
Love how the lib dummies get away with calling people racists with no proof or evidence.

racist against whites or just self hating crybabies?


Great show, hope they have a proper ending written.
AlibiBreakfast - 5/9/2013, 4:45 PM
When a mouth-breathing, right-wing imbecile like @kevberg says I'm wrong, I wear it as a badge of honor.
Irons - 5/9/2013, 4:45 PM
Lol misleading title. About as confirmed as the movie.
kevberg - 5/9/2013, 4:48 PM
@Alibi
when a racist idiot like you speaks..im gonna assume you have a lot of badges.
DeadManDann - 5/9/2013, 4:50 PM
Really not a "Republican" show by any means. That's ridiculous. Anyone who's actually seen enough of the show would tell you that. Besides, half of the villains end up being rich white guys, so stop trying to play the racism card.

DrDoom - 5/9/2013, 5:00 PM
Watch out, political hissy fit.

Regardless, I'd watch it.

@kevberg Yeah, and all my badges come from willfully ignorant, right-wing sock puppets just like you.
BackwardGalaxy - 5/9/2013, 5:04 PM
I mean... a lot of the major villains were white Americans. How is it a racist show?
DEATHbyEXILE - 5/9/2013, 5:05 PM
Gusto goes all out when visiting wal-mart XD
kevberg - 5/9/2013, 5:15 PM
@Alibi@womb

still waiting for you turds to prove the racism?

Ah ... much like pMSNBC, you just pull stuff outta your overly abused asses.
TheTyrantVirus - 5/9/2013, 5:24 PM
Yeah, I'm pretty liberal and I loved 24. Those saying it's racist must have never watched it. As others have pointed out, the bad guys almost always end up being rich white dudes.
113 - 5/9/2013, 5:25 PM
Stop, just stop.


Classic example of a show that had its' time, it's done. Leave it be.


*Unrelated, but the best season was Day 5.
Benjamitesandwich - 5/9/2013, 5:27 PM
I'm on kevberg's side.
thebearjew - 5/9/2013, 5:34 PM
LEVITIKUZ ya people are looney nowadays and they always try to make everything about politics it seems

but i nvr watchd this show it might be neat
Megalith - 5/9/2013, 5:38 PM
This is literally the best news I have heard in eternity.
kevberg - 5/9/2013, 5:40 PM
Day 5 was Good, Day 4 was Awesome...Jack had to let his Girlfriends -ex die or shoot the surgeon...thats intense tv.

Also was it Day 2 where he had to hack off a CTU officials head , just because the Hacker guy told him to?
Megalith - 5/9/2013, 5:47 PM
Okay, what seriously needs to happen is have Tony return so he can redeem himself.
AlibiBreakfast - 5/9/2013, 5:48 PM
This show glorified torture, portrayed liberals as weaklings, & played off post-9/11 fear and anti-Islamic hysteria. Remember the Muslim family being depicted as the next sleeper cell? There's a reason Rush Limbaugh is such a fan of this show.

Look, I didn't want to be that guy being political, but, @kevberg, your politics litterally make me sick. If you want to get the last word to feel like a big man and to compensate for an undoubtedly small anatomy, go right ahead. I'm done with this. Let's get back to comic book movies.

@Josh-My disagreements with your review of IM3 aside,

24 is indeed awesome-am in full agreement there.

I want to see Bauer in Europe like they had wanted to do with the feature film..
JackBauer - 5/9/2013, 5:52 PM
Damn good news but I won't hold my breath.

All the idiots calling the show rascist obviously never watched it. As stated by others, several of the bad guys were white guys. Also, Jack had to protect a muslim head of state from assassination. He also had to kill his partner to protect a former muslim terrorist who was helping them.
Azazel1 - 5/9/2013, 5:56 PM
I do not really see 24 as being that racist at all,in fact, they will often play on this misconception by setting it up so that you think it is the Muslim dude but ends up being the white Christian guy.

Remember the bio-terror one on in season 3 and they think it is that Muslim dude marrying the rich white girl? The sister is obsessed with this. In convinced it is the Muslim guy.

Turns out it is the Dad...
Azazel1 - 5/9/2013, 6:03 PM
What about the dude who wants to assassinate the President and actually detonates the bomb-is one of his staff

The storyline there was the evil Republican dick Cheney types who want the President out because he is too liberal...

That is another point. You can forget the Republican biased show angle theory.

Jack's closes relationship in the show, other than his daughter, was probably with David

Black Liberal democrat President for the first 3 or 4 seasons...
JackBauer - 5/9/2013, 6:10 PM
Azazel1 is correct on all counts.
shelbz - 5/9/2013, 6:10 PM
White liberal here and I f'n loved 24. Bring it back
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 5/9/2013, 6:18 PM
