Kiefer Sutherland revealed that he cried while addressing the crew to say thank you for their many years together on ’24.’ For those of you who don’t already know, I have a huge crush on Kiefer Sutherland, and the thought of this bad boy coming to tears makes me think I can break him in after all. It’s hard to believe this is the same guy that my good friend saw at a bar and said, “Hey, you’re Kiefer Sutherland aren’t you?” At which point Kiefer replied with a big loud burp in my friend’s face. Immediately after writing this, I will forward this story along to my friend in hopes that he’ll forget the burp and approve my crush. Keep your fingers crossed.
’24’ producer, Howard Gordon, reveals to Entertainment Weekly, that fans should be patient with the Dana Walsh story line. He says that there are only so many stories to tell, so it is not really fair to criticize the mole plot. The funny thing is, he didn’t really say that the story would improve, he only asked fans to be forgiving. I’m not sure how a ’24’ movie will turn out, considering Gordon seems to be saying that they are already out of gas. Maybe it’s time to bring in some fresh writers.

After much speculation, it’s been confirmed that the eighth season of ’24’ is the last. The last episode will air on May 24th. Kiefer Sutherland and executive producer Howard Gordon also nixed rumors that NBC might house the show, saying that they were both ready to call it quits. On a brighter note, Sutherland confirmed that a ’24’ film is in the works, and that the last season of the show lead into an upcoming film.
Things are looking up for ’24’ fans. Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that NBC is looking to pick up the series, an if they don’t, it’s highly possible that Fox with make a ’24’ movie. The only thing for certain is that the film won’t be made until the series ends. Sounds like a win-win to me!
This season may be the last for ’24.’ Fox has yet to renew the series, and Kiefer Sutherland’s contract is up at the end of season 8. Renegotiating Sutherland’s contract could be pricey, and Fox may not want to front the bill. Sutherland claims that his decision to remain with the series has nothing to do with his contract, and everything to do with whether the show will maintain its artistic integrity moving forward. My guess? It’s a little of both. Rumors are swirling that if Fox does not renew the show, it could move to NBC. We will find out soon enough. ’24’ fans are used to biting their nails in anticipation anyways.
