’24’ May Return To Fox As Limited Series: Report

Kiefer Sutherland in talks to reprise lead role

One surprising news tidbit emerging during a day filled with series orders from the Big Four has to do with a show that left the airwaves three years ago: Fox’s “24.”

Fox is eying a limited series revival of the real-time thriller, according to a report on Deadline. Kiefer Sutherland, who toplined the serialized program, is in talks to reprise his role as covert agent Jack Bauer. Sutherland may have time on his hands now that it appears his Fox drama series “Touch” will not be renewed for a third season.

“24” ran eight seasons on Fox. It also picked up 20 Emmys during its run, including best drama series in 2006. Rumors swirled last year that the 20th Century Fox TV/Imagine TV series would inspire a feature film with Sutherland attached, but plans never came to fruition and the movie concept was canned.

Skein had its series finale in May 2010.
