Has time run out for ’24’?


Various reports hitting the wires this morning suggest that Fox has decided to end “24” after its current season, the show’s eighth.

The Wrap’s Josef Adalian says that the network has “all but decided to make the current season of the Keifer Sutherland thriller its last,” and adds that sources close to the series confirm “end of life conversations” have begun. Adalian goes so far as to say a formal announcement could arrive later this week.

Variety’s Michael Schneider ran a similar piece.

That’s not to say the “24” franchise is completely dead in the water. In February, Billy Ray (“State of Play,” “Shattered Glass”) was hired to pen a feature-length script in hopes of transitioning Sutherland’s unbreakable hero, Jack Bauer, to the big screen. Reports say Ray’s initial treatment would send Bauer to Europe, which makes sense since the last two seasons have shifted the action from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. and New York City, respectively.

Stay tuned for more reports.
