Culture: “24” producers decide 192 hours of Jack Bauer is enough

  • Fox is ditching the series, but a movie could be forthcoming. Jack Bauer fans, prepare to let go. Fox’s signature action series is going to end at the end of this season, capping a key period in the network’s history. Part of it was declining ratings, but a bigger part was that eight seasons of the hour-by-hour format got a little formulaic and difficult to keep up. “We’ve really had what feels like our last day,” said executive producer Howard Gordon. Kiefer Sutherland may enjoy playing another character – he reportedly spends 10 months a year working on “24.” source
