Topic: 24 reboot without Jack Bauer and the rest of the old cast

Is this a day for bad FOX related news? sad I was at least hoping for Tony spinoff.

A reboot of 24 is still in development, according to Fox chairman and CEO Gary Newman, who offered an update to reporters during the network’s summer press tour.

Manny Coto and Evan Katz are writing the script, with longtime 24 producer Howard Gordon supervising. Though the network hasn’t seen the script yet, Newman said it will center on a new character in the absence of of Jack Bauer. Not that they didn’t try.

“Obviously we would love to have Kiefer [Sutherland] and we went to him first,” said Newman. “It isn’t something he wants to do at this point, but he encouraged us to continue and look for a way to bring the show back.” The network has been weighing the possibility of a Kiefer-less 24 since January.

The familiar clock will be chiming once again in the new series, but as for familiar characters, Newman admitted, “Honestly I don’t know whether we’ll see any old characters or not. It would not surprise me if it’s a total reset in terms of the characters.”

Re: 24 reboot without Jack Bauer and the rest of the old cast

It can be done, as with "The Closer" becoming "Major Crimes" after the star left.

Re: 24 reboot without Jack Bauer and the rest of the old cast

I'll definitely watch it, and see for myself if it's any good.

Re: 24 reboot without Jack Bauer and the rest of the old cast

If they do it, then it has to be with a character completely different to Bauer. If they are a copy, then its not going to fly with me. and The star can never utter the phrase "Don't fight it"

"city morgue, you kill em, we chill em"

Re: 24 reboot without Jack Bauer and the rest of the old cast

Or or they could do a James Bond and Dr. Who approach, with a new Jack Bauer every couple of years?



Ok i'll see myself out.

Yep, definitely no copying, the show will have to stand on its own. There can never be another Jack Bauer.

C'mon, it's a Fox reboot, of course it will be entirely original.

The first season will introduce us to Special Agent Mack Bower, his ex-wife Jeri Bower and his son Tim.  Mack will save the lives of the President and her husband (Mavis and Terry Parma) with the help of his side kick Anthony Alan Maida despite the interference of agency mole and boss Gina Byres.

I remember when there was a point in time when people thought he would one day become Jack's heir apparent... roll
