Sutherland Thinks “24” Is Done and Dusted

Following eight seasons and this year’s equally successful event series revival, it looks like the sun has finally set on Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer character from FOX’s “24”.

Talking with The Telegraph, Sutherland thinks the character has been retired from the screen and doesn’t see himself coming back for either a film or another event series:

“Me, I don’t see going back to it. We had set out to do 12 episodes [of Live Another Day] to end the show and deal with some of the past history of the show. It was also an irresistible opportunity to go shoot in England. So for all of those reasons it made sense to do that last season.”

Shortly after “24: Live Another Day” ended its run in July, the show’s executive producer Jon Cassar claimed that the previously talked about movie spin-off of the show was still being planned. Nothing further has been heard about it since.

Whilst Sutherland sounds down about the possibility, he doesn’t completely rule a revival out: “I think I said the same thing at the end of Season 8. So I would hate to be held to that.”
