I'm not a fan of Tony or Chloe but i'm not against the idea of a new character being lead for a season, as long as it isn't either of them.

FOX aired a fairly successful revival of "24" in summer 2014, with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and Co. stopping a terrorist plot in London in "24: Live Another Day." During the 2015 FOX upfronts press call, Dana Walden and Gary Newman, chairmen and CEOs of the Fox Television Group, revealed that another edition of "24" is in development.

"We have been developing another version of '24,' but it's still fairly early in the development process," says Newman. "So there just would be nothing we can tell you at this time other than we are working on something."

I'd be happy with a Yvonne Strahovski spin-off, so long as eventually we get Tony breaking Jack out of Russia :datass:

Another 'version' of 24 sounds like a Bauer-less continuation of the series to me. And to be honest, I'm not sure how much of his story there is left to tell. I wouldn't mind returning to the less bombastic roots of the series with a new cast and lead.

24 Spinoff at Fox Would Revolve Around a New Male Character

Jack Bauer is passing the torch stopwatch.

Fox is developing a 24 spinoff that would revolve around a new twentysomething male terrorist hunter, , franchise overlord Howard Gordon confirmed to TVLine Sunday at the Critics Choice Television Awards.

While there are no current plans for Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack to appear, it’s entirely possible his iconic character could pop in and out on a guest-star basis.

The project would find the new male antihero working alongside an older, more seasoned female agent (not Yvonne Strahovski’s Kate Morgan, although she also may also appear). It would also launch as a limited series, similar to last year’s acclaimed 24: Live Another Day, but I’m told the offshoot could easily become a long-term property for Fox.

24: LAD vets Manny Coto and Evan Katz will serve as writers and EPs.

They should do what True Detective and Fargo are doing and have each season be a unique cast. It would really increase the suspense and surprise when you don't know much about the characters each year. Anyone can die. Anyone could be a mole. Anything can happen.

I like the idea of Jack guest appearances. The doorbell would go, and he'd be there, and the live studio audience would whoop and holler. And he'd say damnit a couple of times, catching the camera's eye as he does so.

Fox orders new 24 pilot, wants diverse actor to star

Producers seeking nonwhite actor to replace Kiefer Sutherland


It’s official: Fox is making a new version of 24.

Also official: The reboot will have an all-new cast, with producers currently seeking an African-American actor to take over for longtime series star Kiefer Sutherland.

Fox has ordered a pilot for 24: Legacy, a new series starter that contains many of the hallmarks of the original action hit that launched in 2001 and ran for nine seasons on Fox: “The pilot will feature an all-new cast of characters and retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with each episode representing one hour of an eventful day.” Original producers Howard Gordon, Manny Coto and Evan Katz will return as executive producers.

But that means Jack Bauer (Sutherland) has firmly walked off into the sunset. Sutherland has recently been cast in a new ABC thriller called Designated Survivor, where he’ll play a man suddenly handed the presidency after a catastrophic attack during the State of the Union address.

The 24 reboot is about a military hero, “Eric Carter,” who returns to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask the Counter Terrorist Unit for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

The pilot, filming this winter, has not yet been cast, but the process is underway. We’re hearing producers are specifically seeking an African-American actor for the role, though Fox Television Chairman and CEO Dana Walden and Gary Newman suggested a Latino actor could be considered as well. “We wanted [the star] to be as different from Jack Bauer as possible, whether that’s an African-American or a Latino actor,” Walden said, with Newman adding: “As envisioned, the lead character would be diverse, so that will be our first effort in casting. As always, we’re going to cast the best actor we can find for the role. As you can imagine, bringing 24 back, we want to really try to create some distinction and make this feel different than Jack Bauer’s 24, so having a diverse actor in that lead role I think would be helpful in doing that.”

A series order would be a 12-episode arc, like the 2014 revival Live Another Day, rather than the strict real-time 24-episode format of the original series. “That’s something we discussed for years, ‘It’s 24 — it has to be 24 episodes,’ ” Walden said. “I don’t think any of us believe that a 24-episode arc in this day and age is the way to go.”

In another switch from the original series, the show will focus less on a lone wolf lead and is more of a “two-hander,” with the Carter character paired with a female co-lead.

“There’s also a female co-lead who is a former head of CTU,” said Fox Television Chairman and CEO Dana Walden at the Television Critics Association in Pasadena on Friday. “It doesn’t feel like it is fully replicating the original in terms of how much Jack Bauer carried by himself, but it’s a very prominently featured lead.”

Walden also revealed to reporters there will be a time jump in the show’s storyline and that Legacy will deal with sleeper cells radicalizing Americans. “It’s a new CTU, a new cast of characters,” she said. “It’s a completely different story in terms of the special ops groups that we’re focusing on. It’s a very contemporary feeling story about the potential to activate new sleeper cells in the United States and radicalizing Americans. It’s a whole new story. There are nods in the pilot to prior CTU agents, there are a couple photos that will feel reminiscent of the original, but no ongoing [returning] characters.”

24 Legacy's 'New Jack': Walking Dead's Corey Hawkins to Star in Fox Reboot

Corey Hawkins is about to experience the day from hell.

The Straight Outta Compton actor — who’s currently recurring on The Walking Dead as Heath — has landed the starring role in 24: Legacy, Fox’s in-the-works reboot of the seminal real-time thriller.

Hawkins will portray Eric Carter, a strong and smart former Army Ranger who finds himself pulled back into action as his past comes looking for him. He eventually turns to CTU for help in saving his life and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

“There’s a time jump, a new organization, a completely different story,” Fox co-chairman and CEO Dana Walden teased last week. “It’s a contemporary story about the potential to activate sleeper cells in the United States. There are nods in the pilot to prior CTU agents, but no ongoing characters.”

I'll happily get behind this. Though it should probably be Idris 'the answer to every question' Elba.

Though not sure how he'd fit in, also being Bond and also being Roland Deschain :lol:

’24: Legacy’ Sets Miranda Otto As Female Lead

Following her showy season-long arc on the recent fifth season of Homeland, Miranda Otto is reuniting with Homeland executive producer Howard Gordon on 24: Legacy. Otto has been tapped as the female lead opposite Corey Hawkins in the Fox pilot, which reboots the 24 franchise with brand new characters.

Otto will play Rebecca Ingram, the blazing smart former head of CTU. Now married to Senator John Donovan, Rebecca is struggling with second thoughts about having left the counterterrorism agency.

I don't believe for a second that Bauer won't appear in this.
