Fox Developing a ’24’ Spinoff Series Without Jack Bauer
Just when we thought “24” TV series is over, out came news about a new spinoff series from its home network, FOX! Read below for the full details.
According to TV.com, the network is developing a new spinoff series based on “24,” but it was reported that Jack Bauer will not be in it. The spinoff would be about a new “twenty-something male terrorist hunter” will be working alongside a veteran female agent.
It was also reported that the agent won’t be Yvonne Strahovski’s Kate Morgan who was introduced in “24: Live Another Day,” as per TV Line. There is actually no plan of having Jack Bauer be the main star of the spinoff series, but that doesn’t mean that she couldn’t appear in it as a guest star.
In fact, Keifer Sutherland has already said that he’s not going back to it last year when he was interviewed by the The Telegraph and said, “Me, I don’t see going back to it,” when asked if he still wants to continue playing Jack Bauer.
It will also be a limited series just like “24: Live Another Day,” but there is a possibility that it could a long-term property for the network if it is successful.
There’s one thing that won’t change, though – its real-time concept, which is a tradition of the show ever since.
Manny Coto and Evan Katz of “24: Live Another Day” will serve as writers and executive producers of the upcoming spinoff.
