Could '24' come back to Fox?
Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer might be back on TV before we ever see that long-awaited "24" movie.
According to reports, Fox is in early - emphasis on early, here - talks to have Sutherland return as Agent Bauer in a limited run of "24."
The network's said to be working on creating more event miniseries, and it's considering a renewed "24" as part of that effort.
There aren't any deals in place yet, but if "24" did make a return to TV it would do so with executive producer Howard Gordon. Gordon, who's said to have pitched the idea of a limited edition of "24," moved on to the acclaimed "Homeland" after "24" ended an eight-season run on Fox in 2010.
The EP told CNN in 2012 that there was still a glimmer of hope for that movie, saying that both Fox and Sutherland were still interested in making it happen, as far as he knew.
Perhaps they could channel that desire to a shorter TV return instead, particularly now that Sutherland's other Fox drama, "Touch," is not expected to return for a third season.

Gotta love that Keifer! Only man to ever make "the mullet" look cool...
I would be thrilled to see "24" back for another season or 2 or 3 or 4 – LOVED that show – used to revolve my Monday nites around Prison Break and 24 – The Following with Kevin Bacon has sure been a nailbiter – love all the suspense.

I don't care if Touch doesn't return, but, I hope they have a ending to it & not leave us hanging.
I agree with you on that one. Touch is just a little too slow moving for me. I mainly watched it because of Kiefer Sutherland. Kiefer's character is just too much of a wus for me in Touch. I am really excited to hear that they may bring back 24, though. That was a great series.
