Terrorism is back in the headlines, from the Boston Marathon bombings to the horrors of the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi.
What pop culture consumers want is the return of Jack Bauer, the fictional terrorism fighter from Fox’s long-running 24. And they may just get their wish. Deadline.com reports Fox is mulling a new, albeit limited, 24 season starring Kiefer Sutherland as TV’s iconic crime fighter.
No deals are in place, but Fox is eying 24 as part of its recent push in limited event series. Since 24 ended its eight-season run on Fox in 2010, there has been an effort to continue the story as a feature, which ultimately didn’t take off.
