According to Variety, 24’s time is almost up.
The trade magazine claims that 20th Century Fox TV and Fox are ready to end the long-running hit after this season.
Though the network has declined to comment on the speculation, it would not come as a huge surprise.The cost of producing 24 has increased each season while the rating have dropped.
Even if 24 is canceled, there is a possibility that the the franchise will move to the big screen. The team behind the show, including Kiefer Sutherland, have made major strides in recent months toward a 24 movie a la Sex And The City. There’s also talk that the film version would take Jack Bauer to Europe.
Throughout its eight year run, the show has won the Emmy and the Golden Globe awards for best drama and Sutherland has scored both an Emmy and a Globe for best actor. 24 has also received Emmy Awards for writing and directing and last year, Cherry Jones won an Emmy for supporting actress in a drama.
But even with the prospect of a movie, fans aren’t satisfied. They want to see 24 come back for a ninth season. A Facebook page called “Renew 24 for a 9th Season” already has 1575 members and several fans have also joined a Twitter campaign to try to save the show.
But, their efforts may be too late as some are expecting an official announcement from Fox in the next few days.
