24 canceled fox Fox Officially Cancels 24   Goodbye Jack Bauer

After 9 years, 8 seasons and 192 episodes, the hit Fox drama, 24 has been officially canceled. While rumors have been running rampant for weeks pointing to the show’s cancellation, it wasn’t until today that we received word from someone connected to the show. Former 24 executive producer, Jon Cassar, broke the news via his Twitter page.

News from the 24 set,the crew has been told that 24 has come to an end. There will b no season 9. Its been a great run, thanx all 4 watching

Screen Rant actually received word from a reliable source yesterday informing us of 24 being officially canceled, but we were unable to confirm the information with anyone directly associated with the show. So, instead of running with it, we decided to wait until more information was released. While a tweet from a former show executive isn’t exactly an officially announcement, in this era of social networking and micro-blogging, it’s pretty close.

While I’m sure many of you 24 fans are sad to see the show go, remember that this isn’t necessarily the end of Jack Bauer. No, I’m not trying to say something sappy like, “He’ll always be in your heart!” I’m referencing the fact that Fox is still working on a 24 movie and as we’ve been told numerous times, in order for the film to move forward, the series would have to end.

So, instead of thinking this as an end of an era (even though it is), think of it as a new beginning. Unless, of course, another network picks up the series.

We’ve recently reported that NBC might pick up 24 if Fox decided to cancel it. While NBC has yet to hint at their decision, one way or another, word is that “there’s definitely some interest.”

When it comes down to it, technically 24 has been canceled, but I’d be lying if I said this was the last we’ll see of Jack Bauer. Besides, after having so many bad days, doesn’t Jack deserve some peaceful R&R with family and friends?

What do you think of 24 being canceled? Will you continue to watch the series if it switches to NBC? Would you go see a 24 movie?

  11. Why would u wanna shut down such an inspirational subject
    Come on guys. We need jack Bauer in our lives. Not because of the fiction..but because of the mere ideology of the greater good. Guys.if it were in my hand I would make it compulsory for every law enforcement agency in every country to follow the ideology of the greater good.

    Guys I am proud to say that I have seen the entire 8 seasons for more than 50 times. Not because its good… just because it inspires…

    Please do continue.

    Special mention to keifer’s performance as jack
    .. you are my hero

    I wish I had a friend like Chloe

    Please continue 24.

  12. I wish Fox or NBC made another 24 because its the best series in the world by far and its sad just to see it fade, if i were jon cassar i would most certainly make another one its the most inspirational series i have ever seen and most probably the Best series ive ever seen i really miss the series and i want it BACK!

    j’ai toujours envie de revoir ces films surtout 24 heures. Jack bauer c’est le meilleur…. Love it !!! Love !!! i can’t say this enough ….

  14. damn, i’m just starting to watch 24 season 4 and my god, this is better than homeland(no offense), i mean jack bauer is every one of us want to be *(if you want to be terrorist well thats your problem). a man that doesn’t mind getting his hand dirty for the safety of his nation and daughter nor he care of his life to obliterate the enemy into pieces *LoL, like Thomas Jefferson once said “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

  15. just finished 24 jack baur is the legend my fav tv show ever we want 24 back……………………

  16. Fox should officially inform us the fate of 24 plse plse

  17. I love This show. Just finished all 8 sesong. We Want Jack Bauer back on Tv now!!!!!!

  18. Looks like it’s coming back for a 12 episode run. So much for tweets.

  19. have been watching 24 from inception, am thrilled about the movie,we appeal to fox to consider producing the last season 9. tanx

  20. Am a fan of 24 i love this film for the technology being display i love the production by Jack Bauer,it is a film you need to see the end if a new producer pick it up am going to be happy i want to see the come back of Jack Bauer,waiting……………………..

  21. it wasnt cancelled though. well not in the traditional sense. it was ended by those who made it. like senfeld was ended by jerry seinfeld himself, 24′s creative people including keifer sutherland all agreed it was time. They realise now they were wrong and are bringing it back. I read an article that suggested there was no tension around jack bauer because you knew he was gonna survive, First of all i’m not sure that’s the case and anyway is that really why we watch 24? i think not. many of us love the action sequences and seeing how he’ll get out of any particular situation. but having recently rewatched the entire series on netflix again and knowing that jack bauer survives all the way through the series i can say that i still get drawn in, i’m still on edge when the very scary chang has jack kidnapped and put on a slow boat to china. The acting is that good that you cannot help but forget you’ve seen these episodes before and you just let it take you where it wants. it still works. looking forward to :live another day. chuffed that mary lyn rajskub is on board, will miss bill buchanan, tony almeida, and curtis who should never have been killed off, that was a big mistake in my view. curtis was cool.

  22. As I read your requirements about no profanity or personal attacks I myself am personally offended. For how many terrorists i have killed I can say what I want. On May 5th 2014 I will come back with a vengeance on every living soul who believe that Jack Bauer was gone forever I was simply visiting Osama Bin Laden with my friends mustang and sally I caught him in the middle of his youtube video when i shot him in the face the video was never uploaded because it is evidence of my involvement therefore i gave credit to seal team 6 and the u.s. government. Thank you for your time. I will continue to keep America safe, God Bless.


  23. I really, really wish you guys would continue the 24 series. It’s the best and most intriguing TV Show I’ve ever seen in quite a while. Guys please don’t and help out the 24 fans…
