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?

  1. I guess that means they've finished filming Season 8 then… I swear one of these days, when I have money, I'm going to go buy and watch Season 7 and get caught up.

    Shame about that, but it did have to die, one man can only have so many really freakin bad days.

  3. I used to love 24. Then this season started.

    I have no explanation for this show came to be so bad – Who wrote it? Who thought of the ideas? Terrible.

  4. Do you not like this season or just the horrible Freddie Prinze Jr?

  5. They're still filming Season 8. Eriq La Salle (ER) has signed on to appear in the season (now series) finale.

  6. What's the reason for the cancellation? How has it been doing ratings-wise?

  7. No. It's absolutely and clearly the season, it' weak story and even worse subplots. Prinze is the least of the problems.

  8. The ratings have been down, but it still is performing well. The problem is that the budget for the show is too high, plus the fact the Kiefer Sutherland was only under contract until the end of the 8th season.

  9. finally. for me this show died after season 4,i tried watching the seasons that followed but it just seemed like they where redoing everything again and again.

  10. Sad but not unexpected.
    Bring on the movie!

  11. Got it. Thank you for clearing it up. I only watched 1 season and I loved it. I plan on watching the rest. Will be kind of nice watching a complete series (brings back memories of watching 9 seasons of X-files within a few months, good times).

  12. Same here. Plus with the fact that I'm currently living alone, a show like 24 just isn't a fun show to watch by yourself. For me anyway. When I kept hearign season after season, I just couldn't help but think, “Damn! Give the show a rest already, there's nothing more you can do with it anymore”

  14. Sounds like a move Fox would make.

  15. real world = jack wouldnt have lasted past season 4.

    Be like
    we captured who? shoot that f+#%r in the head!!, hes like that dude in the hard die movies, hes like f_$%#n MapGuider. well uh-uh, Not todays Mapguider!

    and then hed be capped in the head.

  16. Not to mention the fact that there really isn't anyplace new for the story to go. Jack and CTU have saved thousands upon thousands of lives in more ways and more times than I can remember. Even the writers were basically saying they were out of ideas. It hit its stride in season 2 and hit its zenith in season 5. Now it's just going throught the motions. I realized the other night that I still watch it only becasue that's what I'm used to doingon Monday nights. That being said, I will still miss it.

  17. 24 has been a really great series for me. Ive watched all 7 episodes more than once and im still captivated by Jack. Cant wait to see the movie.

  18. I Love This Show! Sad to see it go.

  19. I like the 24. I wish will be more seasons to watch. I enjoy watching the show. Even Dad at his 81years he enjoy watching.I wish they not canceled but continue to move on with the movie. Jack Bauer is an exelent actor. Also the rest of them too.

  20. Please NBC pick up where fox left off did its a great show. kiefer sutherland is a great actor if nothing else if Charlie Sheen screws up which i hope he dosent(hes great) maybe he can replace him but kiefer needs to be in a TV series he is agreat actor like his dad.

  21. Love Jack Baur,…hope NBC picks it up,…or I hope they make a movie,…either way I’m a Jack Baur fan and would like to see him
    in any way do some more,…thanks for the memories.
