'24' Canceled

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 26th 2010 8:05PM
24There's been a lot of talk lately about whether or not FOX would renew '24' for another year or if NBC could pick up the show if FOX didn't want it. Now here's the answer to at least the first of those questions: '24' has been canceled.

Star Mary Lynn Rajskub announced on Twitter that this is the last season of the long-running show. No word yet on if NBC still wants the show or if FOX is still interested in the big-screen movie that they were interested in doing at one point. I'm sure we'll hear more about all of this in the coming days.

Update: NBC won't pick up the show, but they're making a big-screen film.

What shows arent the same after awhile look at lost. Its called lost because you become lost. To try to use common sense is rediculous. Cant happen in 24 hours dahh who cares. Its great drama for an hour. The best ever was when Jack was tied to a chair being interagated and bites the guys neck thats what got everybody into all these vampires. LOL

I'm so glad to see this horrible show cancelled. No TV show has contributed more to Americans' collective desire to get rid of their civil liberties than "24" has. Good riddance.

Only question is: who is gonna pick up the 9-11 retribution fantasy entertainment market dollars now?

First 24, then hopefully Flash Forward. One down and one to go before we're Brannon Braga free.

Most likely the producers saw the topic as having a long life but truth be told, Sutherland may be growing wearing of a more hectic schedule above anything else.

I'm smelling a spin-off. It'll be a lot like Thomas and Sarah (from Upstairs, Downstairs).

Don't let Brannon Braga write the finale...or else he'll come up with this idea:

President Palmer and Jack Bauer calls an end to a simulation of what would happen if he doesn't serve two full terms as President.

Should've let Jack die last season from the radiation poisoning, and then we'd never had to suffer through season 8.

Seems to be lots of different versions floating around. I saw this...

"In a joint decision made by 24's star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland, executive producer and showrunner Howard Gordon, Twentieth Century Fox Television, Imagine Entertainment and Fox Broadcasting Company, it was determined that the acclaimed series will end its remarkable eight-season run. Jack Bauer's last day on FOX will conclude when the final two hours of "Day Eight" air Monday, May 24 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). As the countdown to the series' climactic conclusion races on, the final 11 hours will air uninterrupted Mondays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. "
