TVLine is reporting that FOX is currently in development on a spin-off to the hit show “24” which would feature a new lead male character in place of Kiefer Sutherland’s extremely popular character Jack Bauer.
According to series showrunner Howard Gordon, the project would find the new male antihero working alongside an older, more seasoned female agent (not Yvonne Strahovski’s Kate Morgan, although she also may also appear). It would also launch as a limited series, similar to last year’s acclaimed 24: Live Another Day. As for Sutherland? There are no current plans for Jack Bauer to appear, but it’s entirely possible his iconic character could pop in and out on a guest-star basis.
It would seem plausible that information regarding the series would come sooner than later as FOX recently revealed its San Diego Comic-Con 2015 TV panel, but no word on if this will come to fruition. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
