For the past few days rumors have surfaced that 20th Century Fox and its television production company Fox TV were nearing an agreement to cancel their action series "24" due to declining ratings and production costs. The latest report from Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly suggests that 20th Century Fox has approached NBC on possibly picking up the series for a ninth season and the peacock network is interested.
If NBC declines the offer to pick it up, there is another factor for 24 fans to consider. There is a developing feature film based around Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) which has been said to not go into production until the series ends. If this is the final day of Bauer on televised format, he could breaking into cinemas sometime in the near future.
