24 Returning Next May For 12 Part Series, Live Another Day

24: season seven logo.Fox have officially announced that 24 will be back on screens next year. They’ve booked in both Kiefer Sutherland and showrunner Howard Gordon, who was boss from 2008 until the series’ cancellation.

But there are some changes. For one thing, there are only going to be twelve episodes.

Which means one of a few things. Least likely, I think, is that each episode will be two hours long. Most likely is that the run will only cover twelve hours in the one day.

Somewhere in the middle is the possibility that they won’t be running in “real time” anymore, but I really don’t expect this.

This series is going to be subtitled Live Another Day, which at least works as a nice riff on the Bond title, Die Another Day.

Perhaps this will be a smash and really light a fire under the old 24 movie plans. More likely, this is what we’ll get instead of a big-screen installment.
