FOX may have been surprised that a new announcement of a brand new 24 is coming was met with a muddled response from fans, a sense of disappointment hang over it! Why? Because 24: Legacy is carrying on without the character that made the franchise so popular….that’s right……….Jack Bauer aka Kiefer Sutherland is not coming back.
An as of yet unknown character is taking over the reigns of the hero in what is going to be a brand new reboot of 24 and Sutherland is happy that its moving on without him.
“I have said from the beginning that the real star of 24 is the idea, and I mean that wholeheartedly.” he commented on when asked about the shows return. But what about the fate of Bauer, left in the air after the events of Live Another Day.
“I have no idea if the  movie will ever happen, or Jack Bauer might end up finding his way into an episode one day and clarifying all of that, or ending all of that,”
Lets hope that somehow Bauer gets a cameo or even a surprise hidden role somewhere in the new show as the why the hero was left for us fans as left a bitter after-taste!
