The future of 24 remains open-ended, if uncertain.
Fans hoping 24 Season 10 would be announced at today’s Comic-Con panel were left disappointed, but the series remains open to future continuation.
Executive producer Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland didn’t address a possible tenth season during the panel, but did talk about the difficulty of saying goodbye to the franchise following Live Another Day.
“It’s hard to end it. We came ourselves as people who are making the show, came full-faced with that. Trying to create the end of our show this season, because we had said this was the last season, was really difficult for us. All of us individually didn’t want to let it go; we fought against it, we fought for it. Your response to the end of this season was really gracious and kind, so thank you very much.”
While talks between the producers and Fox about a potential tenth season are apparently slated to take place at some point, Casser did say that a 24 movie is still potentially in the works:
We’re still talking about the movie, it’s still potentially out there.”
