Kiefer Sutherland has announced his decision quit 24 full-time, but hasn’t ruled out a cameo appearance in the planned spinoff series.
Speaking to Deadline, the actor explained that he has no plans to spearhead another iteration of 24, but says he’s open to a guest star role:
“I’m not coming back to do 24 because there are other things I want to do. And when they said limited series run, I meant it. But I’ve always felt, from season one on, that 24 is such a great idea that this can go on forever.
I think if you create a new cast or other characters in the telling of this story, it will bring a freshness.
And let’s face it there’s only so many bad days one can have before the show becomes a mad comic. And what I don’t want it to be is a mad comic…it doesn’t rule out to one having a cameo.”
