As for the new series: Perhaps they can do it without villains. Have Jack assist with a natural disaster or extreme weather event or something similar.

At the rate the show was progressing through time, it's gonna be about 2050 when Jack gets to CTU again, so have him thawed from a cryopod to stop a terrorist who's trying to destroy LA with an earthquake machine. That way you can try something new like a disaster and keep the terrorism theme of the show.

Re: 24 returns as limited series

Last we saw of Jack Bauer he was a fugitive wanted by both the American authorities and the Russians. Will they wrap that up on the show or are they just going to explain that away in a line or two of dialog?

Re: 24 returns as limited series

I'm really pleased about this. It comes soon after I'd given up hope on the movie ever getting off the ground.

The more I think about this, the more I think that this is the perfect vehicle for a 24 return. A 2 hour movie is too short and would be shorn of the show's distinct identity. And, the excellent Season 7 aside, the series was running out of ideas to fill a full 24 episodes. 12 episodes, taking place at different times over the same day, will allow them to make for a leaner and sharper adventure. No CTU moles, love-lives of supporting characters, cougars, amnesia and other silly sub-plots.

I'd like some way of resolving Jack's situation at the end of situation 8 - both the Americans and Russians were after him and he was in hiding. I appreciate that they can't spend a whole 12 episodes dealing with this storyline but I'd like a little more than a throwaway line to explain it. I assume that some situation will arise that only Jack can resolve and the US government will have to pardon him to get him to deal with it.

Chloe is bound to be a cert to return, Kim is also a likely. I'd love to see Tony Almeida come back after they completely shafted his character (crappy death in S5 and then making him a villain in S7) but this might be even harder than explaining Jack's return.

If early reports are true that they're jumping ahead several years again (meaning the terrorists will have laser guns, jet packs and robotic body parts), then lip service to how season 8 ended will probably be the case.

Unless it opens with, say, Jack and Tony being let out of prison because only they can stop a certain threat.

Re: 24 returns as limited series

I have to admit my first thought at 24 being brought back is renewed anger over Renee's pointless death in Season 8. That is still a stupid and pointless decision.

That being said, I'm looking forward to the show's return and having another open thread here on the boards. 12 episodes should cut the fact and best of all, the limited series will be written ahead of time. I didn't start watching 24 regularly until Season 7 but I've heard that the first 13 episodes of 24 were great because they were all written ahead of time. I heard the last 9 weren't as good because they were written after the show has been picked up for a full season.

Re: 24 returns as limited series

Yeah I wish Renee hadn't died, but at least it led to Unhinged Jack, with Chloe trying to rein him in. It was a great way to end the series.

I'm happy to see 24 return, even though I thought enough was enough when it finished. I think that being in a limited 12 episode run should be good for the show, as they can plan things out properly. A problem that often occurred when it was first on was when they'd just plan a few episodes out at a time, which would sometimes lead to a disjointed feel.
