Some bad news for any 24 fans looking forward to FOX’s potential spinoffs, as the network has announced that it has decided not to move forward with either of the two projects it has been developing.
The first to enter development was a female-fronted real-time legal thriller from 24 showrunner Howard Gordon and Jeremy Doner, while the second – created by Gordon and 24 co-creators Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran – would have been a prequel exploring the pre-CTU years of a young Jack Bauer.
“The power of these franchises is not to be toyed with, and 24 was an iconic moment in television, and when and if we bring it back, it will be because the creators and writers feel like they have the right story to tell, they can honor the franchise and the studio and the network feel the same way,” said Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier.
According to Deadline, the producers of 24 are now expected to go back to the drawing board to explore further potential spinoffs.
