24 to Return as Limited Series
Considering Fox just canceled Kiefer Sutherland’s latest television drama Touch, it’s no wonder the network is seeking revive his previously successful project, 24. According to new reports, the thriller will be resurrected as a limited series.
According to Deadline, Sutherland, showrunner Howard Gordon and executive producer David Fury will return to work on the project. Gordon is currently executive produces Homeland, and he and Fury are working on the FX pilot Tyrant. “I’m pulling double duty along with Tyrant,” Fury tweeted.
Since 24 went off the air in 2010, there have long been talks of bringing the series back to life as a movie. That idea was ultimately canned in March 2012, though fortunately Touch was brought back for a second season. Now it seems as though Sutherland is out of work once again and looking to return to the fan-favorite franchise, even if only for one season.
Created by Heroes‘ Tim Kring, Touch premiered on Fox on Jan. 25, 2012. The series also starred Maria Bello, Lukas Haas and Danny Glover. The final episode of Touch airs tonight at 9 ET/PT.
