With 2021 marking the 20th anniversary of the premiere of “24”, could Jack Bauer have another mission left?

“I believe the story is unresolved,” Kifer said GQ. “If something is written that makes sense to me and I thought it was going to contribute to the franchise, I will be behind it, even if my participation is limited.”

Premiering in the fall of 2021, “24” lasted six seasons before being revived for the limited series “24: Redemption” in 2008, then the series was revived for two more seasons until the show was finally canceled in 2010.

Fox later announced plans for two separate spinoffs – a legal thriller and a prequel to Jack Bauer’s early career – but both were eventually scrapped.
