Fox is looking for Jack Bauer's replacement for the '24' spinoff.
Fox has announced the development of a new 24 limited-run series, but this time there Jack Bauer will be gone. That's right, no more Kiefer Sutherland. Sutherland will step aside and hand over his gun, badge, and rights to kill to a new, younger male leader with a new, older female love interest.
We caught wind of a new 24 series a couple of weeks ago, but there were few details to go on. But, '24' executive producer Howard Gordon spilled the news at the Critics' Choice Awards earlier this week. The new lead is being described as another "antihero" similar to Jack Bauer, who may make appearances in the spinoff.
Producers and casting directors are most likely holding casting calls as we speak for this upcoming '24' spinoff. However, the new series will start as a limited-run series similar to '24: Live Another Day,' but, if the ratings pick up, it will be picked up as a regular series.
