Although the action thriller signed off after eight seasons in 2010, Fox decided it needed Jack Bauer to save the day (and the network's ratings) one more time. Despite multiple attempts to launch a 24 movie during the intervening period, the project never came together. When executive producer Howard Gordon pitched a London-based, 12-episode miniseries to Fox, the stars finally aligned and 24: Live Another Day was born. The question remains: Is this the final chapter of 24? Based on its ratings performance and creative revitalization, we wouldn't rule out a few more "Dammit!"-filled days in the future.
