Jack’s Back – But For How Much Longer?

I have to say I’m very pleased that 24 and Jack Bauer are back. Like a phoenix that has risen from the ashes, the first few episodes of Day 7 have managed to restore my faith in this series, recapturing the excitement of its early seasons. But how much longer will we have Jack Bauer saving the world, one excruciating day at a time?

EW’s Ausiello Files pondered the distinct possibility that 24 could end after Day 8, seeing that Kiefer Sutherland’s contract only has another year on it.

The end is on Sutherland’s mind as well. He admits:

“I don’t think about [the end of 24] a lot, but I did this year for the first time … It was one of those weird moments where the stage was unusually quiet; it was like a ghost town. I was looking around [thinking] about all the work that went into building this thing and it hit me: This will end one day, and I’m going to be sad about it.

Wow, I’ve never really thought of the end of 24, but as other great shows like BSG and Lost prepare for series finales, I’m reminded that all good things will come to an end. As much as I’ll miss that action packed 24 hours of buttkicking awesomeness, eight seasons is an excellent run for any show, so if it were to end, I’d be okay with it.

If 24 takes its final bow on the small screen after Day 8, will you be ready to say farewell to Jack Bauer?
