Would You Watch 24 Without Jack Bauer?

Fox recently announced that there are plans for further seasons of 24… without Keifer Sutherland as Jack Bauer. He may return in a small capacity but apparently they are looking for a 20 something actor who will team up with a veteran female agent.

For me Keifer Sutherland just made the show what it was; even when it jumped the shark we’d always be rooting for him.

The character’s unpredictability and questionable methods made him such an icon because you could see this was a man who would always do whatever it takes to get the job done.

 

The last series 24: Live Another Day simply wasn’t very good and the viewing figures weren’t as high as previous seasons but that’s not Jack’s fault, that was just poor writing.

It’s kind of like having Die Hard without John McClane but I’d be lying if I said I really cared. 24 ran its course for me already so I’m not sure anyone would be all that bothered with a new spin-off series…

Are you guys interested in a 24 series without Jack as the lead?
