"24" Renewed Through 2009
MAY 16, 2007: FOX has issued an unusually late renewal for its Monday night thriller "24" for two more seasons. The producers have promised to completely re-invent the struggling drama.
The show star Kiefer Sutherland is already on board through 2009 as part of last year's 3-year 8-figure deal.
The drama will return with a new cast (some favorites may return) and a new non-Los Angeles location.
Following a successful Emmy-winning 5th season, the drama drew a lot of criticism this year.
Executive producer/showrunner Howard Gordon believes it was unfair: "On balance, it was a very successful season," he said.
FOX has already renewed "House," "Prison Break," "Bones," " 'Till Death" as well as the network's Sunday animated comedy block.
