Kiefer Sutherland: “I don’t see myself going back to 24”

The man who played Jack Bauer for nine seasons is (almost) confident Live Another Day was the last season of the hit thriller

Jack Bauer might still be living and breathing, but 24 star Kiefer Sutherland doesn’t see himself making any more episodes of the hit US series. 


The show, following rogue counter terrorist agent Bauer, returned to our telly screens earlier in 2014 following a four-year hiatus. And for Sutherland at least, it was a fitting way to finally call time on the series.

“Me, I don’t see going back to it,” Sutherland told The Telegraph. “We had set out to do 12 episodes to end the show and deal with some of the past history of the show. It was also an irresistible opportunity to go shoot in England. So for all of those reasons it made sense to do that last season.”

Sutherland’s admission put an end to persistent feature film rumours as well as fan’s hopes for another season. Or at least, it almost did… 


“I think I said the same thing at the end of season 8 so I would hate to be held to that,” Sutherland added.
