Twentieth Century Fox Television has just sent us word that there will be a one hour 24 panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 on Thursday July 24th with series star Kiefer Sutherland and director Jon Cassar. It seems they’ll mostly just be promoting the upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray release, but who knows, maybe they’ll announce another season too? Here’s the full press release from FOX:

10:00-11:00am – 24: JACK IS BACK at Comic-Con, DAMN IT! – Kiefer Sutherland takes the stage to celebrate 24’s most iconic moments and highlights of Jack Bauer’s triumphant return in 24: Live Another Day.

Catch the exclusive sneak peek at highly-anticipated Blu-ray and DVD featurette, “Worlds Collide,” illustrating how the pulse-pounding storytelling was created for this thrilling new season.

Screening and discussion moderated by Executive Producer Jon Cassar to be followed by fan Q&A and more. Ballroom 20.

Update: here’s a flyer advertisement that FOX has sent out to promote the panel:

Wait what’s the Blu-ray thing? Worlds Collide? This is going to be on it?

This sounds awesome though. I would totally go if I hadn’t already spent all my money for a weekend trip to NYC to see Mary Lynn do stand up lol.

Same weekend as Comic Con anyway. Hopefully some footage surfaces online

Hope with this panel, fox announces another series :)

Me too!

Same here!

I’m very sad, my tickets to Comic-Con are on Friday. I hope they give us more episodes.

How fitting that the panel is from 10:00AM-11:00AM.

This panel will take place in real time.

With no time jumps.

I wonder if Kiefer will say the first, “Events do not occur in real time” during Episode 12.

Yeah, I wonder how they’re going to do that. Will Kiefer come on twice? (the following takes place between 10:00PM and 10:35PM, and then “the following takes place between 10:40AM an 11:00AM). Or just one (10:00PM to 11:00AM).

I’m thinking 10PM to 11AM. The others might interrupt the flow of the episode. Either way is cool though.

Yeah I think the one announcement would be better. They could always do a “12 hours later” when the time skip occurs.

And it’s taking place on the “24”th of the month too! Wonder if they plan this stuff or if it’s just neat coincidences? Either way kind of cool.

Jon Cassar’s recent tweet seems to have been for this Comic-Con panel: https://twitter.com/joncassar/status/484227851462651904

“Worlds Collide,” illustrating how the pulse-pounding storytelling was created for this thrilling new season.

I suspect monkeys and coin tosses will factor in somewhere.

Dear Panel,

Please do not dignify any questions about “when do they go to the bathroom/sleep/have a shite?” with a response, someone else might actually have an interesting question in the meantime.

Amen to that! Absolutely!

Do ONE more season, make it the definitive last, and make it a truly great one!

Hopefully it would be set in Los Angeles.

yes, make it more personal about Jack and his family rather than saving the world again!
and bring back as many past characters as possible! Kim! Tony! Aaron! Mandy!

Do season 10 and have it like this:

Jack is back in LA resting up, holds down a normal job, just spends time with Kim and family who are on vacation.

The cabal behind Alan Wilson bust Wilson loose from jail and Tony is there, he breaks free in the chaos and goes after Wilson.

Audrey and Mike Novick, who is now president, are trying to sign some bill that the cabal doesn’t want them to.

The cabal blows up every single fbi, cia, ctu, and any other acronym station in LA. They corden off the entire city with bombs, any one tries to enter boom.

Meanwhile Wayne Palmer is in LA with Aaron Pierce guarding him, living in his brothers penthouse, as his death was a rouse to keep those who wanted to kill him in day 6 at bay, he specifically asked for Aaron as he prepared to come back into the spotlight.

The cabal take the people in the building hostage where Mike is, Mike escapes and hides for most of the season, avoiding the men. Audrey gets captured and Jack sees her on tv. before that he really doesn’t give a shit what is going on.

So he grabs his stuff and jumps into action, completely on his own.

Assassins try to kill Wayne but Aaron kills them all. The pair move and make their way across the city trying to get out.

the whole city is in chaos.

Tony makes his way across the city, just after Wilson. Jack does the same. Eventually Tony and Jack get pinned down in the same spot, they turn to find the other, have a wtf moment and then blow a few bad guys away. But they are surrounded. Wayne and Aaron come upon them and help them out of the jam.

The four make it to the building and storm it. Blowing many away before getting caught. They are all tied up in a room and Wilson gloats a bit before walking out and leaving, Tony, Wayne, Aaron, Jack and Audrey there.

Mike peaks out down the hall and his eyes bug out of his head as he sees a familiar face walk towards the room. He clutches the gun he found along the way in the season and creeps down the hall.

The whole room’s eyes bug out as in walks Sherry Palmer. she reveals she has been with the cabal for years. She was the one who tried to kill Wayne as president. She blames each and every one of them for David’s death, besides Audrey, she just got caught in the middle. david was a great man and blah blah blah, their fault he is dead. This time she will finish the job, she takes aim at Wayne and pow, Sherry drops dead for real, Mike shoots her in the back.

Aaron and Wayne stay to protect the president while Jack and Tony go after Wilson and the cabal. They kill them all but Wilson who is getting away on the roof in a helicopter. Jack and Tony make it to the roof. Jack just turns the other way this time and lets Tony fire away at the helicopter, hitting Wilson and watching as he falls out to his death.

A little bit of a wrap up and such and then the final scene is Jack and Audrey at teri’s grave with Tony there at Michelle’s. And if it is the last season, it ends there. if not, the camera hauls back to Mandy with a sniper rival on a ridge. The voice that was talking to nina in season 1 tells her to take the shot. One shot fired and Audrey drops to the ground. Jack is in shock as Tony jumps behind a grave stone yelling for him to get down, season ends.

You do know that Wayne Palmer is dead, right?

As why I made the “rouse” remark

Hope Fox won’t do more 24 not even a spin-off featuring Yvonne Strahovski as Kate Morgan. Can’t wait what Kiefer Sutherland has in store at Comic-Con and about the DVD and Blu-ray release of 24: Live Another Day, I predict that the DVD set will have 4 discs and the Blu-ray set will have 3 discs not to mention the bonus features on both Blu-ray and DVD.

I hope the box set will include commentaries and bloopers. Kiefer promised us bloopers for the final season before season 8 came out and that didn’t happen. Maybe now?

I think Breaking Bad showed perfectly that bloopers don’t take anything away from the seriousness of the show.

I can’t believe they’ll make an appearance attended primarily by die-hard fans, only to acknowledge the end of the series – it would be too much salt in the wound, especially if it’s Kiefer delivering the news.

This news leaves me optimistic that the entire cast, writers and producers are proceeding as if there will be a 10th season and they are leaving the fate of the series in FOX’s hands.

Yes or they may be going one step further and announce a 10th season at Comic-Con. This should be clear however at the end of this season depending on what the ending is.

It’s funny reading threw these post I’ve started to wonder what if they have something planned that we may not know about……. Hopefully it will be another season I hope. But as far as right now we dunno weather Fox has planned to renew this or not……. What if there saving some type of news for comic con?

Have you guys heard the story behind Rocky Balboa?
Stallone was apparently having trouble financing the movie. The studio was reluctant to back it for fear it would flop. Allegedly when they did the math they realised that regardless of how much box office the movie would actually do, it would make it’s money back in terms of re-releasing the DVD box set with the new movie added to it.

To me 24:LAD seems like it’s just a bonus feature for a re-release of the DVD/ Blu Ray box set. It wasn’t made to wrap things up, to reboot the series, to please the fans. It was made to help them push more box sets.

The lazy plots, pacing and staging of this latest incarnation do nothing in my mind to say otherwise.

You clever, clever bastard! I think you nailed it there.

That doesn’t make a whole lotta sense just re-release 24 as a box set…… Why would they do all this work plus have spot @ comic-con to do what your assuming……?

To sell, sell, sell!

Will we be able to watch this 24 panel online?

Here an message from the Netherlands. Fox please make more 24!!!!! Today we had the last episode.

Bring back 24 for 1 more episode at least and include Tony Olmeida in it! You’d get lots of viewers!
