Deadline is reporting promising news from the ATX Television Festival for fans of Kiefer Sutherland and Jack Bauer (that’s pretty much all of us) – there just might be a storyline for him in the second half of 24: Legacy.
I’d heard [Howard] Gordon and the team of 24: Legacy have an arc in mind for the second part of 24: Legacy‘s 12-episode first season that could involve Bauer if a deal comes together, but there are no talks going on at the moment with Sutherland for acting. He could do a couple of episodes as a guest star without creating a conflict with his leading-man duties on Designated Survivor. There also is a possibility of other 24 original cast members reprising their roles in guest stints.
Fans may remember that the fourth season of 24 started off with an entirely new supporting cast before bringing back fan favorites like Tony Almeida, Michelle Dessler, Mike Novick, David Palmer, and even Mandy over the course of the season. So even though 24: Legacy has a completely new cast, that doesn’t rule out past beloved characters from making a comeback.
