’24: season 9 Update'

Show producer Howard Gordon spoke openly about 24 season 9′s new, shorter, format while at the Televsion Critics Association.

“We’ll keep it a 24 hour story but we’ll tell 7-8, 8:15-9:15, 10-11 and then skip 3 hours if we need to. I think it’s going to actually make us not have to do the pretzel logic of some of the stuff. It’s still early, we’re still full of hope, but I’m sure in about 3 weeks, I’ll be under the table crying.“

Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly Added:

“24: Live Another Day” miniseries will give us the “24” experience we want without stretching the story too thin… Everybody came in with a new vibrancy. The 12 episode format, Howard [Gordon] has always said, he always had 12 great ones, it was the next 12 that used to kill them.”

Reilly also confirmed the new setting for the show will be somewhere overseas (supposedly Europe):

“This is going to be set in an international setting. They’ve got great ideas. I love doing it this way.”
