The door is still open for the franchise to eventually continue.
June 7, 2017
After delaying a decision on the future of 24: Legacy during last month's upfronts, Fox this evening has officially cancelled the action drama after just one season. The move comes following the franchise's first incarnation without Kiefer Sutherland - a 12-episode run in the spring that ultimately fell flat in the ratings.
Fox executives had high hopes for 24: Legacy, giving it this year's coveted post-Super Bowl time slot that started its season off with over 17 million viewers. And while the next couple of episodes fared decently, audiences stopped coming back for the remainder of its run.
It is being reported, though, that Fox and 24's production team are open to revisiting the franchise in the future with a more anthological format, with each season featuring a different setting and a new cast of characters.

Make a that 2000s show that would be cool

@Suzanne - Going back even further is the ReplayTV DVR. I still have a few. It's SD only but it allows the recordings to be downloaded to a PC for offline viewing. I travel a lot for work, and it's great to get on a plane for a 4 hour flight and watch shows from last night on an iPad or other tablet/PDA. It's also great for binging too. A one hour show is about 900MB, so it's no problem storing whole seasons of multiple shows on most devices. And the picture quality isn't bad on a small tablet.

@Suzanne - I actually don't recall which season the massacre of the Russian delegation happened (Live Another Day?). I just remember Bauer was on heroin withdrawal and he had an "episode" and when it was over about a dozen Russians were dead. Most of whom where just office staff who had the bad luck to be at work that day.
I remember it because during the following weeks I kept waiting for any repercussion of the unprovoked killings, and was very surprised at 23 hours 50 minutes that there were none. In fact he got great praise from the president or something.
The nature of 24 is (was) an excessive body count, mostly evil bad guys, some brave hearted good guys, turncoats who got what's coming to them, some collateral damage (e.g. a tactical nuke taking out a L.A. suburb), but that was the only time a group of innocent people were slaughtered for no valid reason. If a violent show can be nuanced, it was out of character.

Well at least they can bring his character Heath back in TWD because he was only able to do that one episode last season due to filming this.

It was a good idea to bring show back but a bad idea not to put jack back in it. jack made the show. Plus his daughter was hot.

@plop: for me TiVo is the only option because I record A LOT. No other system I could find has 3 tb of space. I also often use all 6 tuners at one time. When Comcast started advertising 5 tuners I was hopeful, but that quickly turned to irritation since it only had 75 gb of space. I need a new tv, but as Pope said, TiVo connects to everything (that I personally have need of anyway) so I don't need to buy a smart TV. It also has a lot of features that make recording easier (at least compared to Comcast) All of that said, I have still had some glitches and complaints, but until someone else comes up with something else with more space, TiVo works best for me by far. I wasn't surprised by your reaction since we have TONS of Comcast problems, and very rarely have the technicians even seen a TiVo. I got a smile out of all the comments my offhanded mention of the thing generated...

Listen, this show wasn't a good idea in the first place. Like everyone said, you can't replace Jack. But let's be real even the last season or two and that mini reboot weren't that good.

I appreciate the info. I tried TiVo when it was still primitive. It was very hard to use. If the wire moved even a few inches away from the sensors, it didn't record (you literally had to have the two sensors facing each other and they were tiny and the slightest touch would throw them off synch). That's a lot to ask when you have pets. Glad to hear they made upgrades.

I'm using TiVo too. It's a million times better than what Comcast provides. I absolutely love it!

My Tivo blows away any cable providers DVR. One of the best tv investments I've made was to ditch the cable companies' DVR for a Tivo. And be aware.. Tivo us MUCH closer to a Smart TV + DVR than merely a DVR. Tivo connects to all sorts of web services,, yahoo, netflix, amazon...
