Fox is reportedly close to axing its award winning and critically acclaimed spy/thriller series 24. According to media reports stateside the broadcaster is unlikely to renew a new season of 24 when it’s current one, season eight, concludes. There had been some speculation about such a move for weeks but Fox hadn’t commented on the rumours. Although Fox has yet to officially announce the fate of the series its thought within the next few days Fox will decide 24’s fate.
If Fox did decide to end the series after its current season it doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the franchise. Not only is a big-screen movie in the works but its likely the studio behind 24 would try and take the series elsewhere. Last week NBC said it was “unlikely” but not impossible they would take up the series. Other contenders for the series include ABC and CBS.
