Huge news 24 fans! According to Deadline Hollywood…
The clock may start ticking again on Fox. I’ve learned that the network is looking to bring back signature real-time drama 24 as a limited series. Kiefer Sutherland is in early talks to reprise his Emmy-winning role as Agent Jack Bauer. No deals are in place, but Fox is eying 24 as part of its recent push in limited event series. Since 24 ended its eight-season run on Fox in 2010, there has been an effort to continue the story as a feature, which ultimately didn’t take off.
Great news Happy Endings fans! USA may pick up the series and give it a new home (fingers crossed) if ABC doesn’t pick it up! Let’s make this happen. I have been so sick of ABC and what they’ve done to Happy Endings. It was perfect behind Modern Family and then this year they want to move it to Tuesday nights where there are a TON of things on TV … most of which are ratings bonanza hits for their networks. It never had a chance; not to mention the horrid double up with airings on Sundays as well before banishing it to Friday nights post Last Man Standing & Malibu Country season finales. Pretty much, ABC doesn’t know how to schedule jack. Here’s a little bit from Deadline Hollywood!
EXCLUSIVE: Despite ratings hardship and real and clear danger of cancellation, Happy Endings may live up to its title even if ABC opts not to order a fourth season. I hear that Sony TV, the leading studio behind the underrated comedy series, has quietly reached out to a couple of networks, including USA Network and NBC, about the possibility of continuing the comedy there if ABC does not renew it. I hear USA, which has been looking to break into the half-hour original series space, has expressed interest and has had discussions about picking up Happy Endings in case of a cancellation by ABC.
Check out this video of the Happy Endings cast discussing ABC bringing back TGIF. We still have a little less than 20 days until the show returns. Spread the word and get your friends to tune in so we can get a fourth season!
