Confirmed: 24 returning to TV as a miniseries

Is 24's Jack Bauer coming back to television via a new Fox miniseries? Yes he is...

UPDATE: This is now confirmed. 24 will return next summer, with a 12-hour miniseries, that'll miss a few hours out (inevitably) as it tells its latest story. More as we hear it.

First there was a planned feature film, then a potential trilogy of them, and now it looks as if 24 has trained its sights back on the small screen.

Since previously attached director Antoine Fuqua suggested that the 24 movie was dead in the water, word arrives that former showrunner and executive producer Howard Gordon has pitched a new take on the show, in the form of a TV miniseries.

Fuqua told The Playlist earlier this year that Kiefer Sutherland's negotiations with Fox for the film series had failed to reach "a proper agreement", but it's now being reported that Sutherland may reprise his role as Jack Bauer in a new-look TV version of the Fox show that made him a household name. We'll keep you posted.
