Fox is trying to make 24 and Prison Break happen again

01.15.2016

Everything old is new again in the world of Fox. They’ve brought back THE X-FILES. They’re putting on performances of GREASE and THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, and now they’re aiming to revive both the 24 and PRISON BREAK brand.

24 has received a pilot order for a new direction being dubbed 24: LEGACY, which would move onto an entirely different set of characters, leaving Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer to finally find some peace. The lead would be an African-American military hero who now must deal with some sort of trouble that is following him back to the States. He then teams up with our familiar CTU in order to stop a terrorist attack using the same 24-hour plot device that the series has always been built upon.

The character would be much different from Jack Bauer, giving the series something new to work with, but you can bet he’s going to be a bad-ass of his own making as it is almost required to deal with such a threat in this nature of show.

As for PRISON BREAK, that has a much firmer commitment from Fox, with an as-yet-to-be-determined number of episodes getting the green light from the network. Original stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will reprise their roles as Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows, but the mystery remains as to what they’ll have to do next. As a fan of the show during its run on Fox, I can attest to the fact that the program got more and more ridiculous with its objective with each new season, and I can only hope they figure out some very creative and interesting way to make this return work rather than for only nostalgia’s sake.

No timeline has been given as to when fans might expect either show to make it to the airwaves, so, for now - tick tick tick - you’ll have to sit and wait patiently.

Well, Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are already on Legends of Tomorrow but they're probably well into filming the first season. This allows the writers time to set up the inevitable double cross that causes the Legends to not want to work with Captain Cold and Heatwave anymore. That would be when the Legends start calling themselves the Justice Society. I expect that eventually the Flash and Arrow will be replaced by Justice Society and Titans to make it easier for actors to come and

They will probably keep the Flash going as long as they can, however.

Please, no more Prison Break. Season 1 was great and season 2 was good, but the rest of that show was pure crap.

Honestly if they were never planning on continuing with Jack Bauer after Live Another Day, they should have really ended it instead of leaving it as a cliffhanger. If Keifer doesn't want to do this anymore, then they really should just end it. This will likely get cancelled quickly as Bauer was the main draw.

I don't want to spoil too much for anybody that has yet to watch Prison Break... but how exactly are they planning on bringing both of them back? The seasons didn't leave much of a time gap between them, so it's not really as if they could cram a story in some time before the finale happened. If they try to pretend the events of the finale were faked, it would only cheapen the emotional effect of the series as a whole.

That said, I'm still pretty excited to see more.

The 24 revival is an awfu idea and a slap to us fans since they never gave Sutherland's Bauer a proper, fitting ending; instead only leaving it on a huge cliffhanger.

As for Prison Break, I think it would be cool to see the show return again considering Miller, and Purcell would both be back and that the show was addicting and entertaining as while it was on.
