24 is one of those shows that exploded with an incredibly diligent fan base from the get go. This was Fox’s ‘Lost’. Unfortunately with episode costs rising and ratings falling it seems a no brainer for cancellation. It’s being reported that costs for the show began to exceed $5 million for licensing fees per episode paid by Fox to 20th TV. This isn’t a true cancellation though, the writing talent behind the show openly talk about their inability to come up with exciting new story-lines that would fit within the realtime structure of the show. It’s almost as if everyone is calling it quits. Everyone except producer Howard Gordon, who says that a feature film is being developed among many other possible ways to keep the 24 universe alive.
