As one of my all-time favorite shows comes to end this season, I give you some links reacting to the announcement that came today from multiple sources via Twitter, including former Director Jon Cassar, who broke the news first. Then Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe) came out with her own Tweet to announce the end of the show which has lasted eight wonderful seasons. Only one season of the eight was under the high quality that the series had set for so long.
Let’s now bring some reaction to end of the show which premiered right after 9/11 occurred in 2001.
James Hibberd of the Hollywood Reporter says the series finale airs in May.
James also talks with Executive Producer and showrunner Howard Gordon about what’s in store for the franchise.
Lynette Rice of Entertainment Weekly talks with star Kiefer Sutherland who states that a 9th season on NBC was not an option for the show.
Brian Stelter of the New York Times says 24 represented the times we lived in.
Mike Hale of the Times writes the time has come for the show to end.
Denise Martin and Maria Elena Fernandez of the Los Angeles Times says while the cast knew the end was near, many of the crew reacted emotionally.
Michael Schneider at Variety says not only is a movie in the works, but perhaps a series spinoff.
And here is the last live blog my Twitter trophy wife Amanda Rykoff wrote for Hour 13 of this season.
That will do it for this post. Sorry to see the series end, but it had to come and better to go while the series is still doing decently.
The series finale is scheduled for May 24 (quite appropriately).
