Storyline

Four years after the events of Day 8, Jack Bauer remains a federal fugitive. Meanwhile, amid growing concerns over the use of US military drones in combat, President James Heller pays a historic visit to London to negotiate a treaty to continue their basing on British soil. Having heard rumors of an imminent attack against Heller, Bauer resurfaces in the city, where he is apprehended by the CIA and forcibly recruited into joining their investigation, with the promise of amnesty in return for his co-operation. As forces within the White House conspire against him, Bauer realizes that the complexity of the plot extends beyond a presidential assassination, and that the consequences of a successful attack will alter the course of history. With the help of a disgraced CIA agent and a hacker collective preaching free information, he must confront an unseen enemy whose personal vendetta threatens to push the world to the brink of war.

A Solid Return So Far (but a return was inevitable)
15 May 2014 | by (Seaside, NJ,US) – See all my reviews

It's hard to imagine four years has already passed since 24 ended it's run. The ending of the series was fitting and it suitably left the possibility of a return for Jack Bauer either in a mini series or perhaps a feature film. Well, the feature film never happened (was sure that's what would happen, events would be in real time of course but the storyline could still be in 24 hours). I thought 24 : Redemption was a test run for the format more than a TV movie prequel to Season 7. What you have after Sutherlands imaginative TV series Touch ran its course is a limited 12 episode run for the show.

The change in format makes perfect sense. Firstly, because the 24 episode format always had a different villain to chase after the first 12 episodes concluded the initial storyline and second, the investment wouldn't be such a burden for the network. One of three things sink every TV show eventually, either the ratings are poor or the cost of production eventually outweighs the rating value. Cost of production includes salary increases for regular cast members which grows significantly after three successful seasons. The last being a creative decline because the well of imaginative ideas ran dry.

24 survived two of the three listed above. The show plateaued ratings wise which led to its cancellation but there was never a real drop off. The cost of production skyrocketed by Season 5 and I can't imagine anyone feeling Season 6 wasn't a sign of trouble in the writing room. Worse yet for 24, Season 6 with its sour ending was followed by the writer's strike which held up production for two years. I for one never returned to watching the show after the strike and I am sure others felt the same.

I recently watched both Seasons 7 and 8 in their entirety and found it departed from the bizarre (and I felt quite hackneyed) plot twists in 6. The show was back in form specifically in 7 with its blend of drama ,action, political intrigue and mystery. The writers looked to be developing their story lines along a basic theme as well.

It's too early to see if Season 9 will pick up where the show left off. I was leery toward the return of James Heller and his daughter Audrey to the storyline (they departed in Season 6) but the characters remain interesting enough to be in the storyline (it also helps to draw back some of the older viewers of the show as well since many feel the show was at its peak when the Hellers were in the storyline back in Seasons 4 through 6).

The storyline also wisely starts up years after Season 8 concluded. It remains to be seen if the 12 episode variation will work to cram in a shadowy secondary villain in the back end of the season like the 24 episode seasons did. It would be quite a feat if they could. I expect the shorter season to be a set up to that secondary villain should their be a 10th. If not, then perhaps the events toward the end of season 8 will catch up to Bauer the more time he shows himself in public.

There's a healthy dose of intrigue still surrounding the character of Jack Bauer and many will continue to watch wondering when he will come up short during his next metaphorical jump.
