For the first time in the shows history, they’ve had a panel at Comic Con, and more interesting opinions about series 6 from the writers themselves, and details about series 7 have emerged or been confirmed. Some none spoilery bits from the various coverage on the internet below, follow links for more spoilery info.
All four producers agreed that season 6 was a disappointment, a turnaround from the FOX executives who defended the quality of the latest season earlier this week at the Television Critics Association press tour … About Charles Logan, they reassured fans that unless you see someone die, they’re probably not dead … In regards to the idea of a 24 movie, the producers were rather candid. They will most likely do it after the final season, otherwise there would be a compromise and they would have to outsource either the show or the film, as they couldn’t handle both. As for the format, they said the first hour would be just like a regular movie, but that the real-time format would kick in about half-way through … The producers desperately wanted to cast Donald Sutherland as Jack’s father last season, but couldn’t get the deal to work.

Some Series 7 news, which is strictly speaking spoilers, but really is too big to ignore. Still, don’t read if you don’t want too.
According to reports on TV Guide, the writers grand plans for next year included filming many episodes on location in Africa, yes, Africa. A Plan which Fox executives quickly deemed too costly, and after trying to find shooting locations near L.A. which could double for Africa and coming up short, the decision has been made to dump the entire Africa storyline, and start all over again. Reportedly this has pushed the start of production back three weeks.
