So, yesterday I told you about the possibility, and today, it’s official, Fox have postponed 24’s Seventh Season until it can be aired non-stop. Press release from Fox below.
“24” PREMIERE POSTPONED TO ENSURE “DAY 7” PROVIDES NON-STOP ACTION
In light of the recently announced strike by The Writers Guild of America, FOX has revised its lineup for January and the remainder of the 2007-2008 season. (The new schedule is subject to change, pending resolution of the strike.)
The highly anticipated drama TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES will have a two-night premiere on Sunday, Jan. 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and Monday, Jan. 14 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), the show’s regular time period. PRISON BREAK, which has its last November airing on Monday, Nov. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), returns to Mondays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) beginning Jan. 14.
The seventh season premiere of 24 is being postponed to ensure that “Day 7” can air uninterrupted, in its entirety.
It would be really easy to start blaming the writers now, and for us the fans to act as victims of some unspeakable horror, but I for one am with the writers on this one. Just look how crucial there contribution is, they deserve a fair share of the pie.
