So it turns out Jack isn’t taking all of 2008 off after all. According to Hollywood Reporter, the show’s producers are currently developing a 2 hour TV movie which will bridge the gap between seasons 6 and 7, which will air this fall. I think this is a great compromise between not wanting to split the season in two and not wanting to leave us waiting a whole year for more ’24’.
No word yet, but I think there’s a strong possibility the real-time format may be broken to fit as much action and information as possible into the two hours.

The Hollywood Reporter ran the story too early and the deal is not 100% official. It may not even happen. So don’t believe everything you read, eh?
So this might not be 100% confirmed as defintely going to happen, although places like eonline.com have been the running the story with mentions of Fox confirmation …
Fox has confirmed that a two-hour prequel to the upcoming, long-delayed seventh season of 24 is in the works, set to hit the airwaves this fall.
Ofcourse then they go on to mention the original Hollywood Reporter story as there source for the rest of there story. When some of this confusion gets cleared up i’ll let you know.
