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.

UPDATE : Friday March 7th
Hq, a 24 blog run by a Fox staffer with “insider info”, just posted saying ….
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.

That’s great. Can’t wait 🙂 A really good decision I think.
I was wondering when the prequel to season 7 was gonna be made. I’m really glad that it’s gonna be 2 hours long as well. It looks like we didn’t have to wait that long for a 24 movie huh 🙂
HOLY S***, I CAN’T WAIT!!! It’s definitely going to be awesome.
Sounds like great news. The idea of a Straight-to-TV movie should be brilliant. Maybe they could make it just a little longer for all us FANatics waiting patiently? I’ve seem TV Specials go 3 hours, normally the show is only warming up after 2 hours but Anything is better than Nothing in my opinion.
And no cameo for Kim is gonna be my mantra.
I’m suspecting it’ll be 2 hours minus commercials, with largely the same cast as series 7 itself.
Hmm. Quite excited about the prospect, but can’t help but feel (cynically I know) that this is another “the fans having been saying this for moths so lets do it” scenario!
Not that I’m complaining. More 24 is always good.
I think it would be really interesting to have it involve the closure of CTU.
