In a recently published article on hollywoodreporter.com, Howard Gordon talks about the show’s past, present and future, the status of the big-screen edition of 24, and how he wants 24 to be remembered.
The article does not really contain spoilers, so don’t be afraid to read it.
Below are a few excerpts from the article, answers to questions you might be asking yourself.

I was more aware this time of ending something that really felt surprising but not cheap; emotionally consistent.
