News From Comic Con Panel

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.

Evan Katz Interview

“At the beginning of every season, we sit down – maybe eight or nine of us – in a room,” says Evan Katz. “We talk for about two hours a day for weeks and weeks. It’s draining, but what emerges are ideas about story construction, and villains, and settings. We leave that room with a good idea about the first four episodes.”

Evan Katz has been a writer on the show since series two, in this interview he offers some frank answers about the writing process on the show and it’s future.
