    How many seasons do you think 24 has been contracted for and/or could last for?

    I remember reading somewhere that Kiefer Sutherland had signed up to do 7 seasons, but how many different forms of terror can we have?

    As long as the show is in the top 20 in the Nielsens, FOX will keep renewing the show. With Prison Break expected to return for a 2nd season, FOX is going to have a great 1-2 punch on Monday's next season. Plus, FOX just signed up Howard Gordon, 24's showrunner, to run Season 6. I think FOX and the producers are taking things one season at a time.

    I only heard about the contract of Kiefer Sutherland for a 6th season.

    Most shows only get renewed 1 season at a time. So, we definitely expect a 6th season for January 2007. Like I said, FOX and the producers are probably taking this one season at a time, but as long as the show continues to do well in the Nielsens, I see this show getting renewed 1 season at a time.

    Plus there are rumors flying around that Edward Norton might take over as the main character eventually. At first he was supposed to come in as Jack's brother.

    Ed Norton? No offense to the guy, hes a good actor, but nobody could replace Kiefer Sutherland.
