Fox Opens The Door To More '24,' 'X-Files' & 'Prison Break'

After a successful comeback run for Jack Bauer, the Fox network is looking across its classic hits for more revival vehicles.

Fox Television Group chairmen and CEO Gary Newman said, "We would love nothing more than to do another 24. That's a constant focus for us." Though fellow CEO Dana Walden later stressed that show producers Howard Gordon, Evan Katz and Manny Coto are keeping the possibility alive that the series will continue without Keifer Sutherland's Jack Bauer. "We have discussed it with him," Walden said. "Potentially, he won't be in this installment, we're not sure yet. We're not that far along but I know he supports us doing more 24. We're not talking about continuing the show without him; we're talking about whether there's one installment that he's not in."

Meanwhile, Walden stressed that scheduling issues were the only barrier to more X-Files, but on a separate panel this weekend, the holy trinity of the cult hit – creator Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson – gave a different view of the situation. The AP reports that all three expressed support for the idea of another X-Files movie, but the idea of a TV revival earned an emphatic "No!" from Anderson.

As for Prison Break, Fox offered up general positivity at the thought of bringing back the show. Meanwhile, stars Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller are guest starring on next week's episode of The CW's The Flash.
