Fox is expected to announce the cancellation of 24 in a matter of days, according to internet rumours.
Various sources suggest that the real-time drama has been axed by the network, with a formal announcement expected shortly.
The show has faced problems recently with declining ratings and Fox has made no secret of the fact that it is an expensive show to produce. Network president Kevin Reilly recently admitted that a renewal for 24 is “a very tough call”.
Last year, Carlos Bernard – Tony Almeida on the series – hinted to Digital Spy that the current eighth season would be the last.
“I do, honestly [think season eight will be the last]. It’s pretty hard creatively to find ways of topping yourself season after season, but we’ve gone for eight so far, so who knows? Regardless I think we’re going to have a very good season this year.”
