'24' casting call: Another sign the Fox show is history?

Posted on

Fox has yet to officially announce whether 24 will end its eight-season run this May but clues continue to pop up that suggest otherwise. Here’s the latest: a casting call for the role of a U.N. secretary general on 24 went out to talent agencies this week and included an advisory: “These are the final episodes, so if some of your name people would like to do something on the show, this is the time for them to do it.” Say it ain’t so, Jack!

Unlike Fox shows like Fringe, Glee and Bones, 24 has yet to receive a pickup for the 2010-11 season. So far this year, the drama is down 10 percent in viewers (11.7 million versus 12.9 million last year).
