I must admit that I find this a bit of a surprise…especially after how boring this past season was!!

“24” renewed for 2 more days
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – The clock on “24” will keep ticking for two more seasons.
Fox has renewed the Emmy-winning real-time drama starring Kiefer Sutherland through the 2008-09 season. Sutherland is already locked to stay with the show through 2009.
“24” has had a roller-coaster ride the past couple of seasons, earning rave reviews for season five, which was capped by a best drama series Emmy and drawing criticism by some fans for the plotline in the current sixth season.
