'24' renewed for two more seasons
Jack will be back for at least two more days from hell after 24 was renewed through the 2008-09 season.

Producers have promised that the upcoming seventh season will mark a change in direction for the show, following a season widely criticised by its fanbase for being uninspired.

"We're re-creating the series," exec producer Howard Gordon told The Hollywood Reporter. "It is [still] going to be a real-time thriller. Beyond that, it's an open book."

Besides Kiefer Sutherland, who is contracted until the end of season 8 in May 2009, season 7 will see an entirely new cast. Some existing cast members may return, the publication says, "but in different roles". The show will also be based out of a new, non-LA location.

Season six wraps in the US with a two hour finale next Monday, May 21.
