Why Didn’t The Producers of 24 Kill Off Jack Bauer?

“We certainly considered it,” 24 Producer Howard Gordon told usatoday.com. “We considered killing him earlier (in the season) as an off-rhythm thing. But every time we went there and penciled it out, it didn’t feel satisfying. It felt frustrating or it felt affected or something.” I call bullshit. What could be more satisfying than ending a TV series by killing off the main character? Oh, you mean financially satisfying. “Gordon says another draft of the 24 film is ‘being written’ [passively constructed?] and he doesn’t know when it will be ready. ‘I think sooner rather than later is a good idea, but the people at Fox have their own timetable.'”
