There are no episode titles for 24 episodes. There is a short description for the first episode. The season premiere will unfold in New York City amidst the shadows of the Statue of Liberty and the United Nations. In the eighth day, CTU has been upgraded and is run by MBA-schooled and razor-sharp head honcho Brian Hastings (Williamson from, “Forrest Gump”).
Season eight will be sure to start tying up some loose ends when it comes to Jack’s life. The allure of 24 is kind of dying out and it took a huge shot when it was put on hiatus two years ago due to the writers’ strike. I think that the producers and writers want to show Bauer’s softer side. They want to show that he is trying to change as a person by taking more of an active role in Kim’s life as well as perhaps exploring a romantic relationship with Agent Walker.
The season will also explore the option of a female president again. She is still in term and with women gaining power in political office, Fox and 24 are laying the groundwork for the potential of a female president. We never thought we would see the day when a black man would become president. Well, the day of a female president is soon nearing.
Kim Bauer will play more of a role this year, helping to round out Jack Bauer’s image. I think that producers will want to start prepping storylines for season 9. I predict that season 9 will be the final season of 24. Don’t quote me on that, but if I’m right, you heard it first.
Gear up for the season premiere on January 17th on Fox for the premiere of season eight of 24.
