24 is finally moving away from LA and CTU!!

Trying to recover from both a critical and ratings dive this past season, FOX's serial thriller series "24" is shaking up its formula - albeit only a little.

According to TV Guide, women seem to be the order of the day with both a female U.S. President, and a major role being a female FBI agent.

More importantly, the action is FINALLY moving away from both CTU and Los Angeles with New York, Washington D.C. and London under consideration for new locales to set the story.

The female president is most likely going to be Karen Hughes.

So Keifer is back to being a supporting character...the weakest aspect of season 6. not good.

Didn't they say they were moving out of LA last season?

And I couldn't possibly care less about a female president. The whole political intrigue blah blah blah has been done over and over again.

Just sent a request to the mods to spoilerize the thread title. Some people are not going to want advance info on next season.

I don't care about a female president, but I doubt very much it would be Karen. Wasn't Karen fired (and rehired) in her role last season? Wouldn't this put a damper on her political career, as would having a husband that was responsible for the mess at CTU, as well as helping Jack save his nephew when he shouldn't have?

As someone who bailed on the show early into last season, I admit I would be intrigued by a London setting if they actually filmed it there. I seriously doubt they will though as the logistics of setting that up would probably take awhile and they start shooting next month. I would bet on it being set in D.C.

What makes you think that any of that is public knowledge?

I could care less if the president was male / female / martian or english bulldog...as long as he's better than Woodside. And honestly, I wouldn't mind if they ditched the presidental angle along with the CTU one.

To some extent they did. There was some "action" in DC/the presidential bunker.

Hear Hear! I know the camera can't be on Jack the whole time, but there has to be a new plot thread they can use. Why not set it in Washington and have the "political" stuff be done in the Pentagon or something.

Female president? Then knowing this show she will be dirty and/or incompetent.

Since the American public in the 24universe have a thing for all people named Palmer, maybe they should make Sherry the Prez? I am sure this show would love to skewer Hillary in time for the primaries.

Argh, no more Presidents, please!! I'm glad that they're ditching LA and CTU, but the Presidential subplots are just as tired.

Sherry? That would be interesting. I think you mean Sandra.

I suggest Audrey Raines. She's already in a coma/comatose state so it cuts out the bullshit from hour 1. No need to explain how she was elected(sympathy vote), they didn't bother with Wayne so why start now?

Blech. This sounds dreadful.

A female president is part of their big plan to completely revamp the show? I would way rather them keep CTU and end the "presidential intrigue" nonsense.

Ugh.

Speculation about the female President possibilities
Spoiler:
is useless as it has been announced that Chloe is the only other returning character from this season... Although, I suspect that we'll see a few familiar faces show up before the end of the season though.

Didn't Wayne Palmer make one screw up after another as David Palmer's Chief Of Staff? That didn't stop him.

Moving out of LA is a good idea but I can't imagine it would make the show that different or address the sameness that has creeped into the series over the year. No way they shoot an entire season in London -- if anything that's a location for the movie.

Shooting a season in the east coast seems alot more realistic than London. Although I think there is a small possibility they could send a 2nd unit team to London to shoot some scenes....but the Real Time aspect makes this unlikely. I know Prison Break shoots mostly in Dallas and a 2nd Unit team shoots in Louisiana and Florida.

I'd like them to do something a little different and base the show in Minneapolis or St. Louis. Even Chicago could work.

I was a huge fan of this show until Season 6. Now i've pretty much lost all interest...it was THAT bad...here's hoping they make some positive changes.
