Don't read if you don't want to know Jack Bauer's fate!
Executive producer of 24 Howard Gordon has revealed that Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) will not be getting a happy ending when the series finale airs on May 24.
"We considered several very different endings," he says. "We tried 'happily ever after' and it didn't work. This show is a tragedy. To give Jack a happy ending wouldn't have felt authentic."
Gordon reveals that a final showdown will take place involving Jack's friend Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) and President Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones).
It's expected that Jack will survive though since a 24 movie is potentially in the works.
Will U be tuning in to the big 2-hour finale?

As the eighth and final season of 24 is slowly coming to a close, fans of the series are anxiously awaiting to see how it will all wrap up.
No better source to ask this question to than the stars themselves!
Last night was the show's series finale wrap party and Kiefer Sutherland let it slip that instead of the "massive crisis" type ending fans are used to, the upcoming finale will be "much more personal."
How so? Well, Jack Bauer's right-hand gal Chloe, played by Mary Lynn Rajskub gave that one away. When she asked about the ending, she said it was to be:
"Big big big, bigger than ever… Chloe and Jack confrontation."
Whoa! That means NOTHING to us!
But does it mean something to U? Do U want to see a "Chloe and Jack confrontation" go down in the finale?
