Interview! Soaps.com sat in during a conference call with the star of the show Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer). When asked if the show’s special limited return proves to be successful would he agree to come back for a season two Sutherland replied, “I would never say no, because it’s just too easy for something to happen. But it is not something that I’m thinking about and it’s not something that I think Howard or anybody else is thinking about. I think once we realized we were going to do this and we actually started the process of obviously the writers with the scripts, Jon Cassar and myself doing our pre-production, we became so focused on trying to make these the best 12 episodes of 24, period, and we have four episodes left to do. I feel very, very strong about the first eight episodes that we have completed. Now, we just need to really bring it home. And then we’ll see where we’re at. I would never want to say, ‘No, I absolutely will not do that,’ because I don’t know.”

Interview! Soaps.com sat in during a conference call with Co-Executive Producer Matt Selman. When asked if the show ever considered to have someone other than Homer as POV for FOX's special LEGO episode, which aired on May 4, Selman replied, "I think no; I think it was pretty much always Homer from the beginning. I mean we really locked in early, like I remember me and Brian pitching the story to Al and Jim Brooks and we said, 'It can't just be, there has to be like,' and like this is coming from them, like the direction that they're always giving us, and it's like, 'there has to be strong, relatable, real family emotion at the heart of it, or it's just going to be a bunch of craziness.' Right. And the area of like parents and how the interact with their children and children aging and playing with children is so part of our daily lives we really thought we're like we're the Homers of our own life now with our kids. We're 42, you know, so it’s like we really kind of wrote it from the perspective of the dad watching his kids grow up." Tune in Sundays at 8:00 PM.
