Did Kiefer Sutherland just say goodbye to '24'?

May 18, 2009 |  1:39 pm

24 Kiefer Sutherland kicked off the Fox upfront presentation with his usual kind words to advertisers. But then he said something that caught our attention -- and made us nervous.

"24" fans know that Jack Bauer is dying -- find out his fate on tonight's season finale -- and Sutherland's contract is up next year. It has been the subject of much speculation in the industry and observers have wondered if the series will end next year.

"I don't know how many more times I'm gonna have the opportunity to say this," the actor said before calling his time on "24" as the "greatest experience I've had so far in my career and in my personal life."

Sutherland also thanked the advertisers for their role in the show's success.

"It sounds trite," he said. "But you've helped me become part of this family."

Was he saying goodbye?
