Kiefer Sutherland has just been named US TV's top-paid actor - taking home $550,000 for every outing as counter-terrorist agent Jack Bauer. But fans of the series will be sad to know it could be coming to an end.
TV bosses at Fox, who commission the show, are currently deciding whether to renew its contract after Kiefer and co are done filming the upcoming season.
"It's going to come down to a business decision," said the network's head of programming.
"It's not an inexpensive show on the network books and we also want to finish strong. This is not a show we want to prop up."

"There was a huge connection between us but... it was more like friends than the passionate relationship that she or I would have wanted. She saw that; I did not." - Kiefer Sutherland on Julia Roberts
Kiefer Sutherland is set to wed for a third time.
The '24' star, whose divorce from Elizabeth Kelly Winn was finalised last month, is reportedly planning to marry his new girlfriend Siobhan Bonnouvrier.
A friend of Kiefer's said: "Now that Kiefer is finally divorced, everyone is hoping he will marry Siobhan. Kiefer is a changed man and Siobhan is just the right woman for him. She is an amazing woman and has transformed Kiefer in just a few short weeks."
Kiefer has been "fit and focused" since he left prison and is ready to commit himself to the 35-year-old magazine director.
The source added: "She isn't the least bit bothered by his fame or wild past and the relationship has blossomed. They are both looking for long-term commitment so they are on the same page in terms of relationship goals.
"Everyone is hoping Kiefer finally settles down and find happiness with her. You can tell just by looking at them they are madly in love."
Jack Bauer isn't untouchable after all.
TMZ has learned that "24" star Kiefer Sutherland was busted on suspicion of DUI in West Hollywood last night, after allegedly blowing more than twice the legal limit of .08. This is the actor's second DUI in the past five years -- he was arrested in 2004. By California law, if he's convicted, he must serve a mandatory minimum of five days in jail.
Police sources tell TMZ 40-year-old Sutherland was pulled over around 1:35 AM PST on the corner of La Cienega and Beverly. Sutherland was at the FOX Fall Eco-Casino party at Area nightclub earlier that evening. The photo in this story was taken at the event.
Sutherland, who was stopped after making an illegal U-turn, was arrested for misdemeanor DUI and transported to the Hollywood Police station. He was booked at 4:09 AM and released at 5:42 AM on $25,000 bail.
We're told Sutherland was "cooperative and mellow" while he was in custody.
According to the L.A. Sheriff's Dept. website, the actor is 5'10" and weighs 150 lbs. Sutherland is scheduled to face a judge on October 16. A rep for Sutherland told TMZ "It would be premature to comment at this time."
He\'s so messed up!
