A very optimistic take on why "24: Live Another Day" will get another go-around

HuffPo has a long article speculating that "24: Live Another Day" will get another limited series order because it managed to revitalize itself in today's increasingly chaotic world:
With comments from the head of the Fox broadcast TV network this week to the effect that he is looking forward to another season, it's clear that the return of 24, which wrapped up a 12-episode limited series run last week, has been a real success. Given that the show had seemed near played out when it ended its eight-season run four years ago, the question is why the longest-running espionage TV series in history seems still to have a lot of life left in it 13 years after it first ran.
I think it's a combination of the revitalized quality of the show and the very disquieting nature of the times we live in.
I was hoping that there would be an announcement of a tenth season at today's "24" panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, but alas, nothing on that front. There was this interesting tidbit, though:
Well, I'm going to do my part to try to persuade Fox to bring it back: can't wait for "24: Live Another Day" to come out on DVD....
