I wasn’t expected Jack Bauer to return. Imagine my surprise when I saw the Union Jack getting punctured with bullet holes. Jack Bauer will return to FOX in May! Check out the details below!

Synopsis: 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a thrilling new event series set to restart the ticking clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama. The high-octane saga reunites the Emmy Award-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Brian Grazer and director Jon Cassar. It also will retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving storylines. 

Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland). Four years ago, Jack was a fugitive from justice. Now an exile, he nevertheless is willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster. Tracking Jack are CIA head STEVE HARRIS (Benjamin Bratt, "Law & Order"); CIA agent KATE MORGAN (Yvonne Strahovski, "Dexter"), who is both resourceful and ruthless; JORDAN REED (Giles Matthey, "Jobs"), a smart and sophisticated CIA computer tech; and ERIK RITTER (Gbenga Akinnagbe, "The Wire"), a sharp, strong and arrogant field operative. Calling the shots is JAMES HELLER (William Devane, "The Dark Knight Rises"), now President of the United States. Heller is flanked by his Chief of Staff MARK BOUDREAU (Tate Donovan, "Damages"), who is married to Heller's daughter -- Jack's former flame, AUDREY (Kim Raver, "Revolution"). Meanwhile, a hardened CHLOE O'BRIAN (Mary Lynn Rajskub, "Firewall"), Bauer's CTU confidante, is now working underground with high-profile hacker ADRIAN CROSS (Michael Wincott, "The Crow"). Guest stars on 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY include Golden Globe Award winner Judy Davis ("Life with Judy Garland") and Golden Globe Award nominee Stephen Fry ("Alice in Wonderland," BONES). The harrowing day will have Jack attempting to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever.

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY arrives May 5th 2014!

Yeah! Glad to see Jack Bauer back.

I guess they are giving Chloe the Lisbeth Salander look.

 This is exellent news. The only thing that would make this better is if the Shield came back on.

You can't keep a good man down

I still blame the writer's strike for putting this show in a box before it's time, should've gone 10 seasons for sure.  by the 4th season this fall primetime show was waiting until January to debut it's new season so as to spare the viewers a mid-season hiatus.......the timing of the writer's strike forced the series to skip an entire season, everything they did after that (a tv movie and 2 seasons to follow) was pretty underwhelming and disappointing.  By the time it was over, most were glad to see it put out of its misery.......but I knew it was gonna be missed.......and now.........JACK's BACK!!!!!!!!

I'm so curious to see how this plays out, 24 down to 12 eps will be quite the change, and if it's a ratings hit, will they bring it back for another season?  Does it become a new regular summer series?!?

Wow! Can't believe there are Maniacs here that are fans of the show. Thought I was the only one.

I never missed any of the episodes of this series but had no friends or family into. Then again, this show was meant for you to watch from the beginning of the season.

I do admit, I was getting bored of the 24 hour format. It was fun at first but got tiring. I would have preferred had they had the same premise (Jack on a time clock) but not be exactly 24 hours. That's why Iiked the mini series.

I'm guessing these 12 episodes will take place in 24 hours but sped up, the first 2 hours of the day in episode 1, etc... That would explain Jack's fast commuting through traffic. LOL!

So Audrey, Chloe, James Heller are all back. Glad to see Michael Wincott back in action. That guy was everywhere in the 90s.

Oh...c'mon Fox...you have to bring Tony Almeida back! What's 24 without Tony?

From wiki:

Set four years after the events of season 8, the series will loosely adhere to the real time concept; while it will still cover the events of a single day with each episode corresponding to an hour, there will be jumps forward in time between certain episodes. The series will begin with a two-hour premiere on May 5, 2014

 Yes!!!!!!  I was waiting for the official announcement/ trailer.  I'd been following it since I heard they were continuing on.

@Wish. Odd thing is that now most shows regularly have a mid-season break which I hate.

 I had heard nothing of this for a long time. For me the best part of the Super Bowl was hearing the beeps during the ad for this. Very, very excited to get my Jack fix again. only a 12 episode season? So... it's 12 not 24? I am okay with that. I would take 6 and be happy. Welcome back Jack.
