Freeze it right there — that’s Jack Bauer! America’s favorite time-battling hero is back after four years, and this newly released trailer of his upcoming 12-episode event series promises that ’24’ will be more heart-stopping than ever. Read on to watch it!
If the world is in jeopardy, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) will be there to save it. 24 fans were given another exciting look at the upcoming event series, 24: Live Another Day, on Mar. 8, and now expectations will be even higher!
New ’24: Live Another Day’ Trailer
Based on what we see in this brand new sneak peek, the 12-episode event series will pick up with Jack in exile running from the CIA, who think he’s an enemy of the state. But he’s just trying to help!
His paternal instincts towards the United States kick in when the president (William Devane) travels to London to meet the British Prime Minister (Stephen Fry), a meeting that inadvertently sets the perfect stage for a terror strike.
24: Live Another Day will have Jack Bauer doing all sorts of badass things to try to avert a global disaster (he mentions world war in the trailer) while also trying to evade the clutches of his own untrusting (ungrateful) government.
The event series, which comes to TV on May 5, will also star Yvonne Strahovski, Tate Donovan, and Benjamin Bratt, and Mary Lynn Rajskub will be reprising her role as Chloe O’Brian.
We’ve been dying for more 24 and more Jack Bauer since the show went off the air in 2010, so this trailer just whets our appetites even more. It’s going to be one wild 24-hour ride.
