Fox is definitely making sure we’re fully thirsting for 24: Live Another Day by the time the event series returns on May 5. A new teaser dropped on March 25 and the heat is clearly going to be on Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) from the first minute. Gunfights, CIA backstabbing, and a whole lot of shouting — it has it all. Read on to watch the brand-new 24 teaser, then tell us how excited YOU are for the series’ return!
New ’24: Live Another Day’ Promo Released
It’s been four years since Kiefer has stepped into Jack Bauer’s badass shoes on 24, but the talented actor is easing (read: roaring) back into the role in a new Fox promo for 24: Live Another Day.
In case you haven’t heard, 24: Live Another Day is a new 12-episode event premiering Monday May 5 on Fox, which will mark the return of Jack Bauer to television. (The original Fox series, 24, ended its nine year run in May of 2010).
24: Live Another Day — Jack’s Being Hunted
We all know Jack Bauer is a hero and the best man for the job when it comes to stopping terrorists dead in their tracks, but in the new promo for 24: Live Another Day, Jack is seen in exile in London, running from the CIA, who suspects that Jack is an enemy of the state. (Umm, they probably need to get some new “intelligence” in there).
Either way, based on the new promo it’s clear Jack’s in major danger, with one unidentified character saying, “Take him alive, if possible, but you all know what this man is capable of.” Uh-oh!
In addition to Kiefer Sutherland reprising his role as the Director of Field Ops Jack Bauer, fellow 24 star (and fan favorite) Mary Lynn Rajskub will also reprise her role as CTU Systems analyst Chloe O’Brian from the hit series. The series also stars Tate Donovan, William Devane as the President, whose trip to London to meet the British Prime Minister (Stephen Fry) sets the stage for a potential terror strike, and Yvonne Strahovski, who is best known for her recurring role as serial killer Hannah McKay on Showtime’s Dexter.
