Jack is back. Yes, Jack Bauer is back to our screens, starting on May 5 as a 2 hour special event and lasting 12 episodes of 24: Live Another Day.
(Almost) Four years after the series finale (aired on May 24, 2010), the show returns as a "limited series event", an euphemism made up by tv networks so they do not commit to a show. If it gets good ratings, it'll be back next year; if numbers are not good, everybody moves on and that's it.
Jack Bauer, still a fugitive as he was in the series finale, shows up in London, and it's no surprise Chloe O'Brien is around too.
We will also see the return of William Devane as James Heller, now President of the United States of America, and Kim Raver as Audrey Raines. The main cast is completed by Yvonne Strahovski as Kate Morgan, a CIA field operative; Benjamin Bratt as Steve Navarro, the head of CIA operations who's tracking Jack Bauer; and Tate Donovan as Mark Boudreau, White House Chief of Staff, also the husband of Audrey Raines.
24: Live Another Day will be simulcast in Canada on Global Television Network, and will be broadcasted in some European countries via Sky Networks on May 6, same as in Latin America via Canal Fox.
