Actor Kiefer Sutherland reprises his role as the unapologetic hero Jack Bauer who does whatever it takes to thwart terrorists. The last time viewers saw Bauer he was yet again a fugitive from the country he’s dedicated the better part of his life to save to the detriment of his family. In the latest incarnation of the Fox series, “24: Live Another Day” is set in London.
In the new series which premieres on March 5, Bauer is still on the run and a team of CIA agents Played by Benjamin Bratt and Yvonne Strahovski who are both calculating and resourceful are on his trail. William Devane is back as Heller and he is now the Commander in Chief. Bauer’s former flame and now first daughter played by Kim Raver is also back with a new hubby who is also the President’s Chief of Staff played by Donovan Tate. A “24” series would not be complete without Jack Bauer’s lifeline in the field, Chloe O’Brian played by Mary Lynn Rajskub.
The series promises the same “pulse-pounding” action and several interconnected storylines all counting down in real-time. Can’t wait? “24: Live Another Day” premieres on Monday May 5 at 9 p.m. on Fox, WAGA-TV in Atlanta. Check out the show’s Facebook page for updates and new trailers.
