“24: Live Another Day” Update
24: Live Another Day sees terrorist hunter Jack Bauer as a fugitive on the run in London.
The twelve episode reboot of Fox’s hit action show, that unfolds within the space of 24 hours, was first announced last year, but specific story points are now surfacing.
At the Television Critics Association press tour, a twice yearly event that allows TV networks to showcase its upcoming and existing shows to the media, Kiefer Sutherland, who plays Bauer, said:
“I’m about as anxious and wound up as I have been in a long time. “There’s a great impetus for all of us to create something new with the show.”
Retaining its trademark split screens and real time format, the story unfolds four years after the events of season eight. Bauer is now being hunter by the CIA.
Also back are series regulars Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays computer whiz Chloe O’ Brien, Kim Raver and William Devane.
Yvonne Strahovski portrays the UK based CIA agent who is tracking down Bauer.
Aside from the new miniseries, the door is apparently still open to the frequently talked about 24 movie.
“If this ends up rebooting the show or causing a film to be made, so be it,” said Sutherland. “The film is sort of an ongoing situation.”
