Fans of the series 24 can celebrate because Jack Bauer is back to protect the world from terrorists. Keifer Sutherland has already begun filming the series in London, which is where the story will take place. The spinoff show, which is called 24: Live Another Day, will run for only 12 episodes, instead of the usual 24, allowing the story to jump ahead in time, rather than keeping the real-time format.
The story: It’s been four years since Jack went off the grid he’s still on the run as a fugitive, pursued by CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski). He ends in London up trying to stop a planned presidential assassination which could lead to a new world war. Circumstances reunite Jack with old ally Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), and he gets aid from goth girl Mary Lynn Rajskub.
Sutherland says, “Our job right now is one thing: Make these the best 12 episodes of 24, period.”
24: Live Another Day is coming to Fox TV on May 5th 2014.
