FOX continues getting its 2014 house in order today, setting up freshman drama 'Sleepy Hollow' for a second season, and now shoring up details of Jack Bauer's big '24' return in 2014 limited series '24: Live Another Day.' New production reports have detailed that the on-the-run agent will shoot in London for a more internationally-oriented season of counter-terrorism, along with an update on the revival's timeline.
24: Live Another Day
It's been a good long while since we've heard anything on the front of 2014 '24' revival 'Live Another Day,' but it seems Jack Bauer may have even more familiar company than Chloe O'Brian when the terrorism-countering agent is called out of retirement once more. Multiple-season love interest Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) is nearing a deal to return for the new season, but what state will '24: Live Another Day' see her in?
For as intrigued as we were to learn upcoming '24' revival, '24: Live Another Day,' would include fan-favorite Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn-Rajskub) and have more of an international flair, one crucial question remains: How will the famously-formatted series condense its story to 12 hours, and what might have changed for Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) when the story picks up?
Earlier today we heard the fantastic news that FOX's 2014 '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' would return classic CTU analyst Chloe O'Brien (Mary Lynn Rajskub) to assist in Jack Bauer's latest outing, but very little is known of what the revival series' story will actually reveal in its 12-episode run. Now, new comments from FOX chairman Kevin Reilly have given us a clue what to expect from '24: Live Another Day'
Well, this should come as very little surprise. For as long as FOX decided to revive the '24' franchise with upcoming limited series '24: Live Another Day,' we never expected Kiefer Sutherland to prove the only franchise veteran reprising his role. Thankfully, Jack's phone will once again be buzzing with the sounds of Mary Lynn Rajskub's voice, returning in her analyst role as Chloe O’Brian.
FOX has officially joined the ranks of broadcast networks to release their fall 2013-2014 premiere schedule, leaving ABC the lone holdout. Among the bigger changes on deck for the network, 'The X-Factor' will debut over two nights with a solid four hours, while 'Bones' moves to Fridays in November, and the much buzzed-about '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' has a semi-official premiere date set for May 2014.
For as much as we're still trying to wrap our heads around Jack Bauer's 2014 return in limited series '24: Live Another Day,' fans of the iconic series anxiously await news of what former stars, beside Kiefer Sutherland, will return for the surprise revival. If nothing else, the franchise will remain in good hands as veteran '24' director Jon Cassar has signed up to return to the series, but who else is on board?
Now that Jack Bauer's big return '24: Live Another Day' has been set in stone for 2014, fans of the long-running Kiefer Sutherland series patiently await news of what returning franchise players will pop up in the unexpected revival. Where earlier we heard Mary Lynn Rajskub's Chloe remained a likely candidate for a reappearance, '24: Live Another Day' has cast its first major returning player in writer/executive producer David Fury.
