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.
Going on months now, we've heard plenty of casting reports from FX's Guillermo del Toro-adapted vampire thriller 'The Strain,' though little in the way of a highly-anticipated series order. That process continues today, as '24' vet Roger Cross has been announced to join the massive ensemble in an action-heavy role, but as whom, you ask?
'24' fans still eagerly await news of the first castings from 2014 revival '24: Live Another Day,' but for now, we can take comfort in the fact that one of its fan-favorite fallen characters is returning to TV. Louis Lombardi has joined the ranks of TNT's forthcoming period noir drama 'Lost Angels' (formerly ‘L.A. Noir‘) in an important recurring role, though the series has yet to set an official premiere date.
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?
There are immediate 'Game of Thrones' spoilers in the next paragraph. You have been warned.
In the latest episode of 'Game of Thrones,' Robb Stark's rebellion was put to a sudden and bloody end at the hands of the spiteful Walder Frey, the traitorous Roose Bolton and the crafty Lannister family. "The Red Wedding" saw Robb's pregnant wife stabbed to death and the King in the North shot full of arrows before being stabbed in the heart. However, the real kicker was the death of Robb's mother Catelyn, who had her throat cut after killing Frey's young wife.
It's the kind of scene you never forget, an event that will radically change the make-up of 'Game of Thrones' forever. There won't be a more memorable set of character deaths in 2013. How could someone top that?
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.
