Most of the casting announcements for FOX's upcoming '24' revival, 'Live Another Day,' have either belonged to returning stars or relative unknowns, but the latest news emerging from FOX's TCA press tour is anything but small. Not only will 'Chuck' and 'Dexter' alum Yvonne Strahovski team up with Jack Bauer, but FOX has officially handed down the premiere date for Jack's two-hour return!

The 2013 year of TV greatness may be at an end, but with so many exciting premieres to come in 2014, we can’t wait for the next round to begin anew. From ‘The Walking Dead’ returning to Ron Moore’s latest Syfy original, we take a look into the future at the most exciting TV prospects to premiere and return in early 2014! That’s right, this is just the beginning of what the next year holds in store! Did your favorites make the grade?
Thus far, most of the castings announcements for '24' event series followup 'Live Another Day' have come from the existing pool of characters, though now it seems one of our first newbies will seriously get on Jack Bauer's bad side. Emmy-winner Judy Davis has been announced for a recurring role as a German arms dealer, but what could put her in Jack Bauer's path?
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.
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.
