I wasn't the most die hard of 24 fans and when it ended after eight seasons and a television movie, like many I felt it was overdue ending. However, like many I am also curious about FOX bringing the show back for a ninth season of twelve episodes, titled Live Another Day. Here's what we seem to know so far.
In terms of role reprising, we already know that Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer), Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe O'Brien), William Devine (James Heller) and Kim Raver (Audrey Raines) are all returning to the mini-series, which will open with a double bill episode. From the synopsis online, it seems that four years have passed since the eighth season and Jack has been hiding in London (where this season is being shot) while Chloe has been abetting Jack.
Other cast members in this production includes Dexter actress, Yvonne Strahovski as impulsve CIA field operative, Kate Morgan, QI's Stephen Fry as Prime Minister Trevor Davies, Judy Davis as Margot, a woman with terrorist links, Tate Donovan as Mark Boudreau, the husband of Audrey as well as Benjamin Bratt, Joseph Millson, Giles Matthey, Duncan Pow and Ross McCall.
24: Live Another Day will premiere on FOX from May 5th with a double bill and will air on Sky1 shortly afterwards.
