24 Returns with a Synopsis and Premiere Date

24 was one of my favourite shows; the character of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) was a complete badass who would have no trouble sacrificing himself for the greater good. He’s lost pretty much everything and I’ve missed his adventures. Well, Jack Bauer is returning in (the rather James Bond sounding) Live Another Day. Expect plenty of tension, heavy breathing and Jack shouting “DAMMIT!” a lot.

Check out the synopsis below:

SYNOPSIS: The high-octane saga reunites the Emmy Award-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury and Brian Grazer; and executive producer and director Jon Cassar.

Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer (Sutherland), as he attempts to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever. Retaining the real-time, nail-biting, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving storylines, the highly-anticipated series also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub (“Firewall”), Kim Raver (“Revolution”) and William Devane (“The Dark Knight Rises”) reprising their original roles. Newcomers to the drama series include Yvonne Strahovski (“Dexter”), Giles Matthey (“Jobs”), Gbenga Akinnagbe (“The Wire”), Michael Wincott (“The Crow”) and Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Judy Davis (“Life with Judy Garland”). 

24: Live Another Day explodes back onto screens on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
