The beloved Fox action-drama 24 is returning for 12 more episodes. Although the show has yet to start filming, the network has already announced that the limited event will begin on May 5th.

In addition to the 12 episode mini series, fans may be in for even more 24 with the long-anticipated film is still in the works as well.

The upcoming event is titled 24: Live Another Day, and will feature Jack Bauer fighting in intense action sequences just as he did in the original 24 that ran from 2001 until 2010.

Fans of the series are certainly expecting great things, but reboots are also never as good as the originals, and some fans might prefer to simply leave the series alone.

Howard Gordon, an executive producer on the show is excited about where the show is heading and talked about how doing something that you are proud of can take a lot of time and effort.

Gordon said “We have every hope that we are going to maintain the quality we had, but it was a marathon. It was punishing. There’s a horizon with this. With 24, you could never see the other side of the stories.”

The 24 revival will keep the same format that made the show such a groundbreaking hit, and play out in real-time as Jack Bauer attempts to save the United States. 24: Live Another Day will feature Bauer attempting to stop a terrorist attack that could change the world forever.

The series will also be set and shot on location in London, England. When the show ended, Jack Bauer was a fugitive, and now four years later, he is still on the run. He is being hunted by a CIA Agent, and is a fugitive of high order. Yvonne Strahovski will join the cast as the CIA Agent that is pursuing him.

In addition, the new 24 cast will include Mary Lynn Rajskub, William Devane, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott and Judy Davis.

For any 24 fans that have been going crazy in the few years that it has been off the air, they can finally find comfort in the fact that Kiefer’s Sutherland’s beloved Jack Bauer will be returning to Fox. The show will premiere on Monday, May 5th at 8 p.m.

    Let me guess? The war on terror is losing steam so they need to pump up the masses.

    24 was an excellent series for a while…. then it became so much of the same old same old ….. in fact, that is the way it has been for years now….. ever since 9/11 …. the bad guys are always terrorists ….

    Funny thing is …. now all the evidence is now showing that 9/11 is an inside job …. I say is … because it is still going on …. I knew it was an inside job based on three things A) you never see a plane at the pentagon. I have been there. The place is covered in cameras. We should have at least one clear picture. B) all the firefighters accounts of bombs going off and then the deaths of some outspoke fire fighters and C) the two passports that survived the jet explosion that suppossedly melted steel and then similarly, the lack of a plane in shanksville.

    Oh yeah …. I almost forgot …. BUILDING 7. No building in the history of man has fallen from fires. In fact, you can literally go pull up buildings that burned for days and never fell.

      Scares me that simple minded nutcases like you walk among the rest of us. Way to use an innocent article about a fictional show returning as a platform for your lunatic conspiracy theories.

      • @Mike

        Show me a plane at shanksville and the pentagon.
        Show me how building 7 fell when no other building like that has ever fallen due to fires.
        Show me how a paper passport can survive that plane crash and fireball.
        Explain to me the airline stock market activity the days before 9/11.

        No Sir. It is you and the people like you who are the nutcases. You will believe anything, no matter how crazy. Things that defy logic and the laws of pshyics. You will believe a plane hit the Pentagon when not one person has shown you a plane hitting the building. Have you been to the Pentagon? I have. It is covered in cameras. All the buildings around the Pentagon are covered in cameras. We should have at least one picture. Just one!

        This isn’t just a fictional show. It was designed to reinforce the terrorism agenda. Are you this stupid?

        Then again, you believe a plane hit the most secure building in the world and not one picture exists of it. You are pretty stupid.

      • @Mike

        You need to watch this video. Just past it in your browser.


        If you still believe the “official” story, well God Bless you because it is you who is the nutcase. Not a damn thing makes sense in the official story.

        I have to agree with the others Mike. The evidence is overwhelming over a cover up. They knew withing two hours that it was Osama Bin Laden. That is impossible. I know cops right now that can’t determine the cause of a simple traffic accident in two hours let alone the events of 9/11.

        I think you are drinking the koolaid. I watched the video from the person above me. It is highly accurate. I think you should watch it.

        Then again, you won’t. You are afraid. You believe a government that constantly lies to you.

        Face facts Mikey. 9/11 was an inside job. The evidence is overwhelming. My best friend was a firefighter in New York on that day. We have talked an awful lot about that day. He said that the majority of firefighters know there were bombs in the buildings.

        Go out to YouTube and pull up the video called: Firefighters for 9/11 truth. Go to the 27 minute mark and look at the evidence. Just start watching and being realistic. How does a business card survive a jet fuel fire when it won’t even survive my barbecue fire. Simple basic stuff like that.

          I was in the city, and i SAW WITH MY OWN TWO EYES INFRONT OF ME, two planes crash into the twin towers. Sorry, but you people and your conspiracy theories can shove it. Seeing two plains first hand fly into the world trade center in person, i cant believe nor stand any of this crap about them being an inside job, especially when al-queda PROUDLY took responsibility of the crashes. Its disgusting to read what people like you all insinuate.

          • J. T.

            No one is saying that planes did not fly into the towers. Yes, planes flew into them, but there was also bombs.

            Of course you saw planes. But you have no idea who was controlling those planes. You were TOLD that information. At the end of the day, the ONLY thing you saw was planes going into the buildings. That is all. As to who was on those planes, you don’t have a clue.

            What is disgusting is what people like you fail to realize or admit. YES you saw planes and THAT IS ALL YOU SAW. YOU HAVE NO CLUE WHO WAS ON THOSE PLANES. But of course, you believe a paper passport would survive the explosion that was supposedly hot enough to weaken steel.

            It doesn’t make sense, because it is impossible.

          • J. T.

            By the way, Osama Bin Laden actually is on record saying he was not responsible for the attacks. This is worldwide knowledge.

            But maybe it was one of the four different Bin Ladens, the government gave us pictures of. Or maybe it was the one who was treated for his Kidney failure at a US military hospital just months before the attack.

          • @Cody

            I have to agree with the other people. All you saw were planes hitting a building.

            That is it.

            I have a friend who was a firefighter at that site. He heard bombs. My friend is extremely credible and would not lie. He is also ex-military and knows what a bomb sounds like. He doesn’t deny planes but he said there is a lot more than just planes going on. We forget the empire state building was hit by a fully fueled bomber and never fell. The towers were built better than the Empire state building.

          • @Cody

            So you saw two planes. Did you see with your own two eyes who was piloting those planes? I doubt it. All you saw were planes hitting a building.

  • J. T.

    Here is a great video about how ludicrous the Pentagon story is.


    It is 3 hours long and extremely credible. The more you look at the facts. The more that everything does not add up.
