24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY Gets A Two Hour Premiere In May
Jack Bauer is all set for his return to TV! When it was announced last year that 24 would be returning, a lot of people wasn’t really sure what it would mean for the series. What we did eventually find out though is that the show will return with 12 episodes, will be shot and take place in London and will return such stars Kiefer Southerland and Mary Lynn Rajskub.
Now, Fox has announced the premiere date for the show, as well as given it a 2 hour premiere. 24: Live Another Day will debut on May 5th and will be followed the following week by the normal hour time frame. The series is bringing some new comers as well in Yvonne Strahovski, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott and Judy Davis. Check out the full press release below, and make sure to check back at Comic Book Therapy for the latest on the series.
The iconic pulse-pounding clock resets when 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY premieres with a special two-hour television event Monday, May 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and makes its time period premiere the following week on Monday, May 12 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). 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”).
