Sutherland is back as Jack Bauer...terrorist beware!

Bauer will return to kick some terrorist a-hole, with the new season finding him on the run in London. At the press conference announcing the new details for the show, it was also revealed that Sutherland will be joined by original cast-mates Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane, as well as a plethora of new faces. Among them, TV actors Yvonne Strahovski, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott and Judy Davis will appear in unspecified roles.

"I'm about as anxious and wound up as I've been in a long time," Sutherland told the audience at the Television Critics Association winter meeting this week (via Sky News). He continued, referring to the possibility of a 24 movie, "If this ends up rebooting the show or causing a film to be made, so be it. The film is sort of an ongoing situation."

Most of these familiar faces will be returning ot the show

"I have a lot of people who refuse to call me anyone but Chloe," Rajskub, who plays Chloe on the show, said at the conference. "I never thought 24 would come back and in this format."

The new season of 24 will air on FOX in the US, with the feature-length episode airing on 5 May. No word on when or whether the show might make the transition to British screens, not that this is as much of a problem anymore thanks to the wonders of the internet!
