Popcorn at the ready, people! "24" returns to Fox tonight.
Much like it’s protagonist, 24 just can’t be killed off. Jack Bauer returns tonight as your favorite (well, someone’s favorite) government agent tonight and we’re bound to get some adrenaline-filled action sequences, along with a few plain WTF moments in true 24 style. 24: Live Another Day is the appropriately titled revival of the original series, which ran between 2001 and 2010. The revival was originally intended to be a movie, but the idea never got green-lit and it seemed like Jack was out for good. Lo and behold, Fox picked up the show for a reunion season and after months of promotion, it premieres tonight, May 5 at 8PM.
Jack Bauer might be back, but is anyone still watching?
"It was like seeing a friend who you thought you said goodbye to for forever come back," Executive Producer Howard Gordon said about 24’s return to E!News.
Old favorites like Kim Raver, Bill Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub are all on the returning cast – thank goodness, because one Kiefer Sutherland does not a 24 make.
"Yeah, it's totally bizarre," Rajskub said about returning to TV as Chloe O' Brian. "This is something that happens once in a lifetime that I'm even on a show like this that's so successful. I never thought this was going to happen."
The show might have gotten slightly tired during the final years, but it did earn Sutherland a Golden Globe and an Emmy for his work. The question now is, four years later, who will be left to watch?
The cast of 24: Live Another Day looking just cool enough for the job.
