Tv - 24 Returning To Tv For Limited Run

Hit action series 24 is returning to the small screen for a limited 12-episode run.

Reports recently surfaced online suggesting Kiefer Sutherland's famous counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer would be heading back to Tv, and now executive producer David Fury has confirmed the news.

He posted a link on his Twitter.com page on Friday (10May13) directing fans to a Deadline.com article about the supposed revival, and wrote, "Yep, I'm pulling double duty along w/ (with) (new pilot) Tyrant. Whoo & Hoo!"

Sutherland is said to be in talks to reprise his action-packed role for America's Fox network following the cancellation of his latest Tv series, Touch, on Thursday (09May13).

The news will be warmly welcomed by 24 fans - plans to turn the drama into a movie have failed to come to fruition following the end of the show's eighth season in 2010, and director Antoine Fuqua recently suggested the film had been shelved.

24's revival comes as Bollywood star Anil Kapoor, who played Middle Eastern President Omar Hassan on the show in 2010, prepares to launch an Indian version of the series, which will be set in Mumbai.
