’24’ and Jack Bauer Set To Return To Fox TV
24 became “appointment television” for my wife Sweetie and me during its final 3 seasons, so we can’t wait to see what’s next for Jack Bauer and company! Fellow 24 fans, get ready to have your pulse rate increase again very soon! “The following takes place between…”

“If this ends up rebooting the show or causing a film to be made, so be it, but we’re very happy about these 12 episodes right now,” said Sutherland, who noted Live Another Day is not the same story as the long-delayed 24 feature. “The script for the film is very different. It’s an ongoing situation, and there’s always an opportunity to do it.”
Personally, I can’t wait to see what’s happened to Jack, Chloe, and the other characters, including the new ones referenced in the article (read the entire post at the link below)! 24 was truly unique television, and I hope they maintain the same pulse-pounding, never-know-what’s-coming-next type of show in this mini-revival!
