My wife and I have watched every season of 24 and she just told me about this announcement today. Of course everyone is going to debate whether or not they will end the show with Jack's death. That's all I remember anyone talking about when the last season aired a few years back.

24 was my 3rd favorite show behind LOST and Battlestar Galactica.

May 5th is the date Jack returns.

The clock resets when 24: Live Another Day premieres with a special two-hour television event on Monday, May 5 at 8 PM, followed by its time period premiere the following week in 24‘s signature Monday 9 PM slot. Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series again will follow the exploits of agent Jack Bauer (Sutherland) as he attempts to thwart a terrorist attack. Retaining the real-time format with split screens and interweaving storylines, the series also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, and William Devane reprising their original roles. Newcomers include Yvonne Strahovski, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott, and Judy Davis. The event series reunites the Emmy-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury and Brian Grazer; and executive producer and director Jon Cassar.

Awesome. With only 12 eps, I hope they go straight to torture and trashing the Constitution instead of wasting time on one of Kim's bad dates. Ain't nobody got time fo dat.

Can't wait! My wife and I are eagerly awaiting for it to start again.
Rumors now that they might reboot the show again.

As for what Live Another Day means for 24's future on Fox, Sutherland said that he's not necessarily on board to star in a reboot. "When I said reboot, I never said I was a part of it," he said, to a few laughs. "There's a lot of fantastic characters. When we started the show, I said that the star was 24, the concept. I still believe that very strongly. If an audience were to latch on to a younger character who was helping my character, that would certainly be an option."

Forget everyone & everything else. With just a gun and a laptop, Jack and Chloe could stop any terrorist attack. (And the necessity of a gun is questionable).

:D

That's what Jack's about. He uses a gun as a last resort. His fists and nearby objects work much better.

:D

While I am looking forward to this, I am also prepared for a letdown.

Great news. I read the 12 eps will NOT be done in real time.
Jack ;) was on the Jonathan Ross show over the weekend, and although didn't give much away did confirm that it's still in real-time, just each episode covers 2 hours to give them more flexibility for travelling and the like.

Thing I found most interesting is that it's set in London and visits other European cities so I assume won't be based around CTU.

When it first aired, it was a real game changer and the first few seasons were superb. I felt it lost it's way a little from about season 4, and they struggled to find a way to move it on.

That said, looking forward to it at the beginning of May
