Jack Bauer Will Return!
Fox Television Productions have announced the commissioning of a ninth season of 24 for broadcast in the near future. Titled Live Another Day, this new twelve-episode run will once again star Kiefer Sutherland in its lead role as Jack Bauer, picking up from the dramatic events of Season Eight (2010) and taking Bauer on his most dangerous and life-threatening mission yet. Quite whether 24 can still provide surprises to its audience as a thirteen-year old action thriller television franchise is up to debate for this writer, yet clearly the market's still there for this show and so there's perhaps more life in the storylines yet.
24: Live Another Day will broadcast on Fox and an unannounced UK network starting from May 2014.
