Fox confirmed today that it will bring back the drama series "24." Reuters reports that star Kiefer Sutherland is on board for the return of the show, set for summer 2014.
"’24: Live Another Day’ brings back Sutherland as counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer in the series that follows his race against the clock to foil presidential assassination attempts and chemical weapons attacks," the story reports. "The new 12-episode miniseries will represent 24 hours in Bauer’s life, following the same real-time format that became the series’ trademark."
In a statement, Sutherland said: "The response to ’24’ is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before. To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend."
"The series, which originally ran for eight seasons between 2001 and 2010, won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006, and Sutherland won an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in the same year," the report notes.
