Jack Bauer is back for another round in the popular television show, 24: Live Another Day. Bauer is played by Kiefer Sutherland.
The original 24 went off the air in 2010. The show premiered in the fall of 2001. On the series, Bauer tries to save the country from disaster, according to the Associated Press.
The show picks up where it left off, according to The Daily Beast. Bauer has just fled to avoid being captured by both Russian and American authorities. Fans will recognize a lot of what made the show so popular in the first place, including the jittery camera moves, the pounding percussive music score, and the clanking on-screen clock.
24: Live Another Day was created by Robert Cochran and Joel Surnow. In the show, Jack Bauer comes out of hiding in London to head off a terrorist attack while being followed by American forces dispatched by President James Heller, played by William Devane. Benjamin Bratt stars in the series as Steve Navarro and Gbenga Akinnagbe stars as Erik Ritter. Also returning to the series is Kim Raver, who is Bauer’s former love interest, Audrey.
The show returns to television on May 5 on Fox.
