PASADENA, Calif. — Jack is back, in London, as 24 returns May 5 with a new season that's half the length of previous ones but still takes place over a single day.

Fox's 24: Live Another Day is reassembling Kiefer Sutherland's rogue agent, his trusty sidekick Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub), his onetime love Audrey Heller (Kim Raver) and her dad (William Devane), who's now president.

The ninth season of the show is set four years after the eighth, with Jack still in exile, and this time, he and Chloe are "pitted against each other," Sutherland says.

Jack remains on the run, "not quite Osama bin Laden but a fugitive of high order," says producer Manny Coto. "When he resurfaces, we will learn he has a mission, whether it's good or bad we don't know, but they're hunting him." He reconnects with Chloe, who has "turned against the government; (she's) more a radical Snowden-type character," he says. With another hot-button issue — drone strikes — factored in, events will "launch the series into what will be a large tableaux set in London for some crazy events."

Executive producer Howard Gordon says the setting in London, where the show will begin filming later this month, was critical in highlighting the exiled state of its hero. "We found a place emotionally to locate Jack, physically to locate jack, and Chloe — who is not his trusty sidekick — someone who is damaged, has joined the free-information movement."
Rajskub says she "never thought 24 would come back and I never thought it would come back in this format. I just gotten away from (people) yelling out 'Chloe!' and I'm ready for it to start back up again."

Writing 24-episode seasons was "a marathon, it was really, really punishing," Gordon says. The new 12-episode plan is liberating. But the format remains the same: Though the season will still take place in real time over the course of a single day, but fewer episodes will allow writers to sometimes jump forward a couple of hours between them.

Producers say, only half-jokingly, that they sometimes need Wikipedia to remember what they've written. When they thought of reviving Devane's character and making him president, "we all thought he was dead," Coto says. (That would be Gregory Itzin's President Logan.)

Whither the long-discussed 24 movie? Though a script has been written, it never received a greenlight. "If this ends up rebooting the show or causing a film to be made, so be it," Sutherland says. But "right now we're focused on these episodes."

LONDON CALLING JACK BAUER!!!

NEW ACTION-PACKED EVENT SERIES “24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY” TAKES JACK BAUER TO ENGLAND FOR 12 ACTION-PACKED EPISODES

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY Marks the First “24” Production to Film Abroad Since 2008 Telefilm “24: Redemption”

Twentieth Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and FOX are sending the production of 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY across the Atlantic to London for a thrilling international adventure, as the new tent-pole event series restarts the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. As previously announced, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX.

“‘24’ has always had such a global sensibility,” said Sutherland, who also serves as an executive producer on the event series. “But to be able to tell this intense ‘24’-style story with the beauty of Europe’s history and architecture as the backdrop is going to be fascinating. Hopefully, by the time you’re finished watching an episode, you’ll feel like you’ve been there...on the edge of your seat.”

Co-showrunner and executive producer Evan Katz added, “We wanted the show’s return to be an event, and part of that was putting Jack in a very different context. Four years ago, we left Jack a fugitive from justice and we’re going to pick him up four years later in London.”

Co-showrunner and executive producer Manny Coto continued, “Jack is soon back on the run and it takes us into the streets of London and in places that break new ground for the show. We’ve shot in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and Cape Town -- but now we’re in London and Jack’s loose on the streets of Europe, hunted by and hunting bad guys.”

Originally premiering November 6, 2001, “24” was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over the course of eight seasons, and a two-hour telefilm, Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor – Drama Series. While the series gained global recognition, Sutherland’s portrayal of the legendary character penetrated the American psyche like no other dramatic television character to become part of the cultural lexicon.

24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a production of 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television in association with Teakwood Lane Productions. Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer and Kiefer Sutherland will executive produce, along with an additional team to be announced. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran.

Jack is back!

24: Live Another Day, Fox's highly anticipated reboot of the beloved show, has officially kicked off production on the 12-episode miniseries in London. And how great is it to see Kiefer Sutherland back in action as Jack Bauer?

And it looks like the series will be as intense as ever as Sutherland was seen covered in dirt and surrounded by flipped over cars and fire. Ah, feels just like old times, right? Except this time, there are Union Jack flags surrounding the fugitive, as well as adorable red telephone boxes.

And let the countdown clock to May 4 at 8 p.m. officially begin!
