"So help me God I will kill you, and you will stay dead this time!" And Jack Bauer means it! Season seven of Fox's 24 has been cooking for a long time now; the last new episode of the thriller aired (let's check our calendars) way back in May...of 2007. Thanks a lot, writers strike!
Things get back on course early next year, and season seven--barring any nuclear threats from terrorist sleeper cells--is due to kick off in January (producers actually used the time off to improve the show, they said). To prepare for the series' return, Fox has released a two-minute trailer (watch it here on TV.com), and it's full of what 24 fans have come to expect--explosions, guns, guns, guns, split-screen trickery, espionage, and Jack Bauer screaming at dudes.
Producers haven't been keeping details on season seven top secret. We know that season seven takes place in Washington DC, features a new female president (played by Cherry Jones), and sees Jack Bauer not working with the CTU for the first time.
Don't forget that seasons six and seven will be bridged by 24: Redemption, a special made-for-television movie that airs November 23.
Check out the trailer and let us know what you think!
