A Peek at Day 8 of 24

You'll never guess how the new season of 24 comes together. Jack Bauer is just relaxing, ready to start a new life of not yelling "damn!" and punching people in the face, when all of a sudden terrorists screw everything up. The only thing that could have made this any less surprising is if he said, "I'm getting too old for this s***!"

Still, it's always awesome to watch Bauer do his thing, however ridiculous it may be, and Season 8 of 24 looks like it will be more of what has made this show a hit. Plus, joining the cast this year are Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff and former teen dream Freddie Prinze, Jr.

Fox has released an extended promo for the new season; check it out below.

24 premieres Sunday, January 17 on Fox.
