Better send your motorcade-attacking SWAT armor to the dry cleaners, because Fox has announced premiere dates for three of its upcoming series, and Jack Bauer will be back on your TV screen before you know it. The familiar countdown clock of 24 will start ticking again this spring, when 24: Live Another Day makes its debut on Monday, May 5 with a two-hour premiere. The limited-event series will run for 12 episodes—while still telling the story of a 24-hour day—and Kiefer Sutherland (duh), Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, and William Devane will all be back to reprise their original roles. Live Another Day will pick up four years after the events of the Season 8 finale, with Jack still on the run and being hunted by the U.S. government.
Also debuting this spring are new comedy Surviving Jack and new drama Gang Related.
Surviving Jack will premiere Thursday, March 27 at 8:30pm, after that evening's American Idol results show. The series stars former NYPD detective/vampire king Christopher Meloni as "a man becoming a dad as his son becomes a man" (good luck with those Stabler rage-outs, kiddo!) and is based on the book I Suck at Girls from $#*! My Dad Says Twitterer Justin Halpern. Scrubs' Bill Lawrence is executive-producing.
Gang Related will also get a boost from the Idol singing machine, premiering Tuesday, May 20 at 9pm after the first half of Idol's two-night season finale. The action drama centers on the LAPD's elite Gang Task Force and stars Lost's Terry O'Quinn, the RZA, and Ramon Rodriguez as they purse the city's most dangerous thugs.
