    I hope this is true. I was disappointed to hear the movie was canceled but if the show is returning - albeit as a limited series - I'd be so happy! Bring back Chloe and it'll be perfect!

    FOX has ordered 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY, a thrilling new tent-pole event series set to restart the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise starring Kiefer Sutherland. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and Howard Gordon's Teakwood Lane Productions, 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will make its historic debut in the summer of 2014 on FOX. The announcement was made this morning by Kevin Reilly, Chairman, Fox Broadcasting Company; Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen, Twentieth Century Fox Television; and Brian Grazer, Chairman, Imagine Entertainment. The high-octane saga will reunite showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 12 episodes representing 24 hours. The suspenseful event series once again follows the exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER (Sutherland), who will resume his story several years following the events of the final season. "It's great to have Jack back. '24' redefined the drama genre, and as we reimagine the television miniseries, this iconic show will again break new ground for the network," said Reilly. "The series remains a global sensation, and everyone at FOX is thrilled to be back at work with Kiefer, Howard and the incredibly creative '24' team." "When Howard came to us saying he had an idea for a new chapter of '24,' he quite simply had us at 'hello,'" remarked 20th Century Fox Television Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden. "'24' is a signature series for this studio, beloved by critics and audiences worldwide. Howard's idea to revive the franchise as an event series couldn't be timelier, and with the brilliant Kiefer Sutherland on board to reprise his iconic role, we can't wait to get started." Added Imagine Television Chairman Brian Grazer, "I'm both excited and proud that Howard, Kiefer, and I, along with ours partners at 20th and Fox, have this new opportunity to give '24' fans what they've been asking for ??" more Jack Bauer. It's been my experience that people love Jack Bauer because he's a guy who cuts through the red tape and gets the hardest things done. I am certain 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY will again have a huge impact on our culture." "The response to '24' is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before," noted Sutherland. "To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint. Great thanks to 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and the FOX network for this opportunity. Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon." "Jack Bauer has always been an exciting, thrilling character, and I confess that I've missed him. I think the audience has too," said executive producer Howard Gordon who served as showrunner for most of the series' run and won multiple Emmy Awards for his work. "The character has evolved through the years, and this new and exciting event series format is perfect to tell the next chapter of his story and continue to reflect how the world is changing. Fans can rest assured that the Jack they know and love will be back." Originally premiering November 6, 2001, '24' was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over eight seasons, Kiefer 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.

    When this news broke out on monday that fox has confirmed that 24 is returning for a new series I was so happy and now I just can't hold the excitment, can anyone else?


    I wish next year would hurry up so I can see the new seasons trailer, it's going to be brilliant. its like 24 has never ended lol. I really hope Chloe and Tony is coming back for this new 24.


    Also I have read many news on this on other sites and some states this might not be a 1 of series as it could return again maybe in 18 - 20 months after when this airs.


    I do hope this airs on sky1 in the uk as I am from the uk and if this gets aired on Sky Atlantic I would not be happy as I don't have sky digital but I do have sky1on my youview box with talktalk.


    I wonder what the storylines will be this time round for Jack Bauer, can't wait roll on next year!


    would anyone be happy to see Audrey return to the show? I would be as she and jack belong together

    Do you really think they would be able to bring her back from her catatonic state? Seems implausible. She's gotta be gone for good.

    I'm not happy about this news. 24 has worn out it's run on televsion. This is a step backward. The conventions of television strained the show in season 6 and the beginning of season 8. It's time to break free of the restrictions and make a film series. That's the answer. This film series should remove all real time aspects and simply be driven by the story about Jack going from one place to another on the run. It shouldn't spend to much time on characters working at CTU; it's a distraction from the real action out in the field. Sure you'll need an agency (run by a character or two) to work with at some point but you can't get carried away with it and turn it into a boring workplace workplace drama (which is exactly what the show can't help but do- focus on Jack in the field! that's what great about the show).

    This is very exciting news. But just 12 episodes is a disappointing news. I hope they make many more seasons.
