Fox Announces '24's Return With 'Live Another Day'

Just days after the cancellation of Kiefer Sutherland's 'Touch', Fox has confirmed it is bringing back the actor to reprise his role as Agent Jack Bauer on '24'.

Fox has ordered '24: Live Another Day', which it describes as a "thrilling new tent-pole event series set to restart the clock on the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise," for the summer of 2014.

The order will reunite showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retain the real-time format with split screens and interweaving storylines.

"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," Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Fox said Monday morning. "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,'" added Twentieth Century Fox's 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."

"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. "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."

"The response to '24' is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before," added 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."
