After a few conversations following last week’s Tele-Tuesday post, a certain friend of mine put me in the mood for 24. And while it still might be a little early for a true 24: Live Another Day preview, why not start the hype anyway?
That’s right; Jack will be back in 2014.
And not just Jack. Chloe O’Brian too. Just announced this past week, Mary Lynn Rajskub has officially joined Kiefer Sutherland for the reboot of 24, tentatively scheduled to premiere in May 2014.
24: Live Another Day will consist of twelve episodes – more like a miniseries than an entirely new season. And while fans are accustomed to the set up of each episode ticking down one hour in Jack’s hectic schedule, it is rumored we will have to adjust a tiny bit to the shorter series with a few hours skipped here and there.
Besides Jack and Chloe, 24 produced many popular characters over the years. And sadly, some of them died. Heck, most of them…
President David Palmer
Curtis Manning – probably my favorite
And even though he was hated by many, President Charles Logan.
But there are also the fan favorites that survived to see another day…
President Allison Taylor
And last but not least, Kim Bauer.
While we still have a ways to go before Jack is back in 2014, and for the most part have no idea about the storyline or the casting at this point, I can still honestly say it doesn’t matter… because I can’t wait!
Are you excited for the return of Jack and Chloe? Who was your favorite 24 character over the years? And who should 24: Live Another Day bring back? I’d love to hear from you!
