24 returning

They cancelled the Touch and decided to bring THIS back?!

Keifer Sutherland will be reprising his role as Jack Bauer in a 13 part EVENT that is a back door thing to maybe bring the series back as a whole. Called 24: Live Another Day, this will premier in May 2014. Meh!

Meh!
Considering how lame Touch is, this is substantially more exciting. I enjoy Sutherland doing stuff, but Touch is just incredibly boring.

Now he can bet back to yelling at people about his need for knowing where bombs are.

I like Touch, it was very wholesome and life-affirming, a real throwback kind of show..very few are like that these days.

Fan of 24 in it's prime, but it ended for a damn reason. It got incredibly outlandish and out-of-touch. America are on a "War on Terror" high again after the Boston manhunt so it's little wonder FOX are exploiting those feelings with a return of a show that was at it's peak during that era.

I'm really disappointed they cancelled Touch, I've been enjoying it. Anybody notice Martin getting more 'Jack' as the series progresses though? Lol.
I always liked 24 so I'll watch it when it starts up again, I just hope they let poor Jack have a bathroom break this series.... Also hope it's not going to be like 24 'Redemption', that was a low point of the series for me.

Just about everything from that era was a low point.

When you're taking down the President of the United States and your own family members, it's time to call it a bloody day.

It all went wrong when CTU was blown up, dammit I missed the ringtone!
So who is left alive series wise other than Jack? Chloe? I can't think who else will be a familiar face.

I never really got into 24 myself, but I know my grandparents used to watch it, so maybe they'll watch it again.

I'm so excited for this! Made my night during the Superbowl when I saw the commercial for 24. Glad that it'll have both Jack Bauer and Chloe, I think his daughter Kim will be returning as well.

I've been re-watching all of the seasons to refresh my memory (big task, I know). Currently on season 4. So far, seasons 1-3 were as great as I remember them, hoping the rest won't be disappointing the second time.

After dismal ratings, Legacy has been axed, but FOX have plans to move ahead with yet another incarnation of the franchise...apparently they want something a little more along the lines of an anthology series with the real time aspect being maintained.
