Yvonne Strahovski Set For 24: Live Another Day
She'll be a CIA operative in London

Yvonne-Strahovski-Set-For-24-Live-Another-Day

The chance to watch Kiefer Sutherland run around London duffing up terrorists while shouting “Damnit!” has attracted yet another name. Chuck/Dexter veteran Yvonne Strahovski is joining the cast of the new miniseries spin-off 24: Live Another Day.

As you may know by now, the US Fox network is bringing Jack back for a “limited series” new season of 12 episodes that will find the perpetually time-crunched CTU agent shifted to London for a new mission. Strahovski is aboard as Kate Morgan, a brilliant but impulsive CIA operative stationed in the city. It should be no great stretch for Strahovski after her long-term CIA work in Chuck, which surely pretty much qualifies her as a real agent by this point.

She joins a cast that already includes 24 alumni Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane, plus newcomers to the show Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott and Judy Davis. The behind-the-scenes crew is also largely returning, with producers Howard Gordon and co-creator Robert Cochran and writer-producers David Fury, Evan Katz, Manny Coto alongside director Jon Cassar.

The series now has a launch date, in the States at least, with Fox announcing that it’ll start airing from May 5, kicking off with a two-hour brace of episodes. With Fox due to present shortly at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, we can expect more news soon, though we may have to wait and see when and where the series is picked up here.

Strahovski, meanwhile, will be back on the big screen soon in I, Frankenstein, which is out on January 29.
