New 24: Live Another Day Trailer Arrives
'Bauer is unpredictable!'

26 March 2014  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Jack Bauer. JACK BAUER. Two words that contain so much pain, growling and irresponsible SUV driving. The man – no, the legend – is heading to these shores in a few short months for a new 24 miniseries and he’s going to be breaking things. Secure your valuables, find alternative routes to work and avoid obvious landmarks. For Pete’s sake, stay the hell away from red phone boxes, Beefeaters and Big Ben. Watch this trailer for more handy tips.

Set four years after season eight, 24: Live Another Day finds Kiefer Sutherland’s runaway agent in London. Everyone thinks he’s a traitor (again) but when he gets wind of an assassination plot on the US President Heller’s (the great Bill Devane) life, Bauer is having none of that and is soon looking to kick the “ass” out of the assassins.

We’re not sure exactly what Jack’s been up to during those four fallow years (Military diorama building? Cobbling? Finger paints?) but Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub) seems to have spent the intervening period on an emo retreat. Expect more than the usual angsty computer literacy from CTU’s resident IT genius as she gives Jack the backup he needs to get the job done.

In case anyone’s forgotten what people drive in London – Mini Coopers with the Union Jack painted on the side, obviously – here’s a new poster, via Collider, as a refresher.

Fox’s 12-parter kicks off on May 5 in the US. UK airing dates to follow.

I hope so too.. Seasons 4 and 5 were my favourite as they really turned up the bat-shit-crazy up to eleven.. I'll watch it whatever, I don't even mind a little repetition just so long as it isn't anything like the croque of sh*te that season 7 turned out to be More

Love 24 especially season 2 and 5.Which were amazing. All the plot that is revealed in this trailer has been done before over the last 8 seasons which eventually weakened the series due to the repetition . One of the reasons the series came to an end was the writers felt there was nothing left to tell. Hopefully , as a fan I really hope there is. Not sure i see it here. More
