Jack Bauer’s on the clock again in 24: Live Another Day, and he’s looking as conflicted as ever.
In the first episodic footage released from the new 12-part series revival, a somewhat haggard — yet always dangerous — Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is living in London in exile. Four years have passed since the events of the 24 finale, and now the American president is in danger. The U.S. government needs Bauer’s help, despite viewing him as a “traitor” and “psychopath.”
“If an American president is assassinated on foreign soil, you’re looking at a world war,” Bauer warns, while fully admitting: “There’s no going home for me.”
24: Live Another Day premieres May 5 on Fox.
