By Liz Raftery

24-TV Show Jack BauerIt’s official: Jack’s back! Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly announced on a conference call Monday that the network is bringing back action series 24, with Kiefer Sutherland reprising his role as CTU agent Jack Bauer.

24: Live Another Day, which will likely premiere in May 2014 and run through the summer, according to Reilly, is being promoted as an event series and will consist of 12 episodes rather than the traditional 24.

“It will go in chronological order of the day, but it’ll skip hours,” Reilly told reporters.

When asked whether the new version could eventually morph into a full-fledged series, Reilly demurred. “It could be an annual event,” he said. “There could be sequels. I don’t know that they would be yearly.”

Since 24 went off the air in May 2010, showrunner Howard Gordon (Homeland) has been mulling a movie based on the series, which never got off the ground. “As they got into the feature film, I think they all agreed 24 being compressed into two hours is not 24,” Reilly said.
