After a stint as a serial killer on Showtime’s Dexter, Yvonne Strahovski is returning to the spy life. The Chuck alumna has signed on for Fox’s event series 24: Live Another Day, becoming one of several newcomers to the franchise.

Judy Davis is a superb actress, and for quite a few years we didn’t see her in new roles very often. She’s been more busy of late, and now she’s got what could be her highest-profile gig in a while, and one which could lead to a lot more work. Davis will play Margo, variously described as an “arms dealer” and “a British national and the widow of a notorious terrorist,” in the 24 sequel mini-series Live Another Day.
The show is set to air in the spring on Fox, with Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Raver, William Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub all reprising their original roles. The new limited series will, like original seasons of 24, play out in real time.
The show takes place four years after the end of the original series. producer Evan Katz recently explained “We wanted the show’s return to be an event, and part of that was putting Jack in a very different context. Four years ago, we left Jack a fugitive from justice and we’re going to pick him up four years later in London.” [Variety]
One of the main challenges producers faced in bringing back the hit show 24 and its hero Jack Bauer was making the return an event worthy of the original show. Since Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, has saved the country and world numerous times, 24: Live Another Day has to do something special.
Turns out the first part of that escalation will be a wholly new setting. When the show comes back in May 2014 for a 12-episode run, Jack Bauer will be in London and four years will have passed since his last adventure with Counter Terrorism Unit. Read More »

Mary Lynn Rajskub‘s Chloe O’Brian wasn’t even introduced until the third season of 24, but she quickly established herself as a fan favorite and an integral part of the thriller series. The numbers bear that out, too. She appeared in 125 episodes of the show, more than any character not named Jack Bauer.
Put simply, it just isn’t 24 without Chloe — which is why fans should be thrilled to learn that she is, in fact, coming back for the limited sequel series 24: Live Another Day. More on Rajskub’s casting after the jump.

Jack Bauer will officially live another day. The counter-terrorism superhero who worked his way through eight seasons of 24-hour madness before the series ended in 2010 will return in May 2014. The new show is a 12-hour limited event called 24: Live Another Day. Kiefer Sutherland has officially signed on to return to the role, which will follow the same 24-hour format of the original series, but condensed to 12 hours, with uneventful hours skipped.
