Sea­son 1 e.tv (*194) 20:30 & 21:30 Ac­tion

Ac­tion se­ries 24’s (2001-2010) coun­tert­er­ror­ism agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Suther­land) re­turned in 2014 for a lim­it­ed­series 12 episode show called 24: Live Another Day. Jack and his “new” show have now made their way to free-TV screens and it picks up four years af­ter the orig­i­nal sea­son’s fi­nale, where Jack went on the run af­ter killing Rus­sian For­eign Min­is­ter Mikhail No­vakovich (Graham McTav­ish) who tried to ruin the US-Rus­sian peace agree­ment. Jack is now a sus­pected ter­ror­ist and he’s be­ing tracked by the CIA in Lon­don. Here’s what you need to know…

Ac­cord­ing to Kiefer, Jack is tougher 1

and an­grier than ever. “He’s had to hide in Eastern Europe and has been es­tranged from his daugh­ter Kim (Elisha Cuth­bert) and grand­child for four years. He hasn’t been able to re­turn home to the coun­try that he served.”

Jack’s new mis­sion is to stop a ter2

ror­ist plot to try kill US Pres­i­dent Heller (Wil­liam Devane) who’s in Lon­don ne­go­ti­at­ing a treaty.

Jack’s only ally is in­tel­li­gence ana3

lyst Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Ra­jskub), whom view­ers met in sea­son 3 of 24 in 2003. Chloe is now a brunette and only wears black clothes and make-up. “She’s been through some hard times that changed her life­style,” says Mary. She now works with a hacker to ex­pose the gov­ern­ment’s dirty se­crets.

Margot Al-Harazi (Michelle Fair­ley, 4

Cate­lyn Stark un­til 2013 on fantasy show Game Of Thrones, 2011-cur­rent) is a for­mer Al-Qaeda op­er­a­tive who gains con­trol of six US mil­i­tary drones and she uses them to at­tack Lon­don. Plus, tak­ing a cen­tral role is Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Alas­tair Davies, played by Stephen Fry (host un­til this year of quiz show QI, 2003-cur­rent.)

Jack Bauer’s back and he’s got help from Chloe.
