I always loved 24, and I’m happy to hear it’ll be back, even in a limited format.

>>Jack Bauer is back!

I’ve learned that, after marathon negotiations, Kiefer Sutherland has closed a deal for a new installment of 24 on Fox.

And it was Chloe to whom Jack directed his final farewell via drone satellite. “When you first came to CTU,” he said, bloodied but unbowed as ever. “I never thought it was going to be you that was going to cover my back all those years…. Thank you.”
