’24: Live Another Day’ will begin in UK on Sky1 in May

Sky has annouced that the new season of 24 will air in the UK on Sky1 later this year.

24: Live Another Day begins filming in London next month and sees Kiefer Sutherland return as Jack Bauer after a four year absence for a limited run of twelve episodes.

Sutherland teased: “24 has always had such a global sensibility. But to be able to tell this intense 24-style story with the beauty of Europe’s history and architecture as the backdrop is going to be fascinating. Hopefully, by the time you’re finished watching an episode, you’ll feel like you’ve been there…on the edge of your seat.”

Other returning cast members include Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe, William Devane as James Heller and Kim Raver as Audrey Raines.
