Kiefer Sutherland – AKA Jack Bauer - and “24” return to Fox with two, two-hour episodes airing on Sunday, January 17 and Monday, January 18. The Sunday episode begins at 9 PM ET and runs until 11 PM, and the Monday episode begins at 8 PM ET and runs to 10 PM.

Fox describes the premiere episode as follows:

“Season Eight of 24, set in New York, premieres on Sunday, January 17 at 9/8c, when Jack Bauer is unwillingly drawn back into terrifying action just as President Allison Taylor negotiates international security with Omar Hassan, a determined Middle Eastern leader visiting the U.S. on a peacemaking mission. As the astonishing day unfolds and the threat escalates, an upgraded CTU operates under the command of razor-sharp honcho Brian Hastings, who supervises quirky Chole O'Brien, expert data analyst Dana Walsh, systems analyst Arlo Glass and field operative Cole Ortiz.”

New to the cast is Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff (as Dana Walsh) Mykelti Williamson (as Brian Hastings), Freddie Prinze Jr. (as Cole Ortiz) Of course, fan favorite Mary Lynn Rajskub returns as Chloe O’Brien, along with Cherry Jones as President Allison Taylor, and Annie Wersching as Renee Walker
