Jack’s back – and on board to save the world at least two more times.

Fox has ordered two more seasons of “24,” keeping the Emmy-winning drama on the net through the 2008-2009 TV season.

Announcement comes on the eve of Fox’s Thursday upfront presentation. Show remains a powerful player for Fox, despite ratings dips and critical knocks this season.

Exec producers for “24” have already told several publications that they plan to make some changes on the show next season – but the twist will remain the same: Each episode covering one hour of real time as special agent Jack Bauer races against the clock to stop something bad from happening.

20th Century Fox TV and Imagine TV are behind “24,” which winds down its sixth season Monday with a two-hour finale.

“24” is coming off an Emmy win for outstanding drama series, as well as outstanding lead actor in a drama (for star Kiefer Sutherland). Show has scored 51 Emmy noms throughout its existence, including five for best drama.

Joel Surnow, Robert Cochran, Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Jon Cassar, Brian Grazer and Sutherland exec produce “24.”
