Jack Bauer is Back in New ’24: Live Another Day’ Teaser (VIDEO)

What’s a four-year hiatus when you’re Jack Bauer?

Fox has released a minute-long teaser for the reboot of its mega-hit skein, “24,” and in it, counter-terrorism agent Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) is back for more. The clip shows Bauer trying to foil an assassination attempt against the U.S. president all while trying to evade his own capture.

The limited series event, “24:Live Another Day,” will follow a 12-hour timeline instead of the show’s original daylong format. But it seems having only a half day makes no difference. Bauer will be doing everything in his power to complete his mission, which looks like involves drones and a “full-scale attack.”

Benjamin Bratt and Tate Donovan are all set to star alongside Sutherland. The role of Margot (Judy Davis) has been recast and will be played by Michelle Fairley (“Game of Thrones”).

Jack Bauer returns to the small screen May 5.

    Wow! What else can I say. Only to add, said it before and will again, May 5th Cinco de Mayo and premier of #24LAD. Win Win!

    I still don’t understand why Fox has yet to include 24’s most iconic fixture in any of these promos – the sound of the ticking clock.
