The ticking clock was reset for 24: Live Another Day, the groundbreaking and thrilling event series that follows heroic agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), now a fugitive from justice. Willing to risk his life and freedom to avert yet another global disaster, Jack needs the help of his old CTU confidante Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub) and CIA agent Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski), if he’s going to save the world again. The show also stars William Devane, Kim Raver, Tate Donovan, Benjamin Bratt, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Michael Wincott, Stephen Fry and Michelle Fairley.
During this recent interview to discuss the event series, executive producers Howard Gordon and Robert Cochran (who is the show’s co-creator with Joel Surnow) talked about reaching the impressive 200 episodes milestone, what they’re most proud of with regard to the legacy of 24, that there will be some upcoming time jumps in the story, why they decided to explore the Alzheimer’s storyline for President Heller (Devane), how Audrey (Raver) will be in the mix in the remaining episodes, what Michelle Fairley has brought to the show, how they feel like they’re collapsing across the finish line now, what Jack Bauer’s fate might ultimately be, whether more seasons could happen, and the possibility of carrying on in this format, but with another lead character. Check out what they had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
