Fugitive. Soldier. Hero. Yes Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer is back as 24 returns with a 12 episode ‘event series’ from Monday May 5.

We’ve got a new promo trailer, via FOX, to share with you below, along with a gallery of images from the show’s opening episode. Check out the new terrorist threat, Jack’s no nonsense approach, and Chloe’s (Mary Lynn Rajskub) channeling of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo(?)

The new series, set in London, picks up Jack’s story four years after the events of the final season and sees Jack attempting to thwart a major terrorist attack in London that could change the world forever.

Co-showrunner and executive producer Evan Katz recently said, “We wanted the show’s return to be an event, and part of that was putting Jack in a very different context. Four years ago, we left Jack a fugitive from justice and we’re going to pick him up four years later in London.”

24 has always had such a global sensibility,” Sutherland added. “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.”

24: Live Another Day debuts in the US with a two hour premiere Monday May 5 at 8:00-10:00 PT ET/PT before settling in to its regular time slot of 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT from Monday May 12.

The series will premiere on SKY 1 in the UK shortly thereafter.
