Kiefer Sutherland and 24 are coming back to TV.

“The response to ‘24’ is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before," Sutherland said in a statement. "To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint ... Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon.”

Fox has reportedly ordered 12 episodes of 24 and the series will premiere in May of 2014.

“Jack Bauer has always been an exciting, thrilling character, and I confess that I’ve missed him," Gordon said. "I think the audience has too. The character has evolved through the years, and this new and exciting event series format is perfect to tell the next chapter of his story and continue to reflect how the world is changing. Fans can rest assured that the Jack they know and love will be back.”
