If it’s December (or thereabouts), it must be one more month before Jack Bauer invades TV screens again. Yup, that’s right, ladies and gents, Bauer and company (and a newly resurrected CTU) returns to save the day January 2010. Check out three new promo spots for the upcoming Season 8. I gotta admit, after Season 7, I was a little down on the show, but it sure looks like transplanting the action from L.A. to New York has given the show a whole new vitality it hasn’t had in a while.
Returning players include Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe O’Brian, Annie Wersching as Renee Walker, and Cherry Jones as President Allison Taylor. Also back, Gregory Itzin as the scheming former Prez Charles Logan. They’re joined by Mykelti Williamson as the head of CTU New York, Katee Sackhoff as CTU agent Dana Walsh, and Freddie Prinze Jr. as Walsh’s fiance Cole Ortiz, who is also the head of field operations at CTU New York. Yes, that Freddie Prinze Jr. guy. Sigh. But look, Jack’s back!
