Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly has just announced during his TCA talk that the new season of 24 will take place outside of the US. “This is gonna be set in an international setting. They’ve got a great idea,” said Reilly.
"It's still vibrant and alive," says Reilly of new #24, which will have a foreign-locale format for its 12-ep return. #tcas13

An international setting explains the news from earlier this week about CTU’s return being “unlikely” and reaffirms the writers claims of doing something fresh. Exciting news! We also learned during the TCA talk that 24: Live Another Day will premiere in May alongside new FOX drama Gang Related. Chloe O’Brian was confirmed as the second cast member earlier today.
