FOX has announced their May sweeps lineup, including details about the first
four five episodes of 24: Live Another Day. While the synopsis for the premiere is a bit vague, the next ones get a bit more specific, so consider this is your spoiler warning – read on at your own risk.
24: Live Another Day Episodes 1 & 2 (“Day 9 – 11:00 AM-12:00 PM/12:00 PM-1:00 PM”)
Airs Monday, May 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)
Set and shot in London, the suspenseful event series once again will follow the exploits of heroic Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), as he attempts to thwart an unthinkable terrorist attack that could change the world forever. Retaining the real-time, nail-biting, fast-paced format with split screens and interweaving storylines, the highly-anticipated series also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane reprising their original roles. Newcomers to the series include Yvonne Strahovski, Benjamin Bratt, Tate Donovan, Giles Matthey, Gbenga Akinnagbe and Michael Wincott.
24: Live Another Day Episode 3 (“Day 9 – 1:00 PM-2:00 PM”)
Airs Monday, May 12 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – Time Period Premiere
Kate Morgan (Yvonne Strahovski) continues her hunt for Jack, as President Heller (William Devane) prepares to address Parliament after a devastating attack. Margot Al-Harazi (guest star Michelle Fairley) proves she is willing to sacrifice anything for revenge.
24: Live Another Day Episode 4 (“Day 9 – 2:00 PM-3:00 PM”)
Airs Monday, May 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)
The terror threat escalates as Jack heads for the U.S. Embassy with the CIA closing in on him. Meanwhile, Margot asserts her authority with unthinkable force; President Heller makes an impassioned speech to Parliament; and Kate takes matters into her own hands.
24: Live Another Day Episode 5 (“Day 9 – 3:00 PM-4:00 PM”)
Airs Monday, May 26 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT)
An unlikely duo joins forces to forestall an impending attack. The terrorist reveals her demands. The President orders a military lockdown, but it may be too late.
Sounds pretty action-packed and Margot seems like a force to be reckoned with. Keen observers may notice that the season now starts at 11:00AM rather than 12:00PM – it’s been bumped up an hour. Each of these episodes will also encore (repeat) on Fridays at 8:00 PM.
