This is really sad to hear.

Jack is back, baby!
Recently at the 2014 Winter TCA Press Tour, it was announced that the upcoming 12-episode miniseries 24: Live Another Day would be premiering on FOX on May 5th!
Not only that, Kiefer Sutherland also gave all CTU fans a reason to celebrate by saying that there was still a chance for a film version of 24 as well as a reboot of the series:
"The script for the film was very, very different. The film's an ongoing situation. There's always an opportunity to do that, but Howard came up with an idea of a 12-episode run of this and it was an opportunity that presented itself to us first. It was a fantastic idea…if this ends up rebooting the show or causing a film to be made, so be it."
Yes! Although since the movie should happen in real time, wouldn't it be called 2 & A Half?
But that's not all! Executive producer Manny Coto gave some sweet deets about Jack's fugitive status for the miniseries:
"If you remember at the end of season eight, Jack was left fugitive and we'll pick up four years later and he's still a fugitive. He is hunted and he is still hunted when the show begins."
Think you've had enough updates to last you 24 hours before you start jonesing for some more? Think again!
It was also announced that Dexter's Yvonne Strahovski will be joining the show as a "brilliant but impulsive CIA field operative in London!"
Whoa, she totally sounds like Homeland's Carrie Mathison minus all the crying!
Also returning to the show is our favorite techie, Chloe, who is played by Mary Lynn Rajskub!
