Jack is back!
Five new promos for “24: Live Another Day” aired Sunday night during the Super Bowl, stoking anticipation for the return of super agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and his trusty tech sidekick, Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub).
The limited-event series, which premieres May 5 on Fox, finds Jack still hiding from the U.S. government in London four years after the events of Season 8, the finale of which aired on May 24, 2010. But, ever the patriot, he risks his freedom to warn visiting President Heller (William Devane) about an impending terrorist attack on the city.

The first four teasers were brief, 15-second glimpses at London in crisis: people screaming, smoke billowing, fires igniting.
In the final, longer promo, Jack is aided once again by Chloe, who is sporting a very different look. She seems to have gone all "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" — punk hairstyle, dark eyeliner, and a menacing scowl on her face. In a Season 8 DVD scene, Chloe was arrested for helping Jack, and four years later, she’s justifiably anti-government and working with underground hackers. So, yeah, that Lisbeth Salander look makes sense.
As for Jack, his desire to prevent another major attack brings him once again into the orbit of Audrey Heller (Kim Raver), the president’s daughter, who is now married to chief of staff Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan). And he may find some butt-kicking competition in tough CIA agent Kate Morgan ("Chuck" star Yvonne Strahovski).
