I found a great website that is hosting all the US TV teasers for the return of Jack Bauer and company. 24 returns to US television screens on January 9th. So far, the websites that have reviews of the first few episodes point out the dislocation they felt from having so many new faces onboard.TVRules.net provides a synopsis to the start of the series here.
FOX’s award-winning dramatic series “24” returns for it’s fourth season of clock-stopping suspense beginning with an explosive season premiere of two back-to-back episodes airing Sunday, January 9, 2005 (8:00-10:00 PM). The series will then move into it’s new timeslot Monday nights at 9:00 PM beginning Monday, January 10.
In season three of 24, Jack, who was in charge of a special field operations unit of the Counter Terrorist Unit, fought to stop a viral terrorism threat before it could kill millions of people.
Season four begins 18 months later with the episode “Day 4: 7:00 am – 8:00 am.” CTU is now headed by Erin Driscoll (Alberta Watson, “La Femme Nikita”), a steely government agent who made firing Jack one of her first priorities upon taking over.
After the explosion of a commuter train, Jack, who is now working for Secretary of Defense James Heller (William Devane, “Knots Landing”) and also is romantically involved with his married daughter, Audrey (Kim Raver, “Third Watch”), suddenly finds himself heading back to CTU for a meeting with Driscoll on Heller’s behalf.
Also featured will be Nestor Serrano (“The Day After Tomorrow”) as Middle Eastern businessman Navi Araz, Oscar-nominated actress Shohreh Aghdashloo (“The House of Sand and Fog”) as his wife, Dina, and Jonathan Ahdout (“The House of Sand and Fog”) as their son, Behrooz.
