After a year of delay, "24" will be back packed with action and explosions in the new season which will air in January next year. A trailer from the seventh volume has been released, showing what Jack Bauer has to face this time in the 24 hours of his life as U.S. government's agent.
As seen in the trailer, the new episode will see how Bauer finds out that his former CTU partner Tony Almeida is brought back from the dead but is resurrected for the other side. Almeida becomes someone who wants to help a terrorist organization taking control of the U.S. power. Bauer, standing in a trial also has to answer some questions related to human rights violations. Meanwhile, Chloe tones it down, declaring that she wants to be a stay home mom.
The trailer also gives glimpses of Jonas, the new character played by Jon Voight who as the head of private military company involved in the conflict, becomes the villain in this season.
The seventh volume of "24" was supposed to be premiered in January this year but the writers strike has prevented the show from being carried on. The plot line then was being redrawn and filming was shut down after a few episodes. FOX will now broadcast it in January but, prior to that, they will present a TV movie called "24: Redemption" which will serve as the bridge between the sixth and seventh season. The two-hour prequel is scheduled to air November 23.
