After undergoing a minor surgery for his kidney, the 43-year-old actor is ready to return to the set of the TV series.
Kiefer Sutherland will resume filming on hit TV show "24" on Monday, March 1 after undergoing minor surgery. Shooting on the ninth series of the action drama ground to a halt in early February to allow the 43-year-old actor time out to treat a ruptured cyst near his kidney.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Sutherland went under the knife last Tuesday, February 16 but he has been cleared by doctors to return to work next week.
Back in early February, 20th Century Fox Television said, "We are temporarily suspending production of '24' while our friend and colleague Kiefer Sutherland undergoes a medical procedure. We hope to resume production shortly and do not anticipate any disruption in the broadcast of this season's episodes."
