24 will be returning to Sky 1 HD with new season 24: Live Another Day.
News about the new season of the show has been flooding through in the past few days with the US premiere date confirmed for 5th May. As of yet Sky hasn’t confirmed the date for UK transmission.
Sarah Wright, Controller, Acquisitions, Sky said “We’re thrilled to be bringing 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY to Sky 1 HD. We remain passionate about bringing the best of the US to Sky customers and the return of the iconic 24 is a hugely exciting TV event.”
Adam MacDonald, Director, Sky 1 HD said “I’m delighted that Jack and the team at 24 are returning exclusively to Sky 1 HD. The scale, ambition and fast-paced energy of the series epitomize everything we look for in a drama for the channel. I can’t wait to bring it back to our customers.”
Kiefer Sutherland said, “24 has always had such a global sensibility. But to be able to tell this intense 24-style story with the beauty of Europe’s history and architecture as the backdrop is going to be fascinating. Hopefully, by the time you’re finished watching an episode, you’ll feel like you’ve been there…on the edge of your seat.”
Kiefer Sutherland will be joined by returning cast members Mary Lynn Rajskub, William Devane and Kim Raver for the new season.
