The television show “24” returned May 5, 2014 for a twelve episode arc. Tor / Forge Books, in conjunction with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, will release 24: Deadline on August 5, 2014.
It will answer the question of what happened to Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) agent Jack Bauer between the thrilling final moments of the last season and his heroic return this Spring.
Receiving 73 Emmy Award nominations over eight seasons, “24” redefined the format of TV dramas on a global scale.
Kiefer Sutherland starred as heroic CTU agent Jack Bauer, racing against the clock in real time to thwart multiple terrorist plots over eight seasons.
