Jack Bauer fans have something new to look forward to: the return of the hit TV series “24.”

The series will return to the airwaves in the summer of 2014 as a 12 episode event called “24: Live Another Day.”

“It’s great to have Jack back. ‘24’ redefined the drama genre, and as we reimagine the television miniseries, this iconic show will again break new ground for the network,” said Fox Broadcasting Company Chairman Kevin Reilly in a statement issued Monday morning. “The series remains a global sensation, and everyone at FOX is thrilled to be back at work with Kiefer, Howard and the incredibly creative ‘24’ team.”

The high-octane saga will reunite showrunner Howard Gordon with Sutherland and retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with 12 episodes representing 24 hours.

The suspenseful event series once again follows the exploits of heroic agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), who will resume his story several years following the events of the final season.
