About '24' Season 7:
Making its time period premiere Monday, Jan. 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), 24 will unfold without interruption through the season finale in May. Set in Washington, D.C., "Day Seven" opens with CTU dismantled and Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland
) on trial. Bauer’s day takes an unexpected turn when former colleague Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard
) returns after being presumed dead. Meanwhile, President Allison Taylor (Cherry Jones
) leads the country alongside White House Chief of Staff Ethan Kanin (Bob Gunton
) and First Gentleman Henry Taylor (Colm Feore
). An unthinkable national security crisis prompts an investigation by a team of FBI agents including Agent Janis Gold (Janeane Garofalo
), Agent Renee Walker (Annie Wersching
), Agent Larry Moss (Jeffrey Nordling
), Agent Sean Hillinger (Rhys Coiro
) and security specialist Michael Latham (John Billingsley
). Although CTU no longer exists, Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub
) and Bill Buchanan (James Morrison) are back for another momentous day of shocking events.
Setting the stage for these events is 24: Redemption
, the two-hour television event shot on location in South Africa and Los Angeles that bridges the gap between Seasons Six and Seven. Airing Sunday, Nov. 23 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), 24: Redemption finds Bauer working at a school in Africa where he is called upon to stop a ruthless warlord from drafting innocent children into his murderous militia. At home, it’s inauguration day for the President-elect, but a malevolent mastermind Jonas Hodges (Jon Voight
) works behind the scenes to fan the flames of the growing international crisis.
