Kiefer Sutherland Returns To '24'
Good news for Jack Bauer fans everywhere: Kiefer Sutherland is ready to return to the small screen and continue shooting 24. Sutherland will return to the set on March 1, two weeks after undergoing elective surgery to remove a cyst that ruptured near his kidney. The show’s filming schedule will not be disrupted at all by the actor’s brief hiatus.
The series is currently in its eighth season. It’s ratings peaked in 2006 but have stayed fairly high since its debut in October 2001. Fox recently announced plans to produce a movie based on the series to be filmed in Europe. Work on the film is expected to begin once the series ends. –EMILIE LITTLEHALES
