One more notable name joining Fox’s reboot of 24: Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, Dexter) has joined the event series as Kate Morgan, a “brilliant but impulsive CIA field operative in London.”
Strahovski comes aboard 24: Live Another Day, Fox’s 12-episode revival of its veteran action drama. In addition to Kiefer Sutherland reprising his starring role as Jack “Dammit!” Bauer, former cast members such as Kim Raver as Jack’s former lover interest Audrey, William Devane as her father, and Mary Lynn Rajskub as systems analyst Chloe are back on board too. New to this round: Michael Wincott as an infamous hacker and Judy Davis as the widow of a terrorist.
What’s the 24 premiere date, you ask? Hold that thought! Fox’s press day at the Television Critics Association press tour is today, so expect more Fox announcements, an executive panel (with doubtless a Brooklyn Nine-Nine post-Globes victory lap) and more soon…
UPDATE: Premiere dates! 24: Live Another Day to debut Monday, May 5 with a two-hour launch starting at 8 p.m. So 24 is going back into Mondays, as you probably expected. The action-drama series will roll into summer as Fox continues to emphasize year-around programming. Fox also announced that new family comedy Surviving Jack will premiere March 27 and freshman action-drama Gang Related will open May 20. Also, documentary series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey will premiere Sunday, March 9.
