Tony Almeida is back … again!

Fox’s 24 reboot 24: Legacy is once again reviving a fan-favorite character, EW has confirmed.

As first reported by TVLine, Tony Almeida, the former CTU operative played by Carlos Bernard, will appear in 24: Legacy, which is premiering after Fox’s coverage of the Super Bowl 51 on Sunday, Feb. 5.

Jack Bauer’s frenemy was killed off in season 5 of the original series and resurrected in season 7 (only this time, he was eeeeevillll). Almeida was last seen plotting to escape prison in a bonus featurette for season 9, dubbed 24: Live Another Day.

24: Legacy stars Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton), Miranda Otto (Homeland), Jimmy Smits (Sons of Anarchy), and Teddy Sears (The Flash).
