24: Live Another Day picks up four years after the events of the 2010 finale, with Jack Bauer still in hiding as a fugitive in London. "He is hunted and he is still hunted when the show begins," executive producer Manny Coto teased.

Still, Jack is willing to risk his life and freedom when he learns of a plot that threatens both the president and the prime minister. The 12-episode series is currently filming on location in London.

 

24: Live Another Day premieres Monday, May 5 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
