Damn it, Chloe!

The 24 miniseries just got a whole lot more exciting as fan-favorite Mary Lynn Rajskub is set to reunite with Kiefer Sutherland for the acclaimed series' highly anticipated return in spring 2014, Fox announced at their presentation during the 2013 Summer TCA Press Tour on Thursday.

Rajskub, who first joined the Fox drama in its third season, will reprise her role as Chloe O'Brian, Jack Bauer's (Sutherland) trusty sidekick who was a tech master. 24: Live Another Day will take place several years after the events of the final season, with Jack once again taking viewers on "a pulse-pounding ride."

"I am thrilled to be working with Howard and the writers again—and, of course, Kiefer!" Rajskub said in a statement. "There's a lot more room to grow in my character...I'm going to start sharpening my computer skills now!"

24 went off the air in 2010 after a successful eight-season run. Showrunner Howard Gordon, who is now an executive producer on Showtime's hit Homeland, came up with the idea for the series' return, which is set to play like a 12-episode final season.

"It will go chronologically over the day, but it will skip hours. It will be dictated by the plot," Fox boss Kevin Reilly recently said. "The spine of the original 24 episodes was about 12 hours. Those were when the big events occurred, and then there were little events and connective tissue in between."

 24: Live Another Day premieres spring 2014.
