Did anyone else catch the ad for Season 5 of 24 this evening, during Prison Break on FOX? Also a week or two ago, I saw a teaser on one of the infotainment programs about the upcoming season of 24. In the various clips you see Chloe O'Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), President Palmer (Dennis Haysbert) and IIRC, Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) . Season 5 takes places about a year and half after Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) fakes his death at end of Season 4. "Sources" say President Palmer, Mike Novick (Jude Ciccolella) and Michelle Dessler (Reiko Aylesworth) will be back for at least the first epsiode. They also say that actor Louis Lombardi will reprise his role as CTU agent Edgar Stiles. New cast for Season 5 include Sean Astin (LOTR), Jean Smart , U.K. actor Julian Sands, Peter Weller (Robocop) and JoBeth Williams. 24's "Day 5" will start with a four-hour, two-night season premiere on Sunday, Jan. 8 and Monday, Jan. 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX (and most likely Global in Canada). FOX again will run 24 episodes in 24 weeks, no breaks.
