What the hell has Jack being up to all this time? It seems like ages that he was saving the world.  Well the wait is almost over.

blankTo help offset the strike-induced delay, 24 will return tomorrow night, November 23, 2008 with a two-hour prequel (titled 24: Redemption?) that will take place almost a year after season six and will “set up the story that launches season seven”.

Filmed on location in Cape Town, South Africa, and Los Angeles, 24: REDEMPTION stars Emmy Award winner Kiefer Sutherland along with new cast members Cherry Jones, Robert Carlyle, Gil Bellows and Academy Award winner Jon Voight.

After sacrificing everything for his country, Jack Bauer (Sutherland) is wanted by the U.S. government and now stands to lose the only thing he has left: his freedom. Working as a missionary in Africa, Bauer is called upon to stop a ruthless warlord from drafting innocent children into his murderous militia. First, Bauer must confront his own torturous past and face an impossible decision that will change his life forever.

Of course, don’t expect to see this show in the UK anytime soon, so best you download it off your favorite download site.
