Spoiler Alert: Here's what happened on the "24: Live Another Day" season finale!
After nine seasons of fighting bad guys and never getting the girl, Jack Bauer finished his "24" tenure (for now) by repeating history.
While some fans expected Jack Bauer's death at the end of "24: Live Another Day," it was another longtime character on the real-time thriller who bit the bullet instead. Audrey Boudreau, Jack's former flame and the daughter of the President of the United States, was shot and killed, mirroring the season one death of Jack's wife Teri Bauer.
Audrey's death sends Bauer into absolute overdrive, leading him to pull a Drazen against the various Chinese terrorists assisting the legendarily evil Cheng Zhi, the mastermind behind the events of "Live Another Day," the would-be architect of World War III, and the man who imprisoned and tortured Bauer for over two years. Cheng also tortured Audrey for several years as well, and as the man ultimately responsible for her death, Jack wasn't walking away without Cheng's blood on his hands.
Luckily, whatever Jack wants and needs, Jack gets. He kills his way to Cheng, proves to the United States and Chinese governments that Cheng is the man responsible for pitting the two countries against each other, and then proceeds to attain vengeance the only way he knows how — by picking up a nearby samurai sword and beheading Cheng in one deft move. Don't bother asking why there's a sword on the boat; it was cool, and cool is all that matters.
But it's not all cool for Bauer, even after he avenges his star-crossed lover's death. Minutes later, Jack learns that his longtime colleague Chloe O'Brian has been kidnapped by the Russians, who are willing to let her go if Jack surrenders in 12 hours. They've been after Jack for four years, ever since he initiated a killing spree that claimed the lives of two Russian diplomats — corrupt diplomats, but Russian all the same. It's time for Bauer to own up to his past.
And own up he does. In the final moments of the episode, we flash-forward 12 hours later in the day, with Bauer following through on the deal. He surrenders himself in exchange for Chloe's safe release. As they cross paths one last time, Jack thanks Chloe for everything, and lets her know that all these years, she really was his best friend. Nobody tell Tony Almeida; he'll be really bummed out.
The tender moment is short-lived, as Bauer boards a Russian helicopter headed straight for a Moscow prison. But at least Bauer gets one last word in.
"I've taken you at your word," he tells his new captors, "but if you're lying to me, if anything happens to Chloe or my family, your entire world will come part — and you will never see it coming."
Big talk coming from a man about to spend the rest of his life in a dark hole in Moscow. Then again, this is Jack Bauer; the only thing more dangerous than his bark is his bite.
What did you think of the "24: Live Another Day" finale? Do you think we'll see Jack Bauer again?
- "All he wants is his family. All he needs is to survive one more day."
- — Season 8 promotion
Season 8 of 24 premiered in the United States on January 17, 2010 at 8pm on Fox. The premiere was a 2-night, 4-hour event (January 17 and 18 from 9-11pm/8-10pm on FOX/Global).
On March 26, 2010, it was announced that Season 8 would be the show's final season. However, this later was rendered null with the release of the 24: Live Another Day mini-series that followed.
CTU has been reinstated by PresidentAllison Taylor in a New York City-based pilot program under the direction of Brian Hastings. Cole Ortiz, an ex-Marine who wants to follow in Jack Bauer's footsteps, runs the division’s Field Operations. Expert data analyst Dana Walsh collaborates with systems analyst Arlo Glass inside CTU. Rob Weiss serves as PresidentAllison Taylor's new chief of staff, and Meredith Reed is an ambitious journalist with ties to the unfolding situation.
As PresidentOmar Hassan of Kamistan comes to the United States on a peacemaking mission, he is targeted by a group of Russian terrorists, led by people from within Hassan's own country. CTU has to stop the impending threat, with the help of a reluctant Jack Bauer.
On the afternoon of March 26, 2010, a statement was issued from Fox explaining that Season 8 would conclude 24's run on television. Kiefer Sutherland gave a statement:
|“||This has been the role of a lifetime, and I will never be able to fully express my appreciation to everyone who made it possible. While the end of the series is bittersweet, we always wanted 24 to finish on a high note, so the decision to make the eighth season our last was one we all agreed upon. This feels like the culmination of all our efforts from the writers to the actors to our fantastic crew and everyone at Fox. Looking ahead to the future, Howard Gordon and I are excited about the opportunity to create the feature film version of 24. But when all is said and done, it is the loyal worldwide fan base that made it possible for me to have the experience of playing the role of Jack Bauer, and for that I am eternally grateful.||”|
Executive producer and showrunner Howard Gordon was also a part of the decision. He was quoted saying:
|“||"Kiefer and I have loved every minute of making 24, but we all believe that now is the right time to call it a day. I echo his sentiments of gratitude toward the show’s amazing creative team, as well as the studio and network who have always believed in us and shown us unbelievable support."|
"24 is so much more than just a TV show – it has redefined the drama genre and created one of the most admired action icons in television history," said Peter Rice, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Networks Group. Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company added, "We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series and will be forever thankful to Kiefer, the producers, the cast and crew for everything they’ve put into 24 over the years. It’s truly been an amazing and unforgettable eight days."
Plans to continue the show in feature film form were explored, with Billy Ray being contracted to write a screenplay. Plans for shooting were scheduled to commence in late 2010 or early 2011, but Ray's script was turned down by FOX and the film effort is at a standstill.
Day 8 begins 18 months after Day 7 at 4:00pmET, the latest in the day of any season. This is the second season to use Eastern Time as opposed to Pacific Time. According to the date on Pavel Tokarev's phone, the day takes place on February 27-28, contrary to Operation Hero stating it takes place in late May. Day 8 takes place about 14 years and 6 months after Day 1.
As with Season 5, Season 8 can be divided into three acts:
- Jack is unwillingly dragged back into the world of CTU when an assassination plot is underway targeting KamistaniPresidentOmar Hassan during a peace conference at the United Nations with U.S. President Allison Taylor. The main antagonists of this act are Davros and Farhad Hassan. (4:00pm–7:00pm)
- It is then discovered that Kamistani extremists are planning to acquire stolen nuclear fuel rods; after CTU fails to intercept them and the group is unable to return to Kamistan with them, the splinter group threatens to use them against the United States if their demands are not met. The main antagonists of this act are Samir Mehran, Vladimir Laitanan, Sergei Bazhaev, Tarin Faroush and Dana Walsh. (7:00pm–8:00am)
- After a hard-hitting personal loss, Jack, fueled by revenge, goes rogue to hunt down the members of the Russian government responsible for the day's events. The main antagonists among the Russian officials are Yuri Suvarov, Mikhail Novakovich, Pavel Tokarev and Dana Walsh. During this time, Jack frantically evades the enforcement apparatus of the federal government, which is trying to force Jack to stand down in order to cover-up the truth behind the Russian complicity, in a desperate attempt to save the peace treaty. The main antagonists among the cover-up conspirators of this act are Charles Logan, Jason Pillar and Allison Taylor. (8:00am–4:00pm)
- Jack Bauer's attempts to leave New York and be with his family.
- Dana Walsh's mysterious past as "Jenny Scott", and the hoops she has to jump through to satisfy Kevin Wade, a man from her past that she would rather forget.
- PresidentOmar Hassan's paranoid behaviour because of his brother's betrayal, resulting in distrust amongst even his closest allies.
- Renee Walker being reactivated, despite being fired from the FBI.
- An EMP is detonated at CTU, leaving them unable to assist with the mission to find the nuclear rods.
- The presence of a mole at CTU who is aiding the terrorists.
- High-ranking members of President Taylor's administration work behind her back in order to resolve the nuclear fuel rod crisis at the risk of destroying the peace process between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Kamistan.
- The reappearance of Charles Logan and his impact on other characters.
- Chloe O'Brian replacing Brian Hastings as the head of CTU and the impact it has on others.
- Renee Walker is murdered, prompting Jack to go rogue and defy Chloe and President Taylor to avenge her death.
- PresidentAllison Taylor's questionable actions to keep the peace treaty alive.
- RussianPresidentYuri Suvarov is revealed to be the mastermind behind the day's events.
Impacts on future seasons
- Jack Bauer, after committing a rampage that could've initiated another World War if successful, disappears at the end of the day and becomes a highly-sought after fugitive for the four years leading up to Day 9.
- The death of Renee Walker, and the botched suicide attempt of Charles Logan.
- Allison Taylor plans her resignation for her complicity in covering up the Russian involvement in the deaths of Omar Hassan.

24 (season 8)
Season of television series
The eighth season of the American drama television series 24, also known as Day 8, premiered in the United States on Fox on January 17, 2010. The eighth season was announced as the final season of 24 and its series finale aired on May 24, 2010. However, the series returned with a ninth season as 24: Live Another Day, which aired in 2014. The season's storyline begins and ends at 4:00 p.m.
Set 18 months after season 7, the story arc involves Jack Bauer contending with assassination threats made during a peace conference between President of the United StatesAllison Taylor and President Omar Hassan of the fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan (IRK). The season is set in New York City, with CTU's New York City Office having been re-activated, but while there were originally no plans for filming in New York due to budget constraints, some scenes were shot on-location.
The three main acts of season eight are:
- CTU pursues Hassan's brother who is working with the Russian mafia to have nuclear rods transported to his home country.
- Multiple government agencies pursue Kamistani terrorists who kill Farhad Hassan and attempt to strike at America directly.
- Jack wages a one-man war against the members of the Russian government who are responsible for the conspiracy after Allison Taylor refuses to do anything that could jeopardize the treaty.
- Jack worries that Renee Walker has become a danger to herself and others.
- A relatively inexperienced CTU team is limited in its ability to help Jack.
- Dana Walsh fears that she will lose her job when a stalker threatens to reveal that she has a criminal record.
- A mole at CTU helps the terrorists evade authorities.
- Extremists in the Taylor administration believe that the safest option is to give in to the terrorist demands.
- Charles Logan makes a return and wishes to exact revenge on Jack Bauer.
- Chloe O'Brian attempts to rein Jack in before his rampage either gets him killed or cause an international crisis.
The signing of an important treaty between the US and the IRK (Islamic Republic of Kamistan) is about to take place at the UN. Kamistani terrorists, resentful of America and disappointed at Hassan's willingness to concede their attempts at developing nuclear weapons, choose this day to attempt to assassinate the Kamistani president, Omar Hassan. The assassination attempt is initially led by Hassan's brother Farhad.
CTU learns from the rescue of Hassan that terrorists have a plan to acquire nuclear rods from the Russian mob. With the help of Renee Walker, who is struggling to keep her life together, Jack goes undercover and forces the cooperation of Sergei Bazhaev's mob family. The nuclear rods are given to Samir Mehran, when Bazhaev's older son Josef betrays him for killing his younger brother Oleg who was exposed to the rods and was suffering from radiation poisoning who plans to make a dirty bomb on American soil. Hassan's head of security, Tarin Faroush is revealed to be a part of Mehran's group and they present an ultimatum to Taylor's government — she must hand over Hassan for execution or the bomb will be detonated.
When Taylor orders that Hassan still be protected at all costs, a US black-ops team attempts to kidnap him. Jack Bauer and the rest of Hassan's protective detail kill all but one member of the team but upon learning of the ultimatum, Hassan turns himself into Mehran. With the nuclear crisis averted, CTU agents attempt to save Hassan and close in on Mehran. However, they arrive to see that Hassan has already been assassinated. Taylor is able to resurrect the treaty by convincing Hassan's wife Dalia to assume her husband's position as interim President and to sign the treaty on her country's behalf.
Considering their duties to be over, Jack and Renee return to his apartment where they have a romantic encounter. However, a Russian assassin follows them there and fires through the windows to tie up loose ends. Renee is hit and a frantic race ensues as Jack rushes her to the hospital. She dies on arrival whereupon Jack vows to avenge her death and bring everyone involved in the conspiracy and cover-up to justice. He learns that the Russian government are behind everything as they see the treaty as a threat to their influence in the world and supported and funded Mahran's group to destroy the peace process. Allison Taylor though outraged by the conspiracy, still believes that good can come from the signing and decides to continue with the proceedings. She fears that Jack's actions will be enough to have the treaty called off and orders his lockdown. Jack frees himself and at the cost of a third world war, begins to hunt down and kill every member of the conspiracy that killed Walker and Hassan. Chloe who has assumed control of C.T.U is forced to issue a manhunt for Jack. This leads to a cat and mouse game when Charles Logan approaches Allison Taylor and offers to use the unique resources at his disposal to capture Bauer. Chole has her authority challenged when Logan has Jason Pillar installed at C.T.U and tries to prevent him and Logan from having Jack assassinated before he can expose the cover up.
Jack kills Dana Walsh (the mole at CTU), Mikhail Novakovich (the Russian Foreign Minister) and Pavel Tokarev (the assassin who killed Renee). After ambushing Logan, Jack learns that Russian President Yuri Suvarov, who has arrived in New York for the signing is the mastermind behind the conspiracy. Jack aims a sniper rifle at Logan's office and orders him to lure Suvarov there so he can murder them both. Logan is forced to agree and Jack prepares to pull the trigger, but Chloe talks him out of it at the last second. When President Taylor has free rein to sign the treaty and have Jack permanently silenced she has a change of heart and turns herself in to the Attorney General. Wanted by Russian and American forces Jack says goodbye to Chloe who is watching him through the camera feed of a predator drone. She orders that the feed be turned off and sees Jack disappear from the screen as he disappears from her life.

Starting with episode 18, Chip Johannessen was promoted to executive producer by the production company Imagine Television. An interview with Kiefer Sutherland seemed to indicate that season eight would take place within very close proximity to the closing events of season seven, but ultimately the story picked up more than a year after the events of the previous season. The show got permission to shoot in the UN building in New York City but Kiefer Sutherland said that they would "probably use that primarily for exteriors".
In October 2009, the debut trailer for Season 8 aired on Fox. It was titled "Survive" and hinted that the eighth season would be the last with the line "All Jack Bauer has to do is survive one more day." The trailer shows Jack relaxing with his family and being warned about the impending threat to President Hassan's life. On November 26, 2009 a second trailer was released which featured the song "Run This Town" by Jay-Z.
On the review aggregator website Metacritic, the eighth season scored 67 out of 100, based on 19 reviews, indicating "Generally favorable reviews".
Gregory Itzin, who played former PresidentCharles Logan this season, was nominated for Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series, four years after getting the nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. The series also received the nomination for the Television Critics Association Heritage Award. In a review by IGN, the writing in Season 8 was compared negatively to the writing in other seasons with "It's always difficult to see a once vibrant and exciting show clearly drop in quality...the 24 writers simply didn't play fair – because there was no way the Dana from the beginning of the season could have been the Dana we saw later...This plot twist took an already frustrating character and made her even more of a mess."

24 Finale: A Showrunner Explains Why They Did That to Jack Bauer
This article contains spoilers, so come back when you’ve watched the Live Another Day finale.
Jack Bauer has always been one of TV’s most tragic heroes, but daaaaaaaamn,24. The cost of safety for the free world? Audrey is killed, President Heller won’t remember having a daughter, Mark goes away for treason, Kate leaves the CIA, Chloe’s left alone, and Jack? Jack’s in the custody of Russians eager for payback. This 12-episode “limited event” season was written to stand on its own, a one-time deal, but is this really the last we’ll see of Jack? Address all pleas for renewal — maybe in the form of “dammit!” voice-mails — to new Fox Television Group overlords Gary Newman and Dana Walden, and in the meantime, read our conversation with 24 co-showrunner Manny Coto about the gargantuan task of bringing Jack’s journey to a close. If it’s the end, it was a supremely sad and most excellent way to go.
How could you kill Audrey? Hasn’t Jack lost enough women?
We’ve always conceived Jack as a tragic character. I don’t think that’s news to people who watch the show. We felt there was a certain irony this season. Jack showed up to save Audrey deep-down. Chloe at the beginning of the season called Jack out on it. She tells him, “The reason you’re here is because of Heller and Audrey,” and he kind of admits it. There’s an irony that he ended up saving the world but losing the one person he really came to save. Season one closed with the death of his wife. There’s a kind of closure to Jack once again losing the person he loved the most but saving us all. In our minds, why Jack readily gave himself up to the Russians — it was partially to save Chloe, but you see there’s a smile on Jack’s face at the end. It’s wonderfully played by Kiefer. Kiefer understands the soul of Jack more than anybody, and he really felt there’s a penance he has to pay. In doing the good he does, there’s a lot of bad he does, and has done, along the way. He feels he must pay this penance, that Jack must pay for what he has done in some way. No matter how many lives he saves, there’s a balance that needs to be paid. That’s a long way of saying why we felt this tragedy had to befall Jack and Heller at the end of the season.
You say “closure.” Did you write the finale to be Jack’s final chapter? You weren’t considering the possibility of doing another season? Or a movie?
We always conceived this as the final season. We never went into this thinking there would be more. We wanted to approach it that way and really just deliver what we felt were the final moments worthy of a finale for Jack Bauer. Now, who knows what the future holds? Who knows if he’ll come back? You never really know. But there are no plans for anything more.
Then it ends horribly for everyone — Jack, Heller, Kate, Chloe, Mark. And me, too.
Again, for us, it’s balance. It’s more bittersweet. Yes, it’s tragedy for everybody, but we have to remember that World War III was averted. Billions of lives were saved, but there are losses. That’s the way it is in real life as well. It’s what makes it real, I think. It never comes out roses. In war, in treachery, in espionage, does anyone ever come out unscathed?
The thing that made me cry the hardest was what Heller says about losing his Audrey, and how because he has Alzheimer’s he’ll soon forget she ever even existed. Can you talk about writing that final scene from him?
We were searching for Heller’s reaction to his daughter’s death, and we went into the season knowing he’d been stricken by this tragic disease. It just occurred to us as we were writing that it would be ironic and devastating that if he were able to, in these terrible final moments, extract what for him is a silver lining — yes, I have this disease, but soon I will forget everything that happened. Once we hit on that, there was no other thing for him to say. He’s a man who has lost his daughter, and he’s searching and struggling for anything that can keep him going. This is what came to mind. We all believe it was real, and as tragic and as ironic and in some ways ugly as it is, inside his head, it makes perfect sense.
Earlier in the season, it looked like Margo had succeeded in blowing Heller up with a drone. We don’t see Jack saving Heller, but we hear about how it happened in the next episode. 24 doesn’t really do that kind of thing. Did you feel like you were being tricky doing that?
Well, I think we were just preserving a twist. We weren’t trying to be specifically tricky. It also felt like in that moment, his “death” should be Margo’s point of view. This was her goal the entire season, and we felt like being with her was an honest thing to do, and in that case, allowed us to pull a sleight of hand. Heller’s “death” was originally planned to happen in act four of that episode, and in act five, we reveal he’s alive. So it wasn’t originally planned to go over the week, but in plotting it out — sometimes in these shows, we do kind of know where we’re going, and sometimes the stories take over. We found ourselves ending the episode with that “death.” We were frankly a little worried about it. We never intended that to be something that played out over a week. We were worried about what the audience reaction would be and what have you, but sometimes that’s the way stories lay out, and we just had to run with it. What was good about the next episode is, yes, he was alive, but by then, Jack was already racing to Margo so people couldn’t catch their breath. They were like, Okay, great, he’s alive. Now go get Margo. And next thing you know, he’s throwing her out the window. Heller’s all but forgotten. [Laughs.]
This shorter run felt more planned in advance then any other season. True?
Yes, it was more pre-planned than ever before. I wouldn’t say every moment was planned or that we knew exactly what was going to happen, but we all knew where we were going and where this would end and what events would take place. Twelve episodes you can plan. Twenty-four is almost impossible. If we were in 24 episodes, we’d be flailing right now. We’d be throwing in filler episodes just to try to get to the end. This worked out quite well.
Even if you envisioned this as Jack’s swan song, there’s that moment where he’s gotta go after Chloe, and I thought that might be what a next season would look like. Did that idea ever cross your mind?
No, that was never really the idea. I will be honest with you — we were playing with various endings. It wasn’t always firm that Audrey was going to be the one to die. There were a lot of different characters that we discussed. A lot of it is a give-and-take in the writers’ room. There’s a lot of people with a lot of opinions. Actors have opinions. There were a lot of actors in London who I think were waiting for that terrible phone call.
Pick your favorite line: “Wake the bitch up!” or “Immunity isn’t on the table — but your hand is!”?
I would say “Immunity isn’t on the table — but your hands is!” I think that’s my favorite line.
Me too. There was a ton of action this season, but the car chase — or rather, drone chase — in the streets of London was especially impressive. How complicated was that to shoot?
Yes, absolutely. [Co-showrunner] Evan Katz and I came into the season really wanting to go back to the show’s action-thriller roots. So we consciously planned each episode to have a big moment, and to not let up. We knew when we were talking drones that at some point or another we wanted Jack to be chased by a drone.
Exactly. We didn’t know if it would be on foot or what. We ultimately came to this car thing, wrote it, and sent it off. “Good luck, London!” Good luck putting this together. But dammit if the production crew and director–executive producer Jon Cassar pulled off. To this day, I don’t know how they did it. I read that one of the car chases in Bourne Identity movies took six weeks to shoot. These episodes shoot in one week. I don’t know how this was done.
Why was Navarro shirtless for his interrogation?
Because in episode one, Jack is shirtless. We were using this device that was kind of a lie detector that took readings all over the body. We wanted to also show off that Kiefer had tattoos — we wanted to show that Jack was tough and had been through a lot in the four years. That Navarro episode we thought was a beautiful reversal of everything that had happened since episode one. Everything’s completely flipped. Navarro’s in the chair and Jack’s interviewing him. We felt it was right that Navarro get the same treatment Jack did, so he would have to be shirtless. For us, it was a parallel pair of scenes. It wasn’t anything to do with us wanting to see Navarro shirtless, although, you know, a lot of people liked that. [Laughs.]
If Fox wants another season, how would you feel about that?
I personally would be delighted. I love the show and I love working on the show. I think there are stories to tell. My fantasy — and this is just me — is that Jack Bauer arrives in Moscow and the Russians tell him, “We have no interest in keeping you incarcerated and/or torturing you. We actually need you.” That’s one possibility. You never know. I would love to see it keep going. But that’s just me.
Feel like saying anything nice about the new Fox bosses Gary Newman and Dana Walden? Maybe we can get this going together.
I will say that Dana is one of our greatest supporters and fans. She called Evan and I up on a couple of occasions — and she spoke as a fan — and she’d say, “Oh my gosh, I cannot believe what happened in this episode. Fantastic. I can’t wait to see the next one. When’s the next cut coming?” So, we were blessed to have someone who really loved the show as much as she did behind it.
Well, I hope I see more of Jack Bauer. Even though I have no idea how you’re ever going to give him another love interest. He can’t possibly look at another woman without feeling like he’s giving her a death sentence. Audrey’s it.
The only love interest he could have would be someone in some sort of concrete bubble. They could text long-distance. Actually, she’s in a secure location in a Nevada bomb site. Maybe that could work.
Season 24 final
24: Live Another Day
American television series
Season of television series
24: Live Another Day (also known as Season 9 or Day 9) is a 24limited event television series that premiered on May 5, 2014, and concluded on July 14, 2014, airing on Fox.Sky 1simulcast the premiere on May 6 in the United Kingdom and Ireland but switched to Wednesday nights for the rest of the episodes. It began airing in Australia on Network Ten on May 12, 2014. Set four years after the events of season 8, it adheres to the real time concept of covering the events of a 24-hour period and begins and ends at 11:00 a.m. However, there is a 12-hour time jump within the final episode.
Live Another Day takes place four years after the events of season 8. James Heller, now president, is negotiating a treaty in London, where a hacker collective preaching freedom of information has enlisted the help of Chloe O'Brian. Jack Bauer, who has been tracking the activities of Chloe's group while living in exile, resurfaces when he hears of an imminent attempt on Heller's life.
There are two main acts in Live Another Day:
- Margot Al-Harazi gains control of six US drones and uses them to attack London.
- Cheng Zhi attacks his former country China with hijacked American weapons bringing the two countries to the brink of war.
- Jack Bauer disapproves of the group Chloe O'Brian has joined.
- Margot Al-Harazi grows suspicious of where her daughter's loyalties lie.
- James Heller tries to manage a crisis amid the onset of Alzheimer's disease.
- Mark Boudreau opens himself up to blackmail by forging Heller's signature.
- Kate Morgan has been led to believe that her husband committed treason by selling state secrets.
- The head of the CIA London station, Steve Navarro, is conspiring with the leader of Chloe's group.
- CIA analyst Jordan Reed's hunt for answers puts his life into jeopardy.
- Circumstances reunite Jack and Audrey after nearly a decade.
- America's plans for a treaty are derailed when they lose control of their own weapons.
- Cheng Zhi partners with the Russians who are looking for Jack.
While anti-drone protesters gather outside the American embassy where James Heller is staying, officers at a CIA outpost in London find and apprehend federal fugitive and former agent Jack Bauer. Due to her husband's conviction, Kate Morgan is being forced to hand in her badge. However, she gets herself reinstated when she realizes that Jack is infiltrating the CIA to gain access to Chloe O'Brian. Kate is too late to intervene and Jack breaks Chloe out of interrogation with the help of his friend Belcheck. Still distrustful of Chloe, Jack follows her to Open Cell, an organization that specializes in leaking government documents. He explains that he is on the trail of Derrick Yates, a former Open Cell member who has become involved in an assassination attempt on James Heller. The attempt is revealed to involve drones when he programs an unmanned aerial vehicle to fire on British and American troops. The pilot, Chris Tanner, is falsely arrested on murder charges.
Jack and Chloe learn that Yates' device has been taken by Margot Al-Harazi, a known terrorist trying to avenge the death of her husband. When their attempt to capture her daughter Simone fails, Jack breaks into the American embassy to analyze Tanner's flight key and prove that the threat is imminent. Jack locks himself in a room with three hostages and tries to upload the data to Open Cell's leader, Adrian Cross. Marines break in before the upload finishes but Kate Morgan is able to place him in CIA custody instead. In the President's quarters, Chief of Staff Mark Boudreau expresses concerns that Bauer is a terrorist and drafts an agreement for extraditing him to Russia. Suspecting that dementia has clouded Heller's judgement, he forges the President's signature and vows to protect his wife Audrey from any further pain related to Bauer. Jack is ultimately proven right when Margot Al-Harazi broadcasts a video calling for Heller to turn himself in or face attacks on London from six U.S. drones.
When Simone's husband Navid tries to sabotage the attacks, Margot executes Navid. Leaving her son Ian to pilot the drones, she sends Simone to silence Navid's family. When a missile kills several CIA operatives, Heller authorizes Bauer to go undercover with an arms dealer known for working with Al-Harazi. From transaction records, they are able to track Simone and see that she has been struck by traffic in her pursuit of Navid's niece. When Margot learns that Simone is being interrogated in the hospital, she sends a drone to destroy it. Jack and Kate escape with Simone and convince her to reveal Margot's last known whereabouts. The subsequent raid uncovers enough information to give Chloe access to the drone's camera. Meanwhile, CIA analyst Jordan Reed uncovers evidence that Kate's husband Adam Morgan may have been innocent all along. Station Chief Steve Navarro arranges to have him killed in order to cover up his own involvement in selling intel to China and framing Morgan. The assassination does not go as planned and leads to the deaths of both Agent Reed and the hitman.
With Margot's deadline approaching, Heller decides to turn himself in and put an end to the civilian losses though he first pardons Jack for his crimes. Jack delivers his friend to Wembley Stadium where Margot's drone is waiting but convinces him to turn back when Chloe devises a plan to loop the video feed. Thinking that Heller is still inside, Margot and Ian fire on the stadium and then sink five of the six rogue drones. Upon learning that Heller is alive, Margot and Ian try to attack Waterloo station with the last drone. Jack arrives with a CIA team before this can happen and kills both of them. Jack takes Yates' device back to the CIA to be analyzed. Upon arriving, he learns that Jordan's body has been found and identifies the second body as an assassin working for Navarro. Before Jack can apprehend him, Navarro escapes with the device and delivers it to Adrian Cross. Adrian explains to Chloe that some underground dealings with China are needed to finance their activism and takes her to an Open Cell chapter. They find that all of their colleagues have been murdered by Cheng Zhi, who wants to reprogram the override to start a war between the United States and China. Cheng kills Adrian, kidnaps Chloe and fabricates a torpedo launch order that sinks a Chinese aircraft carrier.
Russian operative Anatol Stolnavich contacts Mark Boudreau about the rendition order. When Boudreau tries to withdraw it, Stolnavich threatens to reveal that the signature has been forged. Boudreau co-operates and gives him access to a frequency used by Bauer. As a result, Jack is attacked by Russians on his way to retrieve the override and Cheng has time to escape. Upon discovering that his encrypted frequency was given to the Russians from within the White House, Bauer confronts Boudreau and tells him that Russia will benefit if the United States and China go to war. Heller immediately arrests Boudreau but then delays custody, allowing Boudreau to assist Jack in the raid of a Russian diplomatic compound. He distracts Stolnavich long enough for Jack and Kate to break in but Stolnavich dies in the ensuing struggle. Audrey meets with a contact of hers, the daughter of a high-ranking Chinese official, hoping to convince her that the naval attacks were perpetrated by Cheng and not the American government. Even though Cheng is unable to stop Chloe from escaping, he uses a sniper and has Audrey's secret service guards killed. He contacts Bauer saying that Audrey will die unless he gets safe passage out of England.
From the files in Stolnavich's compound Jack finds out how Cheng is planning to escape and sends Kate to rescue Audrey without attracting attention. Chloe re-establishes contact with Jack and sets up satellite surveillance of the freighter that Cheng has boarded. While Jack and Belcheck raid the ship, Kate eliminates the sniper and tells them that Audrey is safe. However, a second shooter in the area fires several shots and Audrey dies in Kate's arms. Devastated by her loss, Jack kills all of Cheng's bodyguards and transmits proof of Cheng's whereabouts to President Heller and President Wei. He kills Cheng immediately after the authenticity is verified. As the military advances are called off, Heller is told that his daughter is dead and Jack and Belcheck see that Chloe has gone missing again. Jack receives a phone call from the Russians demanding that he turn himself in to them.
Twelve hours later, Kate resigns from the CIA out of regret and Mark awaits trial for committing treason in his attempt to save Audrey. Heller is left to mourn his daughter as his memories start to fade away, and Jack reluctantly gives himself up to Russian agents in exchange for Chloe's freedom despite being pardoned by Heller.

In May 2013, Deadline Hollywood first reported that Fox was considering a limited-run "event series" for 24 based on a concept by Howard Gordon, after failed efforts to produce the 24feature film and the cancellation of Kiefer Sutherland's series Touch. David Fury confirmed on Twitter that he would also be involved, pulling "double duty" with Gordon's new series Tyrant. The following week, Fox officially announced 24: Live Another Day, a limited-run series of twelve episodes that would feature the return of Jack Bauer. Fox CEO Kevin Reilly said that the series would essentially represent the twelve "most important" hours of a typical 24 season, with jumps forward between hours as needed. As with the rest of Fox's push into event programming, the production will have "a big scope and top talent and top marketing budgets."
In the press release, Gordon said:
Jack Bauer has always been an exciting, thrilling character, and I confess that I've missed him. I think the audience has too. The character has evolved through the years, and this new and exciting event series format is perfect to tell the next chapter of his story and continue to reflect how the world is changing. Fans can rest assured that the Jack they know and love will be back.
Kiefer Sutherland, who was confirmed to executive produce and star in the new series, added:
The response to 24 is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before. To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint. Great thanks to 20th Century Fox Television, Imagine Television and the FOX network for this opportunity. Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon.
In June 2013, it was announced that former 24 director Jon Cassar was signed on as executive producer and director of Live Another Day, directing six of the twelve episodes. The remaining six episodes were given to former 24 director and producer Milan Cheylov, and new 24 directors, Adam Kane and Omar Madha. Executive producers and writers Robert Cochran, Manny Coto and Evan Katz were also announced to return.Sean Callery returned as the music composer for the series.
The writing process began on July 1, 2013, with David Fury pitching the first episode, which was tentatively titled "6:30–7:30". On July 11, 2013, executive producer Brian Grazer announced in an interview that the 24 miniseries would "be a limited series that would then spin off into a series itself. Fox is doing it, Fox studio and Fox network, and we're totally thrilled by that." In October 2013, it was confirmed the series would be set and filmed in London, England, United Kingdom. Pre-production and location scouting by the crew, including Jon Cassar, began in November 2013. The production offices for Live Another Day were based in the Gillette Building in west London, previously used for Red 2. Production began on January 6, 2014.
In a May 2014 press release, Fox billed the eighth episode as the franchise's 200th episode.
A promotional video was shot on January 22, 2014, with filming beginning for the series on January 26. The first teaser for the show aired on Sky1 on January 21, 2014, but did not show any new footage. The first American trailer, titled "Street Chaos", followed four 10-second teasers during Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2, 2014, but didn't show any footage from the series. Also, a promotional image was sent to Entertainment Weekly on February 20, 2014.
In March, another promo with actual footage was released, showing the President of the United States arriving in London; Bauer being spotted there on camera by the CIA; and him telling Chloe that "there's no going home" for him. A 20-minute preview of Live Another Day was released by Fox on April 7 and broadcast on May 3.
Kiefer Sutherland was immediately cast as Jack Bauer on May 13, 2013.Mary Lynn Rajskub was announced as the second official cast member in August 2013, reprising her role as Chloe O'Brian. In October 2013, it was confirmed that Kim Raver and William Devane would reprise their roles as Audrey Raines and James Heller, respectively.
The first new character to be cast was Michael Wincott's hacker character Adrian Cross. One month later, two more characters were added to the cast: CIA agents Erik Ritter and Jordan Reed played by Gbenga Akinnagbe and Giles Matthey respectively. On December 19, 2013, it was announced that three-time Primetime Emmy Award winner Judy Davis had joined the cast as the villain Margot Al-Harazi. However, Davis later exited the role for "personal family matters"; the role was recast with Michelle Fairley. On January 13, at a TCA panel discussing the show, it was announced that Yvonne Strahovski would play CIA Agent Kate Morgan.Benjamin Bratt was cast as her boss Steve Navarro.
On January 21, Tate Donovan was cast as Heller's Chief of Staff and the husband of Audrey Raines, Mark Boudreau. On January 24, Stephen Fry was cast as the British Prime Minister Trevor Davies, later renamed Alastair Davies. On the same day, relatively unknown actor Charles Furness was cast in a "small guest part" as Peter, a member of Chloe's hacker group. On January 26, Ross McCall was revealed to have acted in Live Another Day by Jon Cassar playing Ron Clark, assistant of Mark Boudreau. The next day, John Boyega was announced to be playing drone pilot Chris Tanner. Among the last actors to have his role announced was Colin Salmon playing U.S. General Coburn.
Solitary is a story extension included in the Live Another Day Blu-ray set which was released on September 30, 2014. It takes place approximately three years after the events of Live Another Day and features the return of Carlos Bernard as Tony Almeida as he attempts to be released from solitary confinement. In Solitary, Tony requests to be moved from solitary confinement to general population, in an interview with a Department of Justice attorney and the prison administrator. Tony explains that he could supply inside information to the government regarding other criminals, such as Mexican cartels and al-Qaeda. When the request is denied, and a guard uncuffs him, he attacks the attorney, throwing her to the ground. During the attack, Tony is able to take her glasses without anyone noticing. Later, the attorney calls a man to confirm that Tony has the plans. Back in his cell, Tony puts on the glasses, which reveal they have escape plans in the lenses.
