“24” fan-favorite Mary Lynn Rajskub reunites with award-winning star Kiefer Sutherland when she returns to the storied franchise to reprise her iconic role as CHLOE O’BRIAN, CTU systems analyst and JACK BAUER’s (Sutherland) confidante, in the thrilling new tent-pole event series 24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY premiering in spring 2014 on FOX.


Joining “24” in Season Three (2003), Rajskub clocked the series’ second-most episodes of any actor appearing in the series’ eight-season run from 2001-2010. Day after day, the always-awkward and intelligent O’Brian was Bauer’s CTU sidekick, as her tech mastery, unconventional tactics and know-it-all mentality proved critical in his heroic missions.


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


24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY restarts the groundbreaking and Emmy Award-winning drama franchise. The suspenseful event series will follow the further exploits of heroic agent JACK BAUER, taking up his story several years after the events of the final season. Once again, viewers will join Jack on a pulse-pounding ride in real time.


Rajskub, a highly prolific actress and comedian, has appeared in films such as “Firewall,” “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde,” “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Punch Drunk Love,” “Dude, Where’s My Car?,” “Storytelling” and “Road Trip.”


24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY is a production of Teakwood Lane Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television. Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Robert Cochran, Brian Grazer, Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland will executive-produce. The original series, which had its last American broadcast on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Cochran.

  • WylieCoyote

    Chloe was the kind of person that got on my nerves, but 24 would not be 24 without her. Opening scene: Jack & Chloe in bed together. Just you wait.

    Ccemerson, FOX has said 24:LAD will only be 12 episodes. “[It’s] 24 compressed over 12 weeks. It will go chronologically over the day, but it will skip hours. It will be dictated by the plot. Those were when the big events occurred, and then there were little events and connective tissue in between. So [we’re] taking the best 12 [of the 24].”
