"The response to 24 is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before," Sutherland said in a statement on 24's Facebook page. "To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from [executive producer] Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint. . . . Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon."
