Jack Bauer won't head back to 24 alone. Mary Lynn Rajskub will again link up with Kiefer Sutherland's counterterrorism expert as sidekick Chloe O'Brien, The Associated Press reports. Rajskub, who joined the show in its second season, appeared in more episodes than anyone but Sutherland during the series' original incarnation.

The revived show, titled 24: Live Another Day, arrives next May for a 12-episode miniseries-style run, and will pick up Bauer's storyline several years after the events of the last season, which ended in 2010. The original show, which ran for eight seasons between 2001 and 2010, was nominated for 73 Emmys, winning the award for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006.
