Ladies and gentlemen, Jack Bauer is back.

May 5 at 8 et/pt on Global, Kiefer Sutherland returns as CTU agent Jack Bauer when the iconic series 24 is rebooted with 24: Live Another Day.

The 12-episode limited series follows Jack Bauer after he's gone rogue and split from CTU. Speaking at a Television Critics Association event, Kiefer Sutherland had this to say about the transformation of his character in the upcoming revival:

"He’s had enough bad things happen to him that he really doesn’t trust anybody, so I think he’s even a harder character now than he ever was. And trust me, in the last few seasons of 24 he was a very hard guy — but he’s even harder now."

Filming of the much anticipated series begins soon in London, England.
