Kiefer Sutherland is Back and Looking for Redemption in 24 Season Premier

If you haven’t heard, Kiefer Sutherland is back (tattoo and all) as Jack Bauer in the 24 Season Seven Premier “Redemption”

Gear up, because Kiefer Sutherland is back in the game, inked and all, reprising his iconic role as Jack Bauer in the season seven premiere of 24 titled “Redemption”.

Fox is roaring back after a brief lull, packing a punch with a riveting season storyline to reel viewers back in, and have them on the edge of their seats week after week. The adrenaline-packed trailer of 24’s seventh season is a testament to that.

Say goodbye to the days when Jack was solely on the tail of terrorists, nuclear threats, and rogue assassins. The stakes have skyrocketed as Jack now finds himself in the heart of a savage civil war, far from home soil, with a mission to protect innocent children. And who knows? With the kind of heroics we’re diving into, don’t be shocked if Jack ends up rescuing a few pups along the way. Though, having not seen the 2-hour premiere, who’s to say he hasn’t?

Brace yourselves, because the kill tally this season is going to be through the roof!

You know the drill. The body count in 24 is always staggering, spawning countless drinking games. But this time around, the foes are not just your run-of-the-mill villains; they are the absolute dregs of humanity. Masquerading under the banner of “freedom,” these fiends cross every line in the book, forcibly enlisting children into their brutal cause. These are the type of baddies even a sweet, church-going granny wouldn’t hesitate to take down with a glock. Watching such vile villains meet their end is going to be a grim satisfaction.

Though it sends chills down the spine, the grim reality is that the narrative isn’t entirely a work of fiction. While Jack Bauer may be a figment of imagination, the harrowing reality of child soldiers is not. But hey, let’s not dwell on the gloom. We tune into Jack and 24 for a heart-pounding escape, reveling in the thrill as Jack outsmarts, out-fights, and outguns his adversaries in scenarios even McGyver would throw in the towel on.

24 Show Premise According to Fox

Filmed on location in Cape Town, South Africa, and Los Angeles, 24: REDEMPTION stars Emmy Award winner Kiefer Sutherland along with Cherry Jones, Robert Carlyle, Gil Bellows and Jon Voight.

After sacrificing everything for his country, Jack Bauer is wanted by the U.S. government and now stands to lose the only thing he has left: his freedom.

Working as a missionary in Africa, Bauer is called upon to stop a ruthless warlord from drafting innocent children into his murderous militia. First, Bauer must confront his own torturous past and face an impossible decision that will change his life forever. A decision that will set the stage and raise the stakes for Season Seven, which debuts in January 2009.

The “24” 2-hour Season Premier Event is SUNDAY NOV. 23, 2008

So, without further adieu, here’s the season seven trailer.

REDEMPTION: 24 Season Trailer

As a little non-official contest, I’d like to see your thoughts on what the total body count is going to be for the entire season. The rules are simple; If Jack shoots someone – count them as dead (Jack never shoots to wound and he never misses). If Jack fights someone and they slump to the ground — count them as dead (Jack doesn’t take prisoners). I think you get the point.

So, let’s hear your predictions.

Also, if you want to refresh your eyes a bit, you can now watch entire episodes of 24 on Hulu.
