Next year’s ’24’ is taking place in NYC! With the success of Season 7, the changing locations seem to be working out for everyone. Most of the show’s episodes will still be filmed in California with NYC location footage mixed in for effect.
According to EW’s Michael Ausiello, CTU will be back under new leadership and Slumdog’s game show host Anil Kapoor joins the cast as Arman Hashemi, “a Middle Eastern leader on a peacemaking mission in the U.S.”
Even more news from Ausiello:
Question: Will Annie Wersching be back next season on 24? I hope so. The Jack-Renee dynamic is one of my favorite things about this season. –Josh
Ausiello: Not only is she coming back next season, but exec producer Howard Gordon tells me that “some part of her past will be necessary in the context of the next crisis.” Gordon also confirms that Cherry Jones’ President Taylor will return for the Big Apple-set Day 8. “Cherry truly defined this character and fashioned our first truly aspirational President since David Palmer,” he says. “She brought an emotional weight and intelligence that exceeded even our expectations.”
