Taking time off has done Jack Bauer some good, it seems. After a creatively shaky sixth season and a writers-strike-disrupted seventh season, the long delayed ‘24’ has come roaring back this year. And with just a few hours left to go, fans and producers are already looking ahead to what’s next.

According to Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello, the eighth season will see Jack and company changing coasts with a move to New York City and the restoration of CTU, as well as the return of President Taylor (Cherry Jones).


Also returning will be Jack’s potential love interest, FBI Agent Renee Walker (Annie Wersching), whose past will reportedly play a big part in next season’s storyline. Jack’s chances with her just went up 100% now that Walker’s boyfriend, Larry Moss, was -- SPOILER ALERT -- killed by double-double agent Tony Almeida. (Seriously, this guy just needs to pick a side and stick with it.)
