24 Season 8 News!

Fox has reported that the next season will premiere January 17th, as a two hour event, and the typical "four-hour" premiere split between that week's Sunday and Monday.

Joining the cast this coming season are Katee Sackhoff ("Battlestar Galactica"), Freddie Prinze Jr., Mykelti Williamson (Bubba from "Forrest Gump"), John Boyd, Jennifer Westfeldt ("Grey's Anatomy") and Chris Diamantopoulos ("The Starter Wife").

The location of the season will be New York City. Apparently CTU will make it's return, run by the character Brian Hastings (Williamson),

Cole Ortiz (Prinze Jr.) fills in the "Chase Edmunds" role, with Dana Walsh (Sackhoff) and Arlo Glass (Boyd) as other members of CTU. Rob Weiss (Diamantopoulos) will be President Allison Taylor's chief of staff. Meredith Reed (Westfeldt) is a journalist.

Kiefer Sutherland, Cherry Jones, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Annie Wersching return.

Lets see how they treat New York's geography. Knowing that everything between Las Angles and New York is just "flyover" I can't imagine that they'll get too much incorrect. I'm still trying to take the 355 to Highway 236 past Lambourne Marina and the Port of Alexandria located across the river from Georgetown. And then maybe next week I can drive by the Kennedy Memorial Hospital which is apparently directly behind the United States Botanic Garden.
