It's Official: Kim Raver on Board for 24: Live Another Day -- and [Spoiler]'s Joining Her

Audrey Raines 24 Event SeriesThe countdown to 24‘s Jack-Audrey reunion has officially begun.

Following up on TVLine’s exclusive report last month, Kim Raver has formally closed a deal to reprise her role as Kiefer Sutherland’s former onscreen love in 24: Live Another Day – and she’s not the only franchise vet returning for Fox’s 12-episode revival.

TVLine has confirmed that William Devane, who played Audrey’s father James Heller, has also inked a deal to appear in the London-based event series.

Raver joined 24 in Season 4 and remained through Season 6. When last seen, in the S6 finale, Audrey was in something of a vegetative state after being tortured and injected with mind-altering drugs by her Chinese captors — a development that led Devane’s Heller to forbid Jack from ever seeing his daughter again.

24: LAD, slated to launch in the spring, will essentially be 24 “compressed over 12 weeks,” Fox president Kevin Reilly previously explained. “It will go chronologically over the day, but it will skip hours.”

    It would be refreshing seeing Jack again in action.

    By the time we reach day9, Let’s assume for a minute that Audrey has regained at least 90% of her mental and intellectual habilities (after all several years of treatment and care have passed…) When and if she reunites with Jack, she will certainly not be pleased to see him, she would be angry! Why? well because since James Healer will certyainly not tell his daughter that he is the one who told Jack to stay away from Audrey, she will think Jack just gave up on her because of her mental state after the torture she went through in China, where she was captured while trying to regain/obtain Jack’s freedom.

    Now that i think about it, so what if Healer told his daughter the truth, she will still be angry, here is the guy who can do the impossible to defuse terrorist plots, it takes one conversation with Audrey’s father and he cuts all ties not even an email, a letter, a postcard, a phone call??? (assuming he really did cut all ties with Audrey and her father)

    The notion that Renee was a better match because she was like him field agent who went to those dark places like jack is ridiculous. The only people cops and law enforcement agent can be married with are cops and law enforcement agents. Audrey understood where Jack had to go to do his Job, but seeing it for the first when he had torture Paul (a man she still had feelings for?) that would be disturbing for anyone… A wuss and pathetic, well for a woman who is not a trained field agent or anything to take the risk to go to this totalitarian state called China to free Jack after he was captured by chineese, when no one else was looking for him (not healer, not buchanan, not tony, not chloe, no one…) that to me is love and bravery! She has totaly earned her place as Jack Greatest love interest, the only one that tops her is of course Teri Bauer.

    Kate warner would av bn ideal 4 jack, but her character is too soft, one with zero military/self defence experience, so most likely terrorist may get hold of her 2 threaten/slow down jack as the case may b… So audrey is stil d girl

    Bring back Renee! She was just want Jack Bauer needed! Bring her back..Audrey is very annoying…

    • Please bring back Tony Almeida, a great actor. He could be pardoned to help Jack. Too bad Audrey is back all I remember about her is her crying all the time. So sad they can’t bring back Renee, she was perfect for Jack.. Aaron needs to come back and bring back Morris, Chloe’s husband. He was so great. OMG I can’t wait. This is the greatest tv series of all time.

    • Let me get this straight. The writers are supposed to perorm an act of ressurection/bring back to life a now been dead for over 4 years character who was shot mulitple times. She died in surgery being performed by a surgical team in a hospital and under the observation of a medical team with legal supervising authority who declared her dead. And all of this is to be set aside because Audrey is annoying? Are we talking about the same Audrey who had such love and commitment that she went to China in search of Jack. There she endured such mental emotional and physical torture that she came home a tool of these communist agents that their torture methods caused her to be broken and go into a catonic state! Then her dad Jack Heller tried to ream Jack Bauer a new one when he came to try and take Audrey to be with him!. Get real people, Renee is dead! As in having assumed room temperature! Of course the play off on Audrey’s character may well be to take on Martha Logan qualities of mental instability. Now there is a real kick in the head if they do; it’s bad enough that they have Chloe going all dark, renegade, and depressed! That’s depressing just to ponder on as we wait for May 5th come.
