Nominated for his sixth consecutive Best ActorDrama Series Emmy Award, Kiefer Sutherland continues to ignite the screen as the rugged hero Jack Bauer, along with gripping performances from the series returning ensemble cast, including Mary Lynn Rajskub (“Chloe O’Brian”), James Morrison (“Bill Buchanan”), Jayne Atkinson (“Karen Hayes”), Roger Cross (“Curtis Manning”), Eric Balfour (“Milo Pressman”), Carlo Rota (“Morris O’Brian) and DB Woodside (“Wayne Palmer”) taking over the reigns as the new President. Season Six also welcomed several new actors to the series, including Rick Schroder (“NYPD Blue”), Peter MacNicol (“Ally McBeal”), Powers Boothe (“Deadwood”), Marisol Nichols (“Blind Justice”), Kari Matchett (“Invasion”), Regina King (Miss Congeniality 2), Harry Lennix (“Commander in Chief”), Rena Sofer (“Heroes”) and Emmy Award-nominee James Cromwell (“Six Feet Under”) as the introduction of Jack’s father.

Synopsis:

After twenty months in a Chinese prison, Jack Bauer is suddenly returned to the United States. But instead of being free, Jack’s release is part of a secret deal: his life in return for the location of Hamri Al-Assad, the leader of a terrorist organization that has unleashed a wave of terror across the country. A broken man, physically and mentally, Jack agrees to the exchange. But when he learns that his new captor, Abu Fayed, is actually the man behind the attacks and that his own sacrifice is meaningless, Jack lashes out and escapes. Now he must convince the President and CTU that the man they are trying to kill may be the only man who can end the rapidly escalating violence.
