24 is getting a new spin-off series with a new younger lead.

Showrunner Howard Gordon revealed the news at the recent the Critics Choice Television Awards, stating Fox is developing a spin-off that would revolve around a new twentysomething male terrorist hunter working alongside an older, more seasoned female agent.

TV Line reports Kiefer Sutherland‘s Jack Bower will periodically guest star, and that Yvonne Strahovski’s Kate Morgan, will not be playing the female agent – although she also may still appear. The new series will continue in real-time in the same vein as 24,  launching with a limited series with hopes it may continue if it does well.

24: live Another Day writers and executive producers Manny Coto and Evan Katz will continue their roles for the new series.
