Chloe's back! Mary Lynn Rajskub rejoins Kiefer Sutherland for Fox's 24: Live Another Day!

Aug. 1, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Fans of 24 can breathe easy as Mary Lynn Rajskub has just been announced to return to the show for its limited series run as the feisty computer analyst, Chloe O'Brian, who ended up becoming the requisite sidekick to Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer and a staple to the 24 brand.

I am thrilled to be working with Howard (Gordon) and the writers again and, of course, Kiefer!, said Rajskub. Theres a lot more room to grow in my characterIm going to start sharpening my computer skills now!

So far, only Sutherland and Rajskub have been announced as returning to the limited series iteration of the show, but I'd expect to get a few more old favorites back. However, that's a very short list, as the show was renowned for killing off the most beloved and hated castmembers from season to season. Still, it's great to have the best of the "survivors" back on board.

24: Live Another Day is set to debut in the fall of 2014.

Live another day? Just keep Madonna far away from singing the theme song and we'll be good.

Great news! Now hopefully the show brings back Tony Almeida, and Chase.

Season 7 was fantastic because of the whole Tony storyline alone.

Never seen the show. Not interested. But I've seen Mary Lynn in a lot of interviews, and she's dorky and hot. Perfect combination.

Your missing out, I was a little late getting into it but it truely is one of the greatest shows of all time.

It's worth watching just for the refreshing format of being told in real time.

Chloe is such an asshole. I love her. They shouldn't bring anyone else back, that'll only give them good reason to kill them off. Every character I've ever loved on this show has been killed. I would however be open to a ridiculous, unrealistic explanation to having Edgar survive his death by nerve gas, because Louis Lombardi is awesome and I'd always like more of him.

Am I the only one who liked Chase? I know his hand was cut off in Season 3, but you know- they have ways around that these days.

I still think it's a shame they killed off Renee - she was the strongest female character they had - who could've taken over from Jack had Sutherland bowed out.

I too would like to see Tony back, and Aaron.

I think we should expect Kim back too, if only act as Jack tie to "home".

Every single season, I hoped they'd kill her off. But, nope, they'd rather kill off all the better characters and let this aggravating fucker survive again and again and again.

Oh Oh Oh....Morris O'Biren, Chloe's ex-husband.

He's awesome, though I've forgotten if he's kicked the bucket at some point in S7 or 8, I don't remember him being around after 6. Guess I'll remember within the next week or so when I finish them up. But yea, he was a fantastic character.

Quite excited about this.

I'm re-doing 24 at the moment in preparation for next year, currently just starting Season 7.

I think Tony needs to come back for some redemption at some point, but also I remember panicking every-time Aaron Pierce was on screen as he was an awesome side character and I have no idea how he somehow managed to survive all eight seasons. Every time he would be re-introduced I was sure that that would be the season he died in.

....oh God...it could still happen.

Ahaha there's no way David's coming back. Maybe Wayne though.

Press releases for season 7 mention Wayne bit the bullet after season 6. Not sure if that's canon, but that's what I've always assumed the past few years.

I would like to see Tony back if only to provide closure to his storyline, and I would like to see Aaron Pierce return to the series in some aspect (maybe as the new CTU director?)
