Kim Raver is in talks to return to "24" for the revival series "Live Another Day," HuffPost TV has confirmed.
As first reported by TVLine, Raver is nearing a deal to reprise her role as Audrey Raines, the former love interest of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) in the 12-episode event series, which is scheduled to premiere in May 2014.
Raver first joined "24" in Season 4 and remained a regular through Season 5, before appearing in a recurring capacity in Season 6, in which her character was kidnapped and tortured by the villainous Cheng Zhi and his men. Although she was seen in a catatonic state, executive producer Howard Gordon later reassured fans, "Audrey is so not dead. She’s not even in a coma. In my opinion, she is at the very worst in a psychiatric facility, but she may also be married to a contractor in Virginia who has a child."
If Raver's deal is finalized, she'll join fellow "24" alums Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub in the new season. Behind the scenes, executive producer Jon Cassar is reteaming with Gordon, who will be showrunning "Live Another Day."
With 12 episodes instead of the standard 24, the show will look a little different when it returns, which Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly expressed his enthusiasm for: "They always had this idea of someday doing a feature film. I think they all agreed that '24' compressed into two hours is not '24.' ... What they'll be able to do is go in chronological order of the day, but skip hours. Howard is really energized over it, and so are we."
