NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Chloe has Jack Bauer's back once again: Mary Lynn Rajskub will be back for the return of "24," Fox announced Thursday.
Rajskub will reprise the role of CTU systems analyst and Bauer confidante Chloe O'Brian in "24: LIve Another Day," airing on Fox next spring. After joining "24" in Season 3, she had the second-most episodes of any actor in the show's eight-season history.
"I am thrilled to be working with Howard and the writers again - and, of course, Kiefer!" said Rajskub. "There's a lot more room to grow in my character... I'm going to start sharpening my computer skills now!"
The new series picks up several years after the last season of "24." This time, Fox has said, the show will feature only the 12 most eventful hours in a 24-hour cycle.
Rajskub has also appeared in films including "Firewall," "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde," "Sweet Home Alabama," "Punch Drunk Love," "Dude, Where's My Car?," "Storytelling" and "Road Trip."
"24: LIve Another Day" comes from Teakwood Lane Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television. Howard Gordon, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Robert Cochran, Brian Grazer, Jon Cassar and Kiefer Sutherland will executive produce. The original series, which ended its run on May 24, 2010, was created by Joel Surnow and Cochran.
