According to a New York Post online story, the new season of 24 will take place roughly four years after the events of season six. The story notes …
For those keeping score at home, that means that 17 TV years have passed since Season 1, when Bauer first took on the Eastern European bad guys bent on revenge and destruction – and he was said to be 35 years old.
Meaning Jack will be 52! give or take, although he’ll look extremely good for his age, since Kiefer is only 41. Fox it would seem are simply try to laugh it off with quotes like this …
“Luckily, like all great iconic characters, Jack Bauer is ageless.”
Sound off in the comments about what you think.
Update: As a commentor pointed out, the articles maths are out, having double checked the maths, 13 years will have actually passed since the events of Series One, making Jack a more reasonable 48 in Day Seven.
