Show Summary

24 is an American action television series created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran and presented in real time, with each season depicting a 24-hour period in the life of Jack Bauer, who works with the United States government as it fights fictitious terrorist threats to the United States.

Broadcast by Fox in the United States and syndicated worldwide, the show aired from 6 November, 2001 to 24 May, 2010. There are 124 episodes (and a TV movie) in eight seasons.

24 originally premiered in South Africa on M-Net on Thursday 31 January 2002, at 19h00. It was moved to DStv's M-Net Action channel for the 7th season, as well as the preceding television movie 24: Redemption. It later aired on e.tv (first season only) and TopTV's Fox Entertainment channel.

When Fox Entertainment became FOX in 2013 the final season aired on the new channel, which was broadcast simultaneously on TopTV and DStv. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times by channel.

Season 2 premiered on Fox Entertainment on Wednesday 6 October 2010, at 23h15. New episodes broadcast daily, seven days a week. There are 24 episodes in the second season.

Season 2

The 2nd season is set approximately 18 months after the first season. The main plot of the season revolves around David Palmer – who is now the President – and Jack Bauer’s attempts to stop a band of terrorists from detonating a nuclear bomb in the Los Angeles area.

We also meet Kate Warner, who suspects that her sister’s boyfriend is part of this terrorist group and is instrumental in getting vital information to CTU.

As with season 1, Season 2 can be broken into two acts. The first half of the season focuses on CTU attempting to stop a Middle Eastern terrorist cell from detonating a nuclear bomb in Los Angeles.

The second half sees Jack, Kate, and CTU try to prevent a misdirected retaliatory strike from the U.S. by exposing the real masterminds who let the terrorists acquire the bomb.

Other subplots include Kim Bauer being on the run after rescuing a girl who had been abused by her father. President Palmer also suspects that he may have traitors within his cabinet. Another subplot is the growing relationship between Tony Almeida and Michelle Dressler.

The season ends with yet another major plot twist – The nuclear bomb situation is resolved, but President Palmer collapses after being attacked with a biological weapon in an assassination attempt.

Events that will affect future seasons

• Is President Palmer dead? This was only resolved in the third season
• Who exactly are "Max" and Trepkos?
