24 will return in 2010 for a two-night premiere on Sunday, January 17 at 9/8c and Monday, January 18 at 8/7c before it replaces Lie to Me on Mondays at 9/8c for the rest of its run.
Kiefer Sutherland will return for the 8th season, which he revealed the starting timeline for as beginning very quickly after the end of season 7.

Cherry Jones, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Annie Wersching are the only main cast members from season 7 who will also be returning as main cast members in season 8.
Elisha Cuthbert will once again appear as a “Special Guest Star” and Bob Gunton will be back as Ethan Kanin, but this time as a recurring role and with Kanin as Secretary of State.
As for Carlos Bernard’s role as Tony Almeida, the show’s producers have not confirmed, nor denied, the fact that Bernard will appear in season 8. However, in a recent interview, Carlos Bernard revealed he has NOT been contacted by the producers about returning to 24 and since the show is well into filming already, it is likely we will not see Tony again, at least not in this season.
