24 is moving Jack Bauer to New York City. After six seasons in LA and one in D.C., the Fox show is being moved to the Big Apple. Much of the shooting will still take place in LA, but the show will actually be based in NYC. Shooting will begin next month.
Season 8 will be about CTU making a comeback under the leadership of a new character named Brian Hastings.
The character hasn’t even been cast yet. Described as an MBA type with a razor sharp intellect, Hastings will be joined by two new twentysomething agents (one male, one female), as well as Mary Lynn Rajskub's returning Chloe.
But speaking of new castings, one character we do know about is Slumdog star Anil Kapoor, who will play the part of Arman Hashemi, a Middle Eastern leader on a peacemaking mission in the U.S.
This will be an exciting move for the show! After 7 seasons, it’s important to shake things up a little bit and keep the fans interested!
