    EVERY SECOND COUNTS AS KIEFER SUTHERLAND RETURNS AS JACK BAUER IN “24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY” ARRIVING ON BLU-RAY AND DVD SEPTEMBER 30​
    Blu-ray Includes “24: Solitary,”
    The Shocking Story Extension to “Live Another Day”
    LOS ANGELES, CA (July 24, 2014) – One of television’s most critically-acclaimed dramas returns for one more mission as “24: Live Another Day” arrives on Blu-ray and DVD September 30 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Starring Emmy® winner Kiefer Sutherland* as legendary hero Jack Bauer, the action-packed series follows our hero in real time over 12 episodes as a new terrorist threat unfolds overseas.
    The year’s most anticipated television event, “24: Live Another Day,” delivers more explosive action than viewers could have hoped for! Exiled in London for four years, former Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer (Sutherland) must spring into action to try to save U.S. President James Heller (William Devane). In retribution for a drone strike he ordered, Heller sits in the crosshairs of the widow of an al-Qaeda leader. Along the way, Jack faces his ex-love, Heller’s daughter Audrey (Kim Raver), who’s married to chief of staff Mark Boudreau (Tate Donovan). Teaming with CTU operative-turned-hacktivist Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), Jack risks everything to try to protect the U.S., prevent a global terrorist attack and outrun the CIA head (Benjamin Bratt) – as the pulse-quickening tension unfolds in real time!
    Deemed one of AFI’s "Top Television Series of All Time" and winner 20 Emmy Awards, “24: Live Another Day” takes Jack to a foreign land for his most dangerous mission yet. The Blu-ray comes loaded with bonus material including “24: Solitary,” an intense story extension of Season Nine. Additionally, both the Blu-ray and DVD include the featurette “When Worlds Collide” illustrating how this thrilling season and the pulse-pounding storytelling stems from today’s terrorism and government headlines, “Destination London” focusing on shooting overseas, “Green Production” about the environmentally responsible making of the show and deleted and extended scenes.
    Fans who want to experience every second of Jack Bauer’s heroism can also pickup, 24: The Complete Series on September 30, which features all nine seasons, including “24: Live Another Day” and the TV movie 24: Redemption.

    Absolutely mystifying that Fox is neglecting a complete series release on Blu-ray. If any Fox TV property would sell on BD, it has to be 24. Most of the Amazon "reviews" of the set mention the lack of a Blu-ray option.

    And I think someone knows what they are doing, because their advertisements / press releases have often slyly implied a complete series Blu-ray, but then once you click, you find the big box is DVD-only. At the same time, now, though, they are freely putting the new season Blu-ray right alongside it, with its Blu-ray quality and exclusive extras.

    So it's almost like the consumer is being beaten over the head with the problem.

    I will buy when the series hits BD. I feel it is a certainty.

    This would have been the perfect opportunity to introduce the earlier seasons on Blu-ray to go along with the latest miniseries. A missed opportunity to my way of thinking though, of course, I'm thrilled the latest installment is getting a Blu-ray release.

    I know I reviewed season eight on Blu-ray, but were any earlier seasons released on Blu-ray?

    Season Seven was released on Blu-ray too. The show is so old (the first season is from 2001-02) that some of the early seasons were finished on video so I don't know how much chance there is that Fox will upgrade it any time soon. Unfortunately, I think if the S7 and S8 sets had sold well, Fox probably would have already gone back and released more of the early seasons.

    Something is going on at 20th Century Fox....budget cuts? I don't know. But they also decided not to release Blu-Rays for the next seasons of "Modern Family" and "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" . The first 4 seasons of "Modern Family" Blu-rays were always announced for release the same time as the DVDs. But the upcoming Season 5 DVD was only announced. Same with "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" (however, like 24, the beginning of this series was not released on Blu-Ray.....I believe only seasons 5-8 were released on Blu-Ray). And why not release the complete series for 24 on Blu-Ray?......I can see this being release on Blu-Ray even more so than the two sitcoms mentioned. I hope this is all premature and EVENTUALLY all these series will be on Blu-Ray......but is 20th Century foretelling about the future of their T.V. series being released on Blu-Ray? If it is, it's very disappointing.

    Similar story with season 9 of Bones being possibly dvd-only too.

    Also Hawaii Five-0 (at Paramount), where season 4 was announced as possibly dvd-only.

    Unfortunate, but not surprising for the most part.

    I'm sure it's as simple as poor sales on their TV Blu-rays.

    It's such a shame. The shows look SO much better on Blu-ray.

    I have read that Seasons 1-8 were all done on 35mm film and Live Another Day was done on Digital.

    Yeah but the final renders (clocks, splitscreens, etc) for seasons 1-3 were all done in standard def (Day 4 was the first to be broadcast in HD). Also the pilot and a few other early episodes are 480i.
