There's a simple rule on "24": It doesn't matter how seriously wounded somebody seems, if you don't see a corpse, they're probably not dead. And even if you see a corpse, they still may not be dead.
So fans of "24" probably won't be even slightly surprised by FOX's Monday (Nov. 2) announcement that Gregory Itzin has signed on for a multiepisode arc returning to the series as former President Charles Logan.
Itzin was nominated for an Emmy for his work as Logan, who initially seemed like a spineless puppet, but was later revealed as an orchestrator of a vast, treasonous conspiracy. Logan was last seen in Day Six, when his character was stabbed by wife Martha (Jean Smart). He was taken off in an ambulance bloody and was seemingly on the verge of death, but his condition was never mentioned subsequently in that season or in Day Seven.
While FOX is happy to spoil Itzin's return, the network offers no information on when Logan will be back on "24," except to say that in a moment of national crisis President Taylor (Emmy winner Cherry Jones) is forced to turn to him for help. Given the lateness of this announcement, the character probably won't appear until at least the middle of the season.
"The opportunity for these two remarkable actors to share the stage was simply too compelling to pass up," says executive producer Howard Gordon in FOX's statement.
Day Eight of "24" premieres on FOX in two-night, four-hour style on Sunday, Jan. 17 and Monday, Jan. 18.
