In early March, FOX announced that a 24 two-hour Season 7 prequel would air this fall. At that time, not much was known about this special event expect that the action would take place after the Season 6 finale and before the Season 7 premiere. Eventually, we got wind that Jack Bauer would be heading to Africa even if the idea was scrapped in September because of production cost.

Today, FOX confirmed that Jack Bauer would battle an international crisis in South Africa in the two-hour prequel set to air on Sunday, November 23 at 8 p.m.

While Jack is busy in South Africa (these scenes were shot on location by the way), the U.S. citizens are welcoming new president Allison Taylor. The network also reveals that these events will take place a few months before Day 7 and will set stage for the drama to be faced by the characters in the new season.

Executive producer Howard Gordon reassures fans by saying the prequel will explore Bauer's complex emotional state of mind and will still feature the suspense they have grown to love and expect from the series.

Day 7 of 24 will air on Mondays at 9 p.m. starting in January 2009. The series will also celebrate its 150th episode during this seventh season.

Oh, and another thought: does anyone else think they should have gone theatrical with this? They have been promising us a genuine theatrical movie for years now...

Do I remember reading that they weren't going to be doing a special DVD-only season "bridge" on season 6's set like they had for the past few seasons? Funny that this happened in the end.
