Four years after we last saw him, former government agent Jack Bauer is in hiding as a federal fugitive. When US President James Heller decides to make a visit to historic London while negotiating with the British government, Jack hears rumors of a coming attack on the President. Still loyal to his country, though it sees him as a traitor, Jack makes the decision to come out of hiding and protect the President. Unfortunately for Jack, coming out of hiding means the CIA is able to quickly locate him and conscript him to help their organization, and he becomes wrapped up in a conspiracy, just like old times. He quickly finds that there is more going on than simply an assassination plot, and he enlists help from a former CIA agent and a collective of hackers to get to the bottom of everything before a full scale war breaks out.
