LOS ANGELES, May 13 (UPI) -- Kiefer Sutherland is to star in a 12-episode limited run of his canceled U.S. political thriller series "24," starting in May 2014, Fox announced Monday.

Former show-runner Howard Gordon is to produce the mini-season of the series. The critically acclaimed action-drama initially ran from 2001-10.

"'24' compressed over 12 weeks, Jack is back," The Hollywood Reporter said Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly told reporters early Monday during a conference call.

The news comes shortly after the network canceled Sutherland's drama "Touch," which ran for two seasons.
