With eight seasons, a video game, multiple web series, a wildly popular televised miniseries and more, the 24 franchise has gained quite a lot of notoriety over its years on the air. The series racked up multiple Emmy and Golden Globes nominations and wins over the course of its run, earning accolades for people both in front of and behind the camera.
With a new season entitled Legacy on the way (check out the shiny new trailer for it here) and rumors of a movie still hanging around, the series doesn’t appear ready to die yet. Still, the large and ever changing cast has gone on to do some extremely successful things since the end of its initial run in 2010. Here’s Where Are They Now? The Cast Of 24.

Since his turn as CTU agent Curtis Manning, Cross has appeared in a number of other TV shows. He has had recurring roles on The L Word, The Guard, The Gates, Eureka, The Dark Corner, Arrow, Motive, Fringe, The Returned, The Strain, Dark Matter, Continuum and Bones.

Clarke moved on from playing the traitorous Nina Myers in 24 by appearing in the 2005 dramedy Happy Endings with Lisa Kudrow and Steve Coogan. She then spent a few years guest starring in TV series and appearing in TV movies before landing the (unmemorable) role of Bella Swan’s mother in the Twilight series. Clarke was seen in four out of the five high-grossing vampire romance films, though with limited screen time.
Clarke also starred in the short lived TNT series Trust Me and has had recurring roles on Men of a Certain Age, Covert Affairs, The Tomorrow People and The Booth at the End, with husband Xander Berkeley, whom she met on the set of 24. Currently, she is starring on Amazon’s Bosch with Titus Welliver.

9. Kim Raver (Audrey Raines)
Raver jumped quickly to being a series regular on Brooke Shields’ comedy Lipstick Jungle after the end of her run on 24. The show lasted for two seasons until it was cancelled, at which point Raver landed a starring role on the long-running Grey’s Anatomy. Her character left the show after season eight (wisely, we might add).
Raver then moved on to a recurring role on NBC’s Revolution before reprising her 24 role in the mini-series 24: Live Another Day. She has also had guest starring roles on Bones and NCIS: Los Angeles, and appeared in TV movies Bond of Silence, The Secret Lives of Wives, The Advocate and the upcoming Zoobiquity.

Currently, he is starring on CBS’ Saturday night staple The Inspectors, a crime drama about a postal inspector who solves mail-related crimes. Bernard has also directed four episodes of the series.
4. Elisha Cuthbert (Kim Bauer)
Cuthbert has stuck mainly to television since coming off her long run as Jack Bauer’s daughter on 24. She first appeared in Christian Slater’s procedural crime drama The Forgotten before moving into comedic territory with ABC’s Friends-like Happy Endings. Cuthbert played the series’ ditzy but charming female lead, Alex, for three seasons before the cult favorite’s cancellation in 2013.
Cuthbert then went on to star in the dramedy Just Before I Go with Seann William Scott and the short-lived TV series, One Big Happy. She also has a part on Ashton Kutcher’s Netflix comedy The Ranch, and will be seen in Jay Baruchel and T.J. Miller’s 2017 comedy Goon: Last of the Enforcers.
3. Dennis Haysbert (David Palmer)
Haysbert played Democratic president David Palmer for five of 24’s eight seasons. Afterwards, he moved on to starring as Nelson Mandela in The Color of Freedom before landing the leading role of Jonas Blane on The Unit. He also did voiceover work, providing vocals for Master Ox in Kung Fu Panda 2 and General Hologram in Wreck-It Ralph, before moving to work with The Office’s Rainn Wilson on the short-lived FOX series Backstrom.
For upcoming projects, Haysbert can soon be seen in the FBI drama Land of the Free, the Syfy series Incorporated, should it get picked up to series, the comedy Fist Fight with Charlie Day and Ice Cube, horror film Dead Rising: Endgame, and can be heard in the upcoming video game Sniper: Ghost Shooter.
2. Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe O’Brian)
Rajskub has had a number of guest starring roles on TV series since 24, including Royal Pains, Raising Hope, Grey’s Anatomy, The Mentalist, Newsreaders, New Girl, Arrested Development, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, 2 Broke Girls, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Californication.
She is currently starring as lawyer Erin Roberts on Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience, and can be seen in the upcoming adventure films A World Away with Rowan Blanchard and In Search of Fellini with Ksenia Solo. She has also been attached to Stephen Merchant’s upcoming TV series Dream Corp LLC. She also reprised her role in the miniseries 24: Live Another Day and in the 24 video game, and we frankly can’t imagine the series without her. We’d love to see her brought back in some capacity for Legacy.
1. Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer)
Series star Sutherland went straight from 24 to voicing the evil Beauceron Bosco in Marmaduke. He then moved back into television, working on The Confession with John Hurt and a power plant security guard on The Simpsons. He landed the lead on the FOX thriller Touch, although it was cancelled after two seasons.
In film, he has been featured in Melancholia with Kirsten Dunst, The Reluctant Fundamentalist with Live Schreiber, Pompeii with Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington, and Forsaken with his father, screen legend Donald Sutherland. The younger Sutherland also made a return to 24 with 2014’s 24: Live Another Day, reprising the role of Jack Bauer for 12 episodes, and we’re hoping he pops up at some point in Legacy. Fingers crossed.
