In a press release sent to the web site TVshowsOnDVD.com, the DVD distributor Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announced that 24's eighth season will arrive on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 7, 2010 in North America.
In the final season, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), a former agent of the fictive Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU), lives in New York with his daughter, Kim (Elisha Cuthbert). Besides, Jack is embracing a new role: being a grand-father. However, a mysterious man and a reborn CTU seek his help to prevent the assassination of a Middle Eastern president, Omar Hassan (Anil Kapoor), at the United Nations' headquarters. In fact, the USA and some predominantly Muslim country (Iran?) are about to sign a peace treaty.
This peace treaty stipulates that the Muslim country must give up its nuclear ambitions in the name of peace in the Middle East. Nevertheless, there are people within the Muslim country's delegation, government and extremists who would like to have president Hassan killed rather then seeing their country kneel before the West. Besides, as the CTU's and Jack's investigation advances, it appears that non-Muslims also had a hand in the assassination attempt on president Hassan.
The show also star Elisha Cuthbert, John Boyd, Katee Sackhoff, Mykelti Williamson, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Freddie Prinze Jr., Annie Wersching, Gregory Itzin and Chris Diamantopoulos.
