President Taylor: Single, Fighting for World Peace on 24

at . Comments

When 24 returns for its eighth season this January, Emmy winner Cherry Jones will still occupy the Oval Office as President Alison Taylor.

But there will be no First Gentleman to speak off, following Taylor's falling out with her husband last season because she ratted out the couple's corrupt daughter.

“I’m not married anymore,” Cherry told TV Guide Magazine. “I am the first woman and divorcée in the White House.”

There will be a brief discussion of the divided Taylor clan when season eight debuts, but then it's on to the issue of world peace, Jones said.

That should be a challenge, with villains such as Callum Keith Rennie causing serious global problems.
