Fox has set a premiere day for the return of ''24,'' planning a two-night, four-hour event in January.

The seventh season debut will air on Sunday, Jan. 11 and Monday, Jan 12 at 7 p.m.

The network used a similar rollout plan for 2007's sixth season premiere. Delayed due to the writers' strike, the premiere is the first new regular episode of ''24'' in nearly two years.

''Day Seven'' opens with CTU dismantled and Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) on trial. Bauer's day takes an unexpected turn when former colleague Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) returns after being presumed dead.

Two-hour prequel movie ''24: Redemption'' will give viewers a head start on the season when it airs Sunday, Nov. 23.
