You haven’t heard the last of former President Charles Logan on “24.”

FOX announced Monday that actor Gregory Itzin will reprise his role as the disgraced chief executive next year on the eighth season of the TV action drama.

Itzin will be acting in several episodes alongside current President Allison Taylor, played by Cherry Jones, when the show returns Jan. 17.

Says “24” executive producer Howard Gordon: “The opportunity for these two remarkable actors to share the stage was simply too compelling to pass up.”

Logan was last seen during Season 6 en route to a hospital after being stabbed by his wife, played by Jean Smart. At the beginning of Season 7, viewers were told that Logan was alive but under house arrest.

Itzin earned an Emmy nomination for therole.
