Statistics Edit

Billing Edit

  • Main cast actors, despite being first-billed, rarely appear in all the episodes of a given season. Some appear in relatively few episodes – for example, Regina King appeared in only nine episodes of season 6. Seasons 1 and 3 are the only seasons in each main cast member appears in every episode.
  • The second actor credited in the opening of all episodes is always a woman:
  • Of the main cast in 24 and 24: Legacy, Kiefer Sutherland has the most appearances (205) while Charlie Hofheimer has the fewest (6).
  • Season 1 has the smallest main cast, with five people, while Season 1 of 24: Legacy has the largest main cast, with twelve people.
  • Season 4 is the only season of 24 in which all of the main characters share scenes together.
  • Season 4 is the only season in which guest stars are upgraded to main cast status partway through. After making six guest appearances, Lana Parrilla was upgraded in episode seven but exited the show in episode 13. After making 13 guest appearances, Roger Cross was upgraded in episode 14 (to "replace" Lana) and remained in the main cast through Season 5.
  • Season 4 is the only season to not have an official cast photo of the main cast and omit main cast members from individual promotional photos, as only Kiefer Sutherland and Kim Raver receive them. However, special guest stars Carlos Bernard and Reiko Aylesworth are featured.

Merchandise Edit

  • 24: The Official Companion: Seasons 1 & 2 lists Penny Johnson Jerald and Carlos Bernard under the heading "Regular Cast" alongside the main cast for Season 1.
  • 24: The Official Companion: Seasons 3 & 4 lists Mary Lynn Rajskub under the heading "Regular Cast" alongside the main cast for Season 4.
  • Jeffrey Nordling, Rhys Coiro (for Season 7) and John Boyd (for Season 8) were conspicuously digitally removed from the full cast photos featured on the backs of the DVD and Blu-ray cases. The three are the last billed regulars in credits order in their respective seasons (with the exception of the special "with" and "and" credited actors).
  • Beginning with Season 5, the backs of the DVD and Blu-ray cases list the members of the main cast, but only Season 5 has the correct information regarding the regulars. Season 6 lists Roger Cross as a member of the main cast but does not list Carlo Rota, Eric Balfour, or Marisol Nichols; Season 7 lists Jon Voight as a main cast member but does not list James Morrison, Colm Feore, Bob Gunton, Jeffrey Nordling, or Rhys Coiro; and Season 8 does not list Chris Diamantopoulos or John Boyd. Like the above note, the uncredited cast members are the last ones billed excluding the "with" and "and" credits. The sole exception to this is James Morrison, who was billed in between Cherry Jones and Annie Wersching for Season 7 but still was oddly left uncredited.

Character deaths Edit

Season 4 is the only season where no main cast members (past or current) are killed.
