The complete sixth season of the real-time drama series. 18 months after Day 5, the U.S. President has negotiated Jack's release from a Chinese prison so that Jack can help stop terrorists attempting to set off 'suitcase nukes' in U.S. cities. Unfortunately time is not on his side, and an explosion rocks LA. As well as trying to catch the terrorists, Jack is having problems with his family, which appears to be becoming involved with right wing patriots. Elsewhere, Jack's Chinese abductors inform him that they have Audrey Raines (Kim Raver) in custody and will only exchange her for classified Russian intelligence. When Russia gets wind of the situation, relations between the two superpowers head for meltdown.
