Trivia
Harris Yulin, who plays the recurring character of NSA director Roger Stanton in Season 2, is not credited at all in the opening or ending credits. All recurring and guest stars have to share their credits on screen with one or two other actors, but Yulin wanted to appear alone on them. Because this was not possible, he decided not to be credited at all.

Season 4: Writer/Executive Producer Evan Katz was such a huge fan of Australian music duo Grant McLennan and Robert Forster of the band The Go-Betweens that he named the sinister corporation McLennan-Forster after them.

"24" broke with longstanding convention in television regarding the filming of telephone conversations. Ordinarily, when a telephone conversation is shot, only the actor whose end is being shot that day is actually present, with the other character's lines read by a script supervisor to maintain appropriate timing. But since telephone conversations are so frequent and so vital to "24," the show instead, whenever feasible, had both actors be present for the shooting of a telephone conversation, even though obviously only one was being shot at the time. An example of this technique is available on the season 2 DVD set, as Penny Johnson is present to provide her lines in a phone conversation with Dennis Haysbert, the actor actually being filmed at the time. Leslie Hope has commented that while she shared relatively little actual screen time with Kiefer Sutherland, she nonetheless felt she had had a rewarding acting experience with him, due to him being present for their many phone call scenes.

Q
What happened to Max and Trepkos?
A
After sailing off at the end of season two, Max seemed to have disappeared. The truth is Max was "taken care of" in 24: the Game, which took place roughly 18 months between season 2 and season 3.In the Game, Max's plot included releasing Ricin into the LA Harbor, an assassination attempt on Acting President Jim Prescott, a phony Sarin gas attack on the subway, kidnapping Kate Warner and Governor James Radford before ultimately conscripting and assassinating the latter, an attack on a U.S. Military base, and smuggling weapons out of the country with the coerced help of Bob Warner.The Game also followed up on how Chase and Chloe came to work at CTU, as well as delved deeply into Jack's relationship with Kate Warner. The Game also featured a secondary villain from Jack's pre-CTU past named Peter Madsen who targets CTU with an EMP in order to release a prisoner and obtain an important hard drive, kidnaps Kim, and coerces Jack into stealing confidential data from a CIA building.Alexander Trepkos' wherabouts are unknown at this time.In episode 3.1 Wayne Palmer reveals it was David Palmer who, in a weakened state, authorized a manhunt for the masterminds behind Day 2's events and arrested the one in charge, meaning that since Max and Peter Kingsley were both killed, and since Trepkos appeared to work beneath Max but above Kingsley, that Trepkos was likely the one arrested.
Q
Why didn't the government agencies respond to the nuclear bomb attack on Day 6?
A
It would be very hard to portray on television. In reality, if a nuclear bomb really went off in a major US city, it would likely be impossible for the story to focus on the main hero (Jack). Too many problems would need to be addressed. But season 6 was meant to focus on Jack's relationship with his father, so they had to just abandon that plot and moved on to a different plot arc.
Q
What exactly is Division?
A
No one really knows. But, it appears to be the regional oversight section(think Internal Affairs) of CTU that carries a large amount of jurisdiction and seems to mainly focus on crime scene investigation type work. Division is run by the Regional Director.The term "division" can be taken as a double entendre; on the surface, it is the administrative headquarters of CTU (and maybe some other agencies as well). But it is also possible to understand it as the source of excess bureaucracy that creates a rift, or "division," between the people who make decisions from a comfortable office and those who get their hands dirty in the field.
