Strahovski joined the cast of Fox’s 24: Live Another Day in 2014 as Kate Morgan, CIA Agent Kate Morgan. Kate Morgan worked as a CIA agent in London, England, and was the wife of disgraced CIA officer Adam Morgan until his apparent suicide.
During Live Another Day, she was about to be transferred back to the US due to her husband’s traitorous status, but she was re-instated after confirming that Jack Bauer was up to something in London. After learning that Jack was attempting to thwart President James Heller’s assassination, Kate joined forces with him to prevent Margot Al-Harazi from using hijacked drones.
Then she discovered that Adam was falsely accused of selling secrets to China by Steve Navarro after Navarro stole the Defense override module and assisted Jack in his attempt to prevent Cheng Zhi from triggering a war between the United States and China. Then Kate went to save President Heller’s daughter Audrey Boudreau from Cheng’s men, but Audrey was killed by a second gunman, prompting Kate to resign from the CIA. Kate was the wife of CIA agent Adam Morgan, who was charged with selling US state secrets to the Chinese despite protesting his innocence and was placed in protective custody pending trial.
Prosecutors planned to charge Morgan with treason, with a maximum sentence of life in prison. Because of this, the CIA agent and Kate’s colleague Erik Ritter disliked her, believing that she was well aware of her husband’s alleged treason, despite her denials. Kate was questioned by the CIA for two months after Adam was accused of being a traitor, but she was eventually cleared of wrongdoing. Despite being cleared, she was scheduled for a transfer back to the United States during the week of Day 9.
