The clock was reset for a new day – but with a new hero with 24: Legacy, which premiered on February 5, 2017 – aka Super Bowl LI.
Set in real time, 24: Legacy starred Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) as Eric Carter, a former Special Forces soldier who led a team of Army Rangers to take down an elite terrorist. However, the terrorist’s cell uncovered their identities and started to track them down one by one. Knowing that he’s next, Carter and his wife must go on the run: forcing him to turn to Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), the former head of the Counter-Terrorism Unit (CTU), for help. When he uncovered a possible terrorist attack on American soil, Carter realized that the only person he can trust is himself, and that he is the only one who can stop this threat from happening.
24: Legacy also starred Emmy winner Jimmy Smits (L.A. Law, NYPD Blue, and The West Wing) as Rebecca’s husband John Donovan, a Senator who’s running for President. Original series member Carlos Bernard reprise his role of Tony Almeida, who once worked at CTU alongside Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), whose legacy has continued to lived another day after day in saving the world from terrorists as well as seeking his own redemption. Sadly, Bauer doesn’t appeared or wasn’t even mentioned in 24: Legacy, yet Sutherland (who was working on Designated Survivor at the time) was one of the show’s executive producers.
24: Legacy took over Gotham‘s time slot on Monday nights, as the “Mad City” of future Batman Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) went on hiatus until spring of that year with “Heroes Rise”.
Like 24: Live Another Day, though, 24: Legacy only lasted 12 episodes. However, you still have time to watch it from the beginning on Hulu.
