The premise of the pilot is chronicling the return of military hero, Eric Carter, to the U.S and trouble follows him back, compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
The cast of 24: Legacy includes Corey Hawkins (Eric Carter), Miranda Otto (Rebecca Ingram), Anna Diop (Nicole Carter), Teddy Sears (Keith Mullins), Jimmy Smits (John Donovan), Dan Bucatinsky (Andy), Coral Pena (Gia), Charlie Hofheimer (Marcus) and Ashley Thomas (Isaac Carter) and Sheila Vand (Nilaa).
The series order for 24: Legacy is set to consist of 12 episodes (like 24: Live Another Day) but will serve as an ongoing series, created by Manny Coto and Evan Katz, Imagine TV’s Brian Grazer and Howard Gordon and Kiefer Sutherland will serve as an Executive Producer.
It was obvious from the get go of the premise and the casting of the pilot that it felt like only a matter of time before FOX would give 24: Legacy a series order and honestly I’m looking forward to seeing what they do with the real-time format and brand new cast to follow. If it fails at least they tried, but if it works it could be something special indeed.
