24: Legacy is the reboot of Fox’s acclaimed series 24 that starred Kiefer Sutherland as Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) agent Jack Bauer. Created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran, the series was a hit and spanned 192 episodes over eight seasons. 24 also garnered critical acclaim, winning numerous awards including Best Drama Series at the 2003 Golden Globe Awards and Outstanding Drama Series at the 2006 Primetime Emmy Awards. By the end of season 8, 24 became the longest-running U.S. intelligence/counter-terrorism-themed television series ever, outdoing both Mission: Impossible and The Avengers.
In the new version, Corey Hawkins is playing the leader of an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers that killed a terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwa against Carter and his squad, forcing them into federal witness protection and making them question who they can trust.
Considering the huge success of its predecessor, the viewers now have high expectations from 24: Legacy.
