It was confirmed in January that 24 was set to continue without Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland). We weren’t sure how to feel about that but the first trailer from FOX for the new season, 24: Legacy, looks very promising indeed.
24: Legacy chronicles an adrenaline-fueled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil.
Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection.
Watch the first trailer for 24: Legacy below:
A recent attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear to him that his team is now exposed. To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. She’s a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU to support her husband, Senator John Donovan (Jimmy Smits), in his campaign for President of the United States.
With the White House within their grasp, can she truly embrace a new role as First Lady? Or will her love of the action draw her back in? Together, in this fast-paced thrill ride, Carter and Ingram uncover a sophisticated terrorist network that will force them to ask: “Who can we trust?” As they battle Bin-Khalid’s devotees, they are forced to confront their own identities, families and pasts.
Will Kiefer Sutherland return for a Jack Bauer cameo? 24: Legacy is set to air in February 2017.
