In less than two weeks, Fox is hitting the reset button on the real-time hit series 24. The reboot titled 24: Legacy follows Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) as the brand new hero Eric Carter. Carter is a former army ranger who has just returned home from the middle east after leading a successful mission to terminate the leader of a major terrorist organization, Bin-Khalid.
Carter’s hellish day kicks off when he’s been targeted by members of Khalid’s organization operating within the United States. With no one to trust, Carter turns to the former head of the Counter Terrorist Unit, Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Coto) who coordinated his mission in the middle east.
Fox has released a brand new extended first look as well as character profiles on Eric Carter and wife Nicole Carter and former director Ingram.
The extended first look reveals a MacGuffin known as the “strong-box”, teasing the mysterious terror plot to come. In addition, the first look also teases the new director of CTU Keith Mullins (Teddy Sears) as a potential mole when Carter reveals only the heads of the NSA, CIA, and CTU were privy to the true identities of the members of Carter’s team from his mission to take out Khalid. Former director Ingram must work within CTU to uncover the mole and stop the mysterious attack from happening before it’s too late.
You can check out the extended first look and the character profiles on Carter, Ingram and Nicole below!
24: Legacy also stars Jimmy Smits, Dan Bucatinsky, Anna Diop, Ashley Thomas, Coral Peña, Renah Gallagher, Charlie Hofheimer, and Raphael Acloque.
The clock resets Sunday, February 5th after the Superbowl.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A military hero who returns to the U.S. with a whole lot trouble following him back. With nowhere else to turn, the man asks CTU to help him save his life while also stopping one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
