The new series follows Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), a soldier who comes back from the Middle East only to find himself preventing a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. The cast also includes Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits.
Even though Sutherland said earlier that he wouldn’t be in the new series, he is executive producing 24: Legacy. And according to fellow executive producer Howard Gordon, there is a possibility that Bauer might pop up as a guest star in the future.
At this week’s ATX Television Festival, he said:
I do think the character has life in him, whether it’s a movie or if he intersects with this new iteration of 24, [Legacy]. I sure would love to see him at some point on the show, and I don’t think he’s ruled it out, either.”
24: Legacy premieres on February 5th, 2017 on FOX.
