TV show description:
This action-adventure TV series follows in the footsteps of the original 24 TV series with the same real-time format. The first season chronicles a race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil.
Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of US 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. This forces them into federal witness protection but 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.
Decades of sleepless nights and missed anniversaries landed Ingram at the top. 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, Carter and Rebecca 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.
Other characters include: the ambitious head of CTU, Keith Mullins (Teddy Sears); CTU communications analyst Andy Shalowitz (Dan Bucatinsky); Andy’s partner and the cousin of former CTU Agent Edgar Stiles, Mariana Stiles (Coral Pena); Eric’s wife, nurse Nicole Carter (Anna Diop); Eric’s older brother, Isaac Carter (Ashley Thomas); Eric’s former comrade in the Army Ranger unit, Ben Grimes (Charlie Hofheimer); and Nilaa Mizrani (Sheila Vand), Senator Donovan’s campaign manager.
Episode #12 — 11:00 PM-12:00 AM
Rebecca’s deal to save Donovan doesn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, CTU must rely on Carter to go out into the field and facilitate an important exchange.
First aired: April 17, 2017.
