What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, 24: Legacy, is yet another race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Six months prior, in Yemen, Sergeant Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins) and his elite squad of US Army Rangers killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. After the sheik’s his followers declared a fatwah, the squad and their families entered the federal witness protection program. A new attempt on Carter’s life makes it clear that his team is now exposed. He enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU. She’s supporting her husband, Senator John Donovan (Jimmy Smits), in his campaign for President of the United States. The rest of the cast includes Teddy Sears, Dan Bucatinsky, Anna Diop, Ashley Thomas, Charlie Hofheimer, Coral Peña, Gerald McRaney, Raphael Acloque, and Sheila Vand.
Season One Ratings
24: Legacy premiered over two nights, with the first hour airing directly after Super Bowl LI. This greatly skewed the ratings upwards. Plenty of people just kept watching FOX after the game and the ensuing post-game coverage, or didn’t bother turning off the TV. The second hour, which aired the following night, dropped off sharply, and earned much lower (although still respectable) numbers. Later ratings have been a different story. FOX is truly behind this 24 sequel series but the numbers do not bode well. FOX may renew 24: Legacy for a second season but, based on the ratings, they probably shouldn’t.
