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 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.

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.
5/15 update: 24: Legacy was not renewed by FOX. There will be no season two, for now but it “could” happen in the future. Details here.

What do you think? Were you hoping that FOX would cancel or renew 24: Legacy for a second season? Does this new TV series have staying power?
Very disappointed that 24’s 2018 season has not materialized. One of the few shows that was worth watching these days – TV seems to cater to sit-coms the millennials watch only, and the rest of us get all our favorite shows cancelled! This show appeals to a wide variety of viewers, so please continue it again – we’ve all been waiting!
Canceling this show was very , very stupid and ” Irresponable “. Fox can ” Kiss My Ass ” . Your station “absolutely sucks “
24 should continue African Americans can play SERIOUS lead roles. Enough of lead roles like the TV serious lethal weapon
I was hoping 24 Legacy would return! I loved the show!
