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?
Please don’t cancel 24 legacy. When I’m done watching one, I can’t wait for the following week.
This definitely has potential to continue. I believe it could unravel closure for Jack Baur eventually.
Keep waiting for Jack to show up, cmon Keifer, write yourself in
I love this show! 24:Legacy is every bit as good as the original. And that comes from someone who couldn’t imagine 24 without Kiefer Sutherland. I hope 24:Legacy gets the renewal it so richly deserves. There’s so much crap on TV. Please don’t cancel this action packed quality show!!!
I hope this show is renewed
Jack Bauer is now president of United States. This show is ok but please let’s be real this man is not Jack.
It should be be Renewed for a TV movie and for a season two because a lot still like the show
There should be mini series for 24 Legacy or a TV movie for of them to have one more 24 thing to watch!
Love this show!
I worked on this show and I can tell you that the passion and energy you see on screen was also my experience on set. I am extremely pleased at how well its done. Filling Jack Bauers shoes was, I am sure, a daunting task. But Eric Carter has managed to win the largest part of the hearts of Jack Bauer fans! I love it!
I never miss this show. It’s a must watch for me. Unfortunately I have to work when the show airs in real time so I record it for my family to watch on the weekend. We are praying that it will be picked up for a second season.
Dreadful is right. This is beyond a remake of the dynamic Jack Bauer series. Pl bring back Keifer!!!!!
No there should not be a second season of the show it won’t make the ratings get good it will make them go down more for each episode!
Just make Two 2 hour 24 Legacy TV movie that takes place two years after the end of season 1 that mite help the ratings go up !
I love Eric Carter. I think he is amazing. I don’t think anyone could fill in
as the original Jack Bower but this guy is doing a great job. I feel his acting on the screen and the tension he feels. Hopefully they will renew this show!!!!
Really dreadful show down to acting and production value. The magic just isn’t there anymore.
Cancel if Jack is not back
24 w/o Jack Bauer is like air w/o oxygen- BRING JACK BACK!!
Fingers crossed 24: Legacy is renewed!
Thank you Georgia. I was hoping someone else could see beyond the Jack Baur character and realize that this is really a very good show.
