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?
Cmon fox I know you think everyone has a 9-5 job and races home to view your channel but the real working class grinds all week and has to Hulu our shows on a weekend marathon, everyone I talked to (and it’s a lot of people) are upset with your choice, it’s a shame you make decisions on people being home for ratorahip.
I loved 24 Legacy and want it renewed !! This was by far the best show on T.V. It seems like none of the stations give the new shows a chance and there cancelling them. PLEASE another season !!!
Awesome show!!! Bring it back for MORE Seasons! The reason MOST shows don’t have high ratings as they’re airing, their first season especially, is because EVERYBODY “Binge Watches”!!! I personally don’t watch shows until I can watch an entire season!!! I Never watch shows weekly!
I seriously hope they renew this show! It was the best action – suspense filled show out!
Loved the show! I wasn’t able to watch it on TV because DirecTV stopped giving us local channels. However, I did watch it on Hulu. Please bring it back!
I am so very, very much hoping that there is a season 2. I did not miss one episode. Season 1 was my first time really getting into the episode and I keep looking for this to come back. I vote do not cancel FOX!
I hope they renew another season of 24 I didn’t miss one episode I was also a 24 Kiefer Sutherland fan please do not cancel Fox
I loved the show! Whenever you have a show as beloved as 24 you need time to get acclimated to new characters! So does the pressure the actors have in living up to a previous mega hit show! The actors in Season 2 will be more relaxed and find there own niche! The writing and storyline is still phenomenal so please continue to thrill us! A huge fan begs you!
I enjoyed the show but even if it’s cancel why is it they can never finish the story why can’t you just bring it back and finish it
Liked it alot & want it to be renewed please.
The “great thing about” or, conversely, “the problem with” 24, depending on how much you loved it or, conversely, disliked it, was, is and always will be that 24 and any configuration of that franchise was, is and always well be JACK BAUER, first, last and none other. I personally liked this show immensely; however, it was not 24 nor shall any other permutation of the franchise ever be 24 without the inimitable original lead character. He was simply so engrained in the consciousness (in a very good way) of the 24 viewer that it would take a rebirth with… Read more »
24 Legacy I would say was not as good as the original, however, it was solid. I never had the chance to watch on the night, but certainly caught up on Hulu. Eric Carter will become more relaxed in his role and think he can be his person, but also have a little Jack Bauer in him as well. I am hoping for a second season. Look at all the other serious that don’t even have the ratings that 24 has. Why are they waiting???

No Season 2. What a relief. My wish came true. 24: Legacy was a huge letdown for fans of 24. You could tell in the first ten minutes of the first episode that you were in for a lot of disappointment. Not the fault of the actors, who did what they could with the lousy plot and unintriguing characters. 24 has loyal fans, but FOX betrayed us.
Please Fox don’t let the legacy end I’ve been addicted to the 24 ever since it started and with this new spin off it’s got more interesting and intense so as a true fan of the show my an several friends would be very disappointed if it ends with the death of a close friend of his and ours…..P.S MAY THE LEGACY LIVE ON. …….
Please bring it back on air.
