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.

Bring it back no one wants to see the other boring shows
season 2 of 24 should be renewed. i thought the show was great.
My family and I looked forward to 24 every week. There are many shows that could be cancelled bit this is NOT the show to cancelled. Bring it back.
My family absolutely loved it! So disappointed its not coming back!
What is wrong with Fox? Times have changed. Tons of people have watched the show during a binge, after the season finale, and learned to love it. It deserved at least one more season as it was just picking up momentum and gaining a broader audience. There’s no way I would have quit so easily — it would have made it.
RENEW!!!! a really good tv show!!!! I hope it comes back
24 legacy the story line for the series is phenomenal. I am looking foward to season 2. 24 legacy and shots fired. They are favorite.

You need to renew, I stayed up one nite catching up on the season and enjoyed it

You should have renewed it and did for the 24 episodes like you did previous season, maybe you would have kept your star.
