Who’s coming back for 24: Legacy? Recently, EP Evan Katz revealed new details about the upcoming FOX spin-off series, Digital Spy reports.
The action drama stars Corey Hawkins as Eric Carter, a soldier who comes back from the Middle East only to find himself preventing a terrorist attack on U.S. soil. The series also stars Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Katz said the new series will take place three years after 24: Live Another Day and feature time jumps in order to fit the series’ 12-episode format. Additionally, he did confirm that Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) will be gone … at least for now. But there will be a returning 24 character:
There is, we believe, somebody coming back who is gonna make you happy, a little bit into the run. We haven’t announced it, but it’ll be great, it’ll make people smile.”
24: Legacy is set to premiere in early 2017.
