The action drama stars Corey Hawkins as Eric Carter, an Army Ranger who becomes the target of a terrorist organization. The cast also includes Miranda Otto, Jimmy Smits, Teddy Sears, Dan Bucatinsky, Anna Diop, Ashley Thomas, Charlie Hofheimer, Coral Pena, and Sheila Vand.
During a recent conference, Walden said she was disappointed with the ratings for 24: Legacy so far:
I’m a little sad because I feel like it’s a really good show. We’re doing about 7-8 million viewers over seven days per episode. It’s not terrible. We had really high hopes for the show. Perhaps our launch strategy was a little over-ambitious.”
Only five episodes in, the show’s first season is averaging a 2.17 rating in the 18-49 demo and 7.470 million viewers. While decent, the ratings are way down from the series’ premiere, which aired right after the Super Bowl and earned a 6.10 in the 18-49 demo and 17.576 million viewers.
Walden said FOX will see how the show performs and reassess its season two chances in May:
We’re going to see. I would love nothing more than to bring it back because I thought it was great but we’re just going to have to see how our pilots come in, how it continues to perform and weigh all of the information we have in May.”
What do you think? Are you watching 24: Legacy? Do you want a second season?
