For years its been threatened, but now we finally have a Jack Bauer free 24. Fans never asked for this, it was always the Producers and Kiefer Southernland’s goal/dream to be able to continue 24 without him having to be involved – on camera. I would imagine it’s a pretty intense role to play. So, Kiefer’s desire to get out is understandable. So now we have another attempt to revive 24 with 24 Legacy. Only we don’t get 24 hours to save the world, it’s only 12. 24: Legacy premieres Sunday, February 5th after the Superbowl and will air Monday nights.
It’s a glorious new day – except for U.S. Army Ranger Sergeant Eric Carter. His unit killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. But a recent attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear to him that his team has been exposed.
Now Carter is in for the worst day of his life – and the whole world will be watching as FOX Networks Group launches 24: Legacy in 160 countries around the globe following the series launch on February 5, 2017 on FOX.
