While the cast is new, the show’s original producer/writer team of Howard Gordon, Evan Katz and Manny Coto will be back. We weren’t sure how to feel about that but the first trailer from FOX for the new season, 24: Legacy, looks very promising indeed. Its two-night premiere continues February 6, when it settles into its Monday 8 PM time slot.
Corey Hawkins from Straight Outta Compton stars in this reboot of the 24 franchise, which follows a former elite Army Ranger (Hawkins) who races to stop a terrorist attack now that he’s back on USA soil. To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto, “Homeland“), who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. She’s a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU to support her husband, Senator John Donovan (Emmy and Golden Globe Award victor Jimmy Smits, “NYPD Blue”, “The West Wing”), in his campaign for President of the United States.
