24: Legacy (Reboot)

while Fox is creating sequel seasons for X-Files and Prison Break they have a different idea in mind for 24. Kiefer won't be returning but a new lead, new characters will reboot this series. the lead will be black, but I hope hey choose someone well known or at least with screen presence like say Michael Jai White or something.

when this fails and it probably will fail, they will most likely try again and bring back Jack.

Fox’s “24” is returning – – without it’s signature star.

Hopping on the ever-popular reboot train (particularly trendy at Fox, who kick of their “X-Files” redo in a couple of weeks and are prepping a continuation of “Prison Break”), the net is modeling a sequel series to the Kiefer Sutherland hit.

“24 : Legacy” will focus on an Arican-American lead, a military hero, Eric Carter.

“There’s also a female co-lead who is a former head of CTU”, Fox Television Chairman and CEO Dana Walden revealed. “It doesn’t feel like it is fully replicating the original in terms of how much Jack Bauer carried by himself, but it’s a very prominently featured lead.”

“It’s a new CTU, a new cast of characters. It’s a completely different story in terms of the special ops groups that we’re focusing on. It’s a very contemporary-feeling story about the potential to activate new sleeper cells in the United States and radicalizing Americans. It’s a whole new story. There are nods in the pilot to prior CTU agents, there are a couple photos that will feel reminiscent of the original, but no ongoing [returning] characters.”

While Sutherland likely won’t be involved in the new series (he has a new show over at, in which he plays POTUS), original “24” alumni Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer, Manny Coto and Evan Katz will serve as executive producers on the new project.

Filming this winter, “24 : Legacy” will feature, according to the presser, an “all-new cast of characters and retain the real-time, pulse-pounding, fast-paced format with split screens and complex interweaving storylines, with each episode representing one hour of an eventful day.”

“The project will revolve around a military hero’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.”

Originally premiering on November 6, 2001, “24” was nominated for a total of 73 Emmy Awards, winning for Outstanding Drama Series in 2006. Over eight seasons, Kiefer Sutherland garnered seven Emmy Award nominations and one win for Outstanding Lead Actor – Drama Series. While the series gained global recognition, Sutherland’s portrayal of the legendary character penetrated the American psyche like no other dramatic television character to become part of the cultural lexicon.

The most recent chapter in the franchise, “24: Live Another Day,” was a 12-episode event series that premiered in the summer of 2014 on FOX, reuniting series stars Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver and William Devane. The series was both a critical and ratings hit, garnering three Emmy Awards.

who knows how this will end up but won't be as classic or memorable at the original.

they have found their new lead -

24: Legacy casts the next ‘Jack Bauer’

FOX has cast Straight Outta Compton actor Corey Hawkins for the lead role in 24: Legacy, the pilot reboot of 24.

Hawkins, who stars as Dr. Dre in the 2015 hip hop film, will play ‘Eric Carter’, the central character replacing Kiefer Sutherland’s ‘Jack Bauer.’

The new version is helmed by original 24 producers Howard Gordon, Manny Coto, Evan Katz and Brian Grazer, but opts for a new universe within CTU. 24: Legacy will revolve around a military hero’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back — compelling him to ask the CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

Described as strong and smart, Eric came from a very rough background and turned his life around in the Army Rangers. Now back home in Virginia with his wife Nicole (yet to be cast), he’s pulled back into action as his past comes looking for him.

Variety notes Hawkins has been the star of choice for quite some time, but his deal just now closed.

Kiefer Sutherland is not expected to return.

So far only a pilot has been ordered, but the tip is a 13 part series.

what do you all think of the choice, I suppose it's ok. I expect they'll see how this goes with fans of 24 and perhaps Jack and the newbie could team up for the next series? ... bauer.html

Airdate: 24: Legacy

TEN has confirmed 24: Legacy will premiere on the first day of 2017 ratings, Sunday February 12th.

The rebooted series stars Corey Hawkins as Sergeant Eric Carter replacing Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer, plus Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits.

It retains the same real-time format in a race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on US soil.

But die-hard fans will have to wait nearly a week after its US debut on February 6 (Australian time). Last year TEN held back the launch of the rebooted The X-Files by 6 days to considerable social media criticism.

Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of US Army Rangers led by Sergeant Carter killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared they would seek revenge on Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protec­tion. But a recent attempt on Carter’s life makes it clear to him that his identity has been exposed.

To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Intelligence Officer Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), who has stepped down from her post to support her husband, Senator John Donovan (Jimmy Smits), who is running for President. Together, Carter and Ingram uncover a sophisticated network that will force them to ask “Who can we trust?” as they battle the terrorists.

Sunday, 12 February at 8.30pm on TEN. ... egacy.html

doesn't surprise me, no Kiefer, no 24. simple as that, I have taped it but have yet to check it out.

they are planning a theatrical movie at some point, would much rather that.

Sutherland said he doesn't want to do another 24 series anyway.
