24: LEGACY Preview: First Look at Fox’s New Action Series

24 legacy

24 is back on Fox for the 2016-2017, albeit with a bit of a twist this time. While Jack Bauer won’t be saving the world one hour at a time in 24: LEGACY, we’ll see all new heroes step up to stop a devastating terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

Six months before the show begins, a squad of U.S. Army Rangers — led by Sergeant Eric Carter — killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid in Yemen. After the death, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. After a recent attempt on Carter’s life, he realizes that his team is now exposed.

In order to stop more attacks, Carter seeks out Rebecca Ingram, a brilliant intelligence officer who helped lead the raid. She’s since stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU in order to support her husband’s, Senator John Donovan, run for President. Carter and Ingram soon uncover a  “sophisticated terrorist network that will force them to ask: “Who can we trust?'”.
