Premieres: Sunday, Feb. 5 after the Super Bowl; moves to Mondays at 8/7c on Feb. 6
24 gets the reboot treatment and gives us Jack Bauer 2.0: Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), a decorated war hero who quickly becomes the target of a terrorist group seeking information he brought back with him from the battlefield. "When 24 started, Jack Bauer had seen a lot of highway, and was the head of CTU and had a lot of damage in his life and his relationships," says executive producer Evan Katz, who was also an EP on the original series. "Eric Carter's a newbie. He's not an agent. He's not even a soldier anymore. And I think is very idealistic and is not quite sure where he fits in the world. ... [24: Legacy] is really about this young man who doesn't know quite what to do with himself after the war. And this season, he kind of finds out." The series also stars Miranda Otto as Rebecca Ingram, the outgoing head of CTU; Teddy Sears as her replacement; and Jimmy Smits as her husband, a senator who is launching a presidential campaign.
