The potential new series, titled 24: Legacy, will tell the story of a military hero who returns to the U.S. with a whole lot trouble following him back. With nowhere else to turn, the man asks CTU to help him save his life while also stopping one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
Like its predecessor, the series, once again executive-produced by Howard Gordon, Manny Coto and Evan Katz, will “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,” Fox says. The pilot is expected to shoot this winter, but no casting has yet been announced.
