Airdate: 24: Legacy
Rebooted 24 will premiere on the first day of 2017 ratings, Sunday February 12th.
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.
