Kiefer Sutherland has made abundantly clear his intent to leave 24 breakout Jack Bauer behind, but FOX can’t say the same of its onetime flagship franchise. Spinoff-reboot 24: Legacy has officially been ordered to series with Walking Dead star Corey Hawkins in the lead, while Sutherland has agreed to executive produce.

Earlier this week saw FOX taking a major leap forward on its proposed 24 continuation 24: Legacy, casting The Walking Dead and Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins in a new leading role. Now, meet the series’ female counterpart, as Lord of the Rings alum Miranda Otto jumps from Homeland to 24 for a very familiar role.

24 already had its X-Files revival moment with 24: Live Another Day, and FOX seems about ready to start a whole new chapter with 24: Legacy. As such, our new Jack Bauer has already arrived, as Straight Outta Compton and The Walking Dead star Corey Hawkins takes the lead role of the new series.

A ways back, we’d heard that FOX had an eye toward another 24 revival, albeit without Kiefer Sutherland’s famous Jack Bauer at the helm. Consider that officially come to pass, as FOX orders a pilot for 24: Legacy, casting new leads with little chance of returning any of the past 24 favorites.

Aside from its current revival fervor, FOX hasn’t yet placed an official order for more 24, particularly after news that Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer wouldn’t take part. New 24 may prove even less familiar to fans however, eschewing any known characters for a “total reset.”

Revival-happy though TV has become, the middling success of 24: Live Another Day has cooled interest in an immediate followup, the latest rumors suggesting FOX might revive the franchise with a new male lead. That seems to be the case now, as Kiefer Sutherland says he wouldn’t return for another full-time 24 gig.

FOX’s 24 revival Live Another Day certainly did well enough to kickstart similar returns from The X-Files and Heroes Reborn (Zzz…), but hasn’t quite pushed the network to commit to a second round with Jack Bauer. In fact, they may not have to, as FOX has begun developing a new spinoff without Kiefer Sutherland at the helm.

It's hard to believe that only a scant year or two ago, '24' fans continually had to wonder if Jack Bauer would ever return for the long-awaited movie rendition of Kiefer Sutherland's growling counter-terrorism agent. We've since seen Jack's grand return 'Live Another Day' on FOX, but has the rebooted series finally gotten the ball rolling on a movie development, or merely another round of TV?
