It remains unlikely that Jack Bauer will lever hand off the 24: Legacy in person, but the new FOX reboot is nonetheless trotting out some very familiar faces. See Tony Almeida’s return in a fresh trailer for 24: Legacy, ahead of its post-Super Bowl premiere.
From the World Series to the Super Bowl, FOX’s 24: Legacy is going to make time fly. A new trailer for the action icon’s next iteration debuted during Tuesday’s baseball tee-off, promising a new day and all the explosions therein for 24: Legacy’s Super Bowl premiere.
FOX has made reasonably adamant that next year’s 24: Legacy would serve to carry on the spirit of the franchise moreso than its characters, something Kiefer Sutherland aggressively seems to corroborate. That said, producers might have in mind to return at least Mary Lynn Rajskub’s Chloe before long.
The very existence of FOX’s upcoming 24: Legacy serves as reminder that Jack Bauer’s time has passed, producers even having entertained the thought of killing off their beleaguered hero in 2014 revival Live Another Day. That said, it seems Kiefer Sutherland himself led the charge in killing off Jack, casting serious doubt the actor would ever agree to reprise the role.
Kiefer Sutherland made reasonably clear that 24 was behind him after FOX event series Live Another Day, a fact supported both by the franchise’s next Jack Bauer-free Legacy, and Sutherland’s own upcoming ABC drama. Now, producer Howard Gordon weights if they should have killed Jack Bauer off altogether, and what it might mean for a Legacy appearance.
Boy, did you think a Prison Break revival trailer all FOX had to offer at the chaos of 2016 Upfronts? Carve out some time and pull up a chair, as brand trailers arrive for everything from 24: Legacy, to The Exorcist, Lethal Weapon, new Lord and Miller comedies and even Laverne Cox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show.
It’s that magical, terrifying time of year when series orders and cancellations go out; the new additions releasing their first photos and trailers. So it was with FOX yesterday, and now our first looks at 24 continuation 24: Legacy have arrived, along with movie reboots The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon.
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.
