24: Legacy: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

24: Legacy: Season 1 (2017)



Critic Consensus: 24: Legacy offers well-acted escapism, yet this reboot also inherits many of its predecessor's flaws, and an early narrative rut signals a missed opportunity for reinvention.

Tv Season Info

Taking place three years after the events of the final season of "24," this spin-off introduces a brand-new cast and features the return of the real-time storytelling technique that made the original series unique. Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins) is a former Army Ranger who led a mission to eliminate Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid, a dangerous terrorist. Upon returning to the U.S., Eric finds out he's being targeted by Bin-Khalid's terrorist organization, so he seeks the help of CTU to protect him and his family. Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), former CTU director and wife to Senator John Donovan (Jimmy Smits), is Eric's main and possibly only ally, considering an underground terrorist network with ties to the American political world make trusting other members of the counter-terrorist unit very dangerous. The first season centers around a race against the clock to stop a terrorist attack in the United States, and sees the return of some familiar faces.

Critic Reviews for 24: Legacy: Season 1

All Critics (55) | Top Critics (22)

Hawkins is so far looking like a very credible and in fact rather more athletic hero, energetically communicating the urgency of the situation without careering into melodrama.

Fox's real-time thriller 24 is back without Jack Bauer, but with a compelling new combatant in the war against terror in former Army Ranger Eric Gardner (Corey Hawkins from Straight Outta Compton).

February 9, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

These days, it's hard to be too certain about anything, but 24 is reassuringly still the series it always has been.

February 6, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Hawkins is capable enough as the series' new man of action, but the whole enterprise seems pretty played out at this point.

Maybe this isn't the time for stereotypes and gunfire. The original 24 came along at precisely the right time, in late 2001. Maybe this 24 should try again later.

February 3, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The new 24 benefits greatly from three veteran actors: Miranda Otto ("Homeland") as a risk-taking intelligence officer, Jimmy Smits as her politician husband and Gerald McRaney as the politician's affluent father.
