The clock ticks again with 24: Legacy, the next evolution of the Emmy Award-winning series 24, available now on Digital and arriving on DVD November 14th, from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
The 12 episode series chronicles an adrenaline-fueled race against time to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series.
Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a threat against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. But a recent attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear to him that his team has been exposed.
To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), who directed the raid that killed Bin-Khalid; a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) to support her husband, Senator John Donovan (Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jimmy Smits), in his campaign for President of the United States.
The series also stars Teddy Sears (The Flash, Masters of Sex) as Keith Mullins, head of CTU; Emmy Award winner Dan Bucatinsky (Scandal, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life) as Andy Shalowitz, communications analyst at CTU; Anna Diop (Quantico, Greenleaf) as Nicole Carter, the wife of Eric Carter and nurse; Ashley Thomas (The Night Of, Black Mirror) as Eric’s older brother Isaac Carter; Charlie Hofheimer (Off Season, Mad Men) as Ben Grimes who suffers from PTSD after being in the army and Eric’s old comrade in arms; Coral Peña (Blue Bloods) as computer analyst Mariana Stiles; Emmy Award winner Gerald McRaney (This Is Us, House of Cards, Deadwood) as Henry Donovan, a powerful man in the oil industry who is dedicated to helping his son John Donovan win the presidential election; Raphael Acloque (Burnt, The Danish Girl) as Jadalla Bin-Khalid who has continued his father’s jihadist campaign; and Sheila Vand (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Argo) as Nilaa Mizrani, campaign manager to presidential hopeful, John Donovan. Carlos Bernard (Hawaii Five-0, Castle) also guest stars in a recurring role, reprising his original series character, Tony Almeida.
24: Legacy is created by Manny Coto (24, 24: Live Another Day) and Evan Katz (24, 24: Live Another Day), based on the television series 24, created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran.
