"Legacy", but franchise could live on

Share

Fox is said to be in discussion with the show's producers, Howard Gordon and Brian Grazer, who are reported to, "be very involved - for a new anthological take on the franchise". The network and studio are eying turning 24 into an anthology format.

Legacy wrapped its 12th and final episode with 6.3 million viewers.

Meanwhile Sutherland, who was an executive producer on Legacy, will return this fall in Designated Survivor which was picked up for a second season. Unfortunately, "24: Legacy" will no longer be back for Season 2.

It premiered with prime post-Super Bowl slot in February, with an average of 17.6 million viewers. After which, "24: Legacy" was released and was built around an entirely different story.

A THR states that producer Howard Gordon flew to the USA with a pitch in an effort to save the series, but nothing materialised. This new reboot doesn't yet have a series order let alone a creative team, but it sounds like there's interest on the side of Fox to keep this franchise alive no matter what. After its eighth season, the show beat out Mission: Impossible and The Avengers as the longest-running US espionage/counterterrorism-themed television drama in history. "I could say pretty confidently that it would probably be Eric Carter as a CTU agent, and my guess is it would be in a place that's not necessarily the US", he said.

Set in Washington D.C. three years after the events of 24: Live Another Day, Legacy introduced viewers to Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins - Straight Outta' Compton), ex-Army Ranger who returns to the USA only to find himself running for his life from the dangers that followed him home from his covert mission overseas.
