It's a new 24-hour day. There's a new elaborate terrorist plot aimed at wreaking havoc on America. And U.S. Army Ranger Eric Carter (Straight Outta Compton's Corey Hawkins) is our new hero. And as Jack Bauer, had done countless times, Carter must survive long enough to uncover the truth and eliminate the threat.
However, the biggest surprise in this new "24: Legacy" trailer has to be the sight of an old beloved "24" character. Behold the first peek at former CTU agent turned captured villain Tony Almeida (once again played by Carlos Bernard), who will be making his long-awaited return in the upcoming next installment of the ticking-clock action series.
"24: Legacy" also stars Miranda Otto, Jimmy Smits, and Teddy Sears. It's due to premiere on Sunday, February 5th, right after the Super Bowl.
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 fatwah 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 is now exposed.
To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists REBECCA INGRAM (Miranda Otto), who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. She's a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of CTU to support her husband, SENATOR JOHN DONOVAN (Jimmy Smits), in his campaign for President of the United States. Decades of sleepless nights and missed anniversaries landed her at the top. With the White House within their grasp, can she truly embrace a new role as First Lady? Or will her love of the action draw her back in?
Together, in this fast-paced thrill ride, Carter and Ingram uncover a sophisticated terrorist network that will force them to ask: "Who can we trust?" As they battle Bin-Khalid's devotees, they are forced to confront their own identities, families and pasts.
