24 Legacy

24: Legacy is an American television series created by Manny Coto and Evan Katz for the Fox network. The series is a spin-off of 24 which was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran. It premiered on February 5, 2017, serving as the lead-out program for Super Bowl.

Consisting of 12 episodes, the show follows the life of war hero Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins) using real time method of narration. Miranda Otto plays Rebecca Ingram, the former head of the now revived Counter Terrorist Unit in Washington, D.C. Set three years after the events of 24: Live Another Day, it adheres to the real time concept of covering the events of a 24-hour period and begins and ends at 12:00 p.m. However, like its predecessor, there is a 12-hour time jump within the final episode.

First, it’s good to see Miranda Otto since her Eowyn days. Unfortunately the show doesn’t match its predecessors. This is only 12 episodes and feels like half the story. Because of this there are less twists and improbable turns. So allover less satisfying than previous series.
