24: Legacy, the new Fox series that reboots the 24 franchise, will premiere on Sunday, February 5, after the network’s broadcast of Super Bowl LI. This is only the third Fox drama series to air after the big game since the network joined Super Bowl rotation in 1997 — the others were The X-Files and House — and the first drama to make its debut after the Super Bowl.
24: Legacy will launch with a two-night premiere. Monday, February 6 at 8 PM, the night after the Super Bowl, will mark 24: Legacy’s return to the night where the original series aired for most of its run (but at a different time, 9 PM).
The series chronicles a race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the original’s signature real-time format but in 12 episodes, half that of the original. Starring Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits, 24: Legacy is executive produced by the original series’ Howard Gordon, Brian Grazer, Manny Coto and Evan Katz; director Stephen Hopkins; and 24 star Kiefer Sutherland.
