LATEST TV: 24: Legacy gets 12 episode order from FOX


A 24 show without Jack Bauer is unthinkable but that is exactly what FOX are planning as they have officially given the go ahead for its spin off 24:Legacy to have a 12 episode run.

“24: Legacy centres on military hero Eric Carter (Hawkins) whose trouble follows him back to the U.S. – compelling him to ask CTU for help. The show chronicles an adrenaline-fuelled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the real-time format that the original series became famous for.”

Sounds a bit like the 24 of the past, but FOX are quietly confident that the new show will bring in fans of old and new.

24: Legacy stars Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits and while Kiefer Sutherland has decided to opt out of this particular bad day, he is staying on as an Executive Producer.

The original 24 was given a 12 episode run, but due to its popularity was stretched then to the full 24 episodes, which resulted in the famous “There is another shooter!” dumb plot.  Here is hoping Legacy has plans beyond its original twelve episodes, if it becomes a success.

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
