Fox Orders New 24 Series Pilot Without Jack Bauer

"Live Another Day, Disappear the Next"

24 will live on, but without Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer.

Fox has ordered a pilot for 24: Legacy, an ongoing series featuring an entirely new cast of characters. Howard Gordon, Manny Coto, Evan Katz, and Brian Grazer will executive produce the project, with Stephen Hopkins, director of the original 24 pilot, set to direct the pilot episode.

Cast - 24: Live Another Day
No former members of the Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) are expected to have an ongoing presence in the series, which means we won’t be seeing any more of fan-favorite Kate Morgan (played by Yvonne Strahovski in 24: Live Another Day). (Image via Collider.)

The new 24 series will center on “a military hero’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask the CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.” The main character will be a man named Eric Carter, who was conceived as being a “diverse lead,” according to Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden. Meanwhile, the female lead is a former head of the CTU. 

Like the original series, 24: Legacy will occur in real-time, with each episode representing one hour of the day.
