24: Legacy has been cancelled after one season

Fox has cancelled 24: Legacy after just one season, so reports Variety. The action TV series, a spin-off from the original run that starred Kiefer Sutherland, was led by Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins but failed to strike a chord with audiences.

20th Century Fox Television are looking at future iterations of 24, so says the trade, possibly looking at an anthology format based on the original series that aired from 2001-2010.

The 13 episode series of 24: Legacy, which will hit the home formats in the UK very soon, chronicles an adrenaline-fuelled race against time to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series.

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 threat 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 has been exposed.

To thwart further attacks, Carter enlists Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto), who directed the raid that killed Bin-Khalid; a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) to support her husband, Senator John Donovan (Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award winner Jimmy Smits), in his campaign for President of the United States.
