The clock is ticking down, with “24: LEGACY’s” season finale episode representing the hour from 11 PM to midnight. When Rebecca’s (Miranda Otto) efforts go awry, will Carter (Corey Hawkins) save the day? This season of the series has chronicled an adrenaline-fueled race against the clock to stop a devastating terrorist attack on United States soil – in the same real-time format that has propelled this genre-defining series.
Previously in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant Eric Carter, killed terrorist leader Sheik Ibrahim Bin-Khalid. In the aftermath, Bin-Khalid’s followers declared a fatwah against Carter, his squad and their families, forcing them into federal witness protection. But an attempt on Carter’s own life made it clear to him that his team has been exposed.
To thwart further attacks, Carter enlisted Rebecca Ingrim, who quarterbacked the raid that killed Bin-Khalid. She’s a brilliant and ambitious intelligence officer who has stepped down from her post as National Director of 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. Decades of sleepless nights and missed anniversaries landed her at the top. With the White House within their grasp, can she truly embrace a new role as First Lady? Or will her love of the action draw her back in?
Together, in this fast-paced thrill ride, Carter and Ingram uncovered a sophisticated terrorist network which forced them to ask: “Who can we trust?” As they battle Bin-Khalid’s devotees, they have been forced to confront their own identities, families and pasts.
The series also stars Teddy Sears, Emmy Award winner Dan Bucatinsky, Anna Diop, Ashley Thomas, Charlie Hofheimer, Coral Peña, Gerald McRaney, Raphael Acloque and Sheila Vand. Additionally, Carlos Bernard will guest-star in a recurring role, reprising his original series character, Tony Almeida.
