‘24: Legacy’
Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins) and the rest of the cast of “24: Legacy” will no longer return to Season 2 after FOX canceled the series. FOX

FOX has decided to cancel “24: Legacy” after one season due to its low ratings. However, this does not mean that the network will no longer be developing a new show in the “24” franchise.

According to TV Line, the keystone franchise is important to FOX so discussions for a new reboot are currently taking place. Producers Howard Gordon and Brian Grazer are in discussions to develop a new incarnation that is more anthological. However, none of the characters featured in “24: Legacy” will be involved.

“24: Legacy” drew in a massive 17.5 million viewers during its premiere. However, the series quickly lost steam after the Super Bowl wrapped up. In April, the number of viewers for the series dropped to 3.4 million and a series low demo rating of 0.8.

The reboot for the original “24” was also set in the same universe, but it was set out to be very different from its predecessor. Executive producers Manny Coto and Evan Katz even teamed up with Tony Almeida for the project. Unfortunately, “24: Legacy” will no longer be back for Season 2.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “24” aired on FOX for eight seasons before being revived with original star Kiefer Sutherland for “24: Live Another Day.” After the series wrapped, “24: Legacy” was released and was built around an entirely different story.

A source told the publication that producer Gordon flew back to the United States in April and May to have a conversation with the people from FOX. Gordon said that he wanted to revive “24,” and he also pitched a possible storyline to help save “24: Legacy.” Unfortunately, it seems that FOX only agreed to work with Gordon on the revival of “24.”

Coto spoke with the same publication to say that FOX indeed wanted the series to receive higher ratings. “There are ideas for a second season that we’ve floated around. We all know where we want to take the next season. I could say pretty confidently that it would probably be Eric Carter as a CTU agent, and my guess is it would be in a place that’s not necessarily the U.S.,” he said.
