Kiefer Sutherland tweets support for 24: Legacy
Fox’s new show 24: Legacy is airing in the post-Super Bowl slot, and Kiefer Sutherland, for one, will be tuning in.
The reboot of the real-time thriller 24, which starred Sutherland as counter-terrorism agent Jack Bauer, follows war hero Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins) as he is hunted as part of a vengeance scheme that unfolds over the course of one long day. Miranda Otto (Homeland) also stars as Rebecca Ingram, the head of a revived Counter Terrorist Unit.
Before the new show aired Sunday night, Sutherland tweeted his support for the series. “To the cast and crew of @24fox,” he wrote, “break a leg tonight.”
The premiere episode of 24: Legacy will serve as the lead-out program for Super Bowl LI before moving to its regular time slot of 8 p.m. ET on Mondays.
