As with Prison Break, FOX has cancelled 24: Legacy after one season. However, given the show’s ‘event series’ format, the network hasn’t ruled out a franchise revival in years to come.
FOX chief Dana Walden said:
“Legacy, we were so happy with the creative on that show, we think Corey Hawkins did a great job. As you probably know Corey is on Broadway right now with Six Degrees of Separation … his schedule wouldn’t allow us to consider the show for the fall … it’s another show to talk about.”
Sources inform RenewCancelTV that the network hasn’t given up hope of one day resurrecting 24 as anthology series, featuring new storylines and characters each season, with producers Howard Gordon and Brian Grazer said to be behind the new take on the franchise.
The clock may yet restart on 24 in future seasons, but time is officially up for Legacy.
this show needs to “time out”
casting was bad. the lead was just too young looking. he didn’t have the presence needed. smits/mccraney was beyond ridiculous.
…100% on casting except for couple exceptions, a pretty good show…all things considered….unfortunately lead dude just wasn’t happening…..simply never worked, huge disappointment….his spouse/that relationship took way too much time…dreadful…..if Tony had been the “dude” we are not talking about 24 being cancelled….just a d*** shame….great show like 24….come on get this fixed….
The people that even thought of trying this should not even be employed by FOX.

Please, please, please do not cancel!!!!! Was so excited this show was coming back!!!! It wasn’t Jack, but it was still good!!!!!!! Please reconsider!!!,
We would definitely watch a season two
I love the show! True lovers as myself of 24 knew this wasn’t going to be exactly the same as the original 24, but it’s a great show with great actors
I hope Fox is learning that reviving long dead shows is NOT a good path to take.
My hubby and I loved the show. We didn’t expect it to be the same as the original. Please bring it back….
Also agree that I didn’t expect it to be the same without Jack, but it was still a good show and I definitely want more of it, preferably with MUCH MORE TONY!
My husband and I love this show! We were so happy to see that it was returning and thoroughly enjoyed it. We knew that it would be different without Jack Bauer, but it was still a great show! Please, Fox, don’t cancel this as it’s one of the best on TV!!

I very much enjoyed this reboot and would/will watch all upcoming seasons. I thought Tony was excellent! He’s killing it on Broadway!
Please reconsider. Maybe a bigger paycheck would bring him back?!

Only the theme tune really resembled “24”. The star …. at times he looked lost as to what to do …. he just seemed like an ordinary person opposed to the great all fighting macho hero we have come to expect with “24”. Now take the new series “Taken!” … that is more like how “24” should be, including the hero.
Okay I did enjoy the show, as long as I didn’t remind myself it was called 24. Wish you could bring 24 b ack as it used to be – well almost ….., but of course Jack could not be in it ….. but a character like him … and CTU as it used to be .. i.e. familiar territory …. just with a new hero and new other cast members …. be good if some of the old cast could come back. Was great to see Tony … he made it 24 without a doubt.
Maby because it was also only 12 episodes and so the plot could not have the twists and turns a 24 episoder would ….. I don’t know, I just know it did not have me on the edge of my seat like the old ones did ……
After reviving and killing Prison Break now they have revived and killed 24. I enjoyed the show even if it couldn’t match the original . There were some good performances in there.
the show failed because Jack was off doing another big show
According to Fox’s press release, “As you probably know Corey is on Broadway right now with Six Degrees of Separation … his schedule wouldn’t allow us to consider the show for the fall ”
It sounds like they want to bring it back (its ratings were the second highest on FOX this Spring) but scheduling made it a one time thing for the lead actor. If he comes back later it may come back at another time.
This show really SUCKED
