Corey Hawkins Become a Hero in ’24: Legacy’ Trailer

Fox is gearing up to roll out its reboot of the popular drama 24, but this time the series has a new hero: Straight Outta Compton star Corey Hawkins.

In 24: Legacy, Hawkins plays Eric Carter, one of the youngest sergeants to ever lead an elite group of Army Rangers tasked with the most classified missions. After killing a high profile terrorist leader, Carter and his fellow rangers and their families become a target.

Here’s how Fox breaks down the show:

24: LEGACY chronicles 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. Six months ago in Yemen, an elite squad of U.S. Army Rangers, led by Sergeant ERIC CARTER (Corey Hawkins, “Straight Outta Compton”), 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 a recent attempt on Carter’s own life makes it clear to him that his team is now exposed.

24: Legacy will premiere during a two-day night event beginning after the Super Bowl on Sunday February 5 (10 p.m. EST) and Monday February 6 (8 p.m.).
