Update: January 15, 2016 Fox Orders 24: LEGACY Spinoff Pilot with a New Male Lead Fox has ordered a pilot for a new 24 series. The new iteration of 24 won't likely look too much like the event series or the original. The behind-the-scenes team, however, has a lot of familiar faces. Howard Gordon, Manny Coto and Evan Katz are all back on board as executive producers. Sources tell THR that the new incarnation of 24, dubbed 24: Legacy, will not feature any returning cast. Insiders say the network is looking to make the reboot diverse, with its lead character said to be an African-American guy in his 20s. Gary Newman confirmed to reporters after Fox's Television Critics Association press session that the role would indeed be diverse as the network is looking to make the role as "different from Jack Bauer as possible." The project will revolve around said lead, a military hero recently returned to the U.S. — and the trouble that follows him back. He teams up with the original series' CTU agency to help save his life and — you guessed it — stop a large-scale terror attack on American soil.
