According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series has received a twelve episode order, echoing the original show’s initial planned run. While its predecessor’s first season ultimately expanded to twenty-four episodes, it remains to be seen if Legacy will need the extra hours.
The series will star Corey Hawkins as Eric Carter, a returning war hero who gets drawn into the world of counterterrorism. As the CTU responds to save his life, they learn of a possible large-scale attack on the US. Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits are also set to star.
