After finally putting Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer out to pasture, Fox is looking to reboot the 24 franchise with the new series Legacy. We caught up with the cast and crew to talk about the challenges, and opportunities, with a project like this.

Producers Evan Katz and Manny Coto talked to us at New York Comic Con about the challenge of keeping the concept — spy vs. terrorists — fresh after nearly a decade of seeing Jack Bauer get into crazier and crazier situations. They noted the real world serves as a compelling backdrop for this season, as old threats mutate into new challenges.

Star Corey Hawkins, who is filling Kiefer Sutherland’s void as the focus of the series, opened up about his decision to take on the project and how his character is different from what’s come before. Co-stars Jimmy Smits and Miranda Otto tackle what fans can expect this season, and it sounds like a bit of the new and a bit of the old.
