Cobra Kai (YouTube Red)

61 TV Reboots & Revivals by Tomatometer

When The X-Files returned to Fox in January 2016, fans were apprehensive. Would the revival hold up over time? Could it make up for the original iteration’s lackluster ninth season?

Luckily, they had nothing to worry about. Season 10 received a Fresh 65% Tomatometer score as well as stellar ratings, and season 11 was Certified Fresh with a 79% Tomatometer score.

Alas, not all reboots and revivals are created equal. While NBC’s season 9 revival of Will & Grace is Certified Fresh at 86% on the Tomatometer, the CW’s new take on Dynasty fell flat with a 53% Tomatometer score.

On the flip side, some titles like streaming series Cobra Kai, a sequel to the famous Karate Kid films, become big hits. The YouTube Red show premiered May 2 and has maintained a 100% score to land in the top spot of our scorecard of shows based on previous titles that returned from the dead.

ABC’s Roseanne and American Idol revivals also recently joined our list.  Find out how all of the titles fared in their first new season (or TV-movie revival!) by Tomatometer.

Corey Hawkins stars in 24: Legacy (Fox)
24 is back on Fox with 24: Legacy, and while it’s definitely sad not to hear Kiefer Sutherland growl “dammit” at least three times an hour, after two episodes, it looks as though star Corey Hawkins and his team of good guys and bad guys are more than enough to make up for Jack and Co.’s absence.

If you’re new to the 24 franchise — or if you were only a casual viewer back in the day — here’s a quick guide on what you need to know now that we’ve established this season’s storylines.


Place your bets on the mole

Dan Bucatinsky in 24: Legacy (Fox)

Every season has a mole — sometimes multiple moles — in the form of someone working for CTU, someone working for the president or even, in an epic twist, the president himself.

Season 1’s Nina Meyers (Sarah Clarke) is the OG mole and the aforementioned President Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin) from season 5 is another classic, but every season has someone who managed to climb to an extraordinarily high level of clearance, power or influence working for the terrorists.

In Legacy, a few likely candidates have already emerged. Mariana Stiles (Coral Peña) is being made to appear overly meddlesome and nosey so far, while Nilaa Mizrani (Sheila Vand), campaign manager to John Donovan (Jimmy Smits) is the one whose computer accessed the new identities of the Army Rangers responsible for the raid that killed this universe’s version of Osama bin Laden, Ibrahim bin-Khalid.

However, since we’re only two hours into the 24 that will make up the season (via 12 episodes), both Mariana and Nilaa feel like red herrings.

Who do we think bears keeping a close eye on? Andy Shalowitz (Dan Bucatinsky), CTU’s communication analyst and confidant to former CTU director Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto). Not only is he a white male, which makes him less likely and therefore more suspicious, but he’s been jumpy from his first moment on screen and far too eager to go along with Rebecca’s plan, which involves Tasering his current boss and hacking into so many places he should not be hacking into. Plus, something went down between him and Agent Locke (Bailey Chase) that sounds ominous.


Aisha is the cougar

No, not the metaphorical cougar: an older woman cruising a younger man. She’s the actual cougar of this season — that is, the annoying subplot character that makes you constantly yell at the screen, “Why are you even here?”

Elisha Cuthbert in 24 (Fox)

Longtime fans will recall how in season 2, Jack’s then completely useless daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert) escaped police custody, ran off into the wilderness, encountered a cougar and then got herself caught in an animal trap.

In the history of 24 absurdity, this storyline has never been topped and Aisha (Tiffany Hines) probably will not be the one to do it. But we’re already sick of her meddling with Isaac’s (Ashley Thomas) business dealings over her seething jealousy of Nicole (Anna Diop). The plot has nothing to do with anything and is only there to give Eric something else to worry about, as if he doesn’t already have enough on his plate today.


Past shout-outs

Carlos Bernard in 24 (Fox)

It’s no spoiler that Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard), one of the last surviving original cast members of 24, is appearing this season. Details are scarce about how he is worked into the plot, but Tony played a big role in most of the past seasons.

He is Jack’s one-time close friend who ended up in federal prison for helping the Prion variant cabal in season 7 — though his true motive was not to commit crimes against the United States, but to kill the head of the cabal, Alan Wilson (Will Patton), who was responsible for killing Tony’s wife, Michelle (Reiko Aylesworth), another original 24 cast member.

Additionally, Mariana Stiles reveals in Legacy‘s premiere episode that she’s “Edgar Stiles’ cousin.” Edgar Stiles (Louis Lombardi) was a CTU intelligence analyst in seasons 4 and 5, and while it feels highly unlikely he would have taught his cousin much of anything since their age difference would have been significant, that’s a shout-out to a much-loved deceased character.

Here’s hoping Legacy finds a way to work in something related to Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub), another intelligence analyst and fan-favorite character from seasons 3-9.

24: Legacy airs Mondays at 8/7 C  on Fox

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Training Day falls short of recapturing the excellence of the film in its television incarnation -- and fails to distinguish itself from the current squad of tired police procedurals.

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: 24: Legacy offers well-acted escapism, yet this reboot also inherits many of its predecessor's flaws, and an early narrative rut signals a missed opportunity for reinvention.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: While Superior Donuts' talented cast impressively delivers, the annoying laugh track and stale jokes leave a hole in the middle of a crusty -- albeit topical -- narrative.

Powerless: Season 1 (2017)
61%

#1
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Powerless has a strong premise leaving room for improvement -- and strong performances from a talented cast -- but the show's initial spark is dimmed by uneven execution and a lack of laughs.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Santa Clarita Diet serves up an excellent cast, frequent laughs, and an engaging premise -- but the level of gore might not be to everyone's taste.

The 100: Season 4 (2017)

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Season 4 of The 100 rewards longtime viewers with a deeper look at their favorite characters, as well as adding exceptional nuance and depth to their thrilling circumstances.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Expanse's second season offers more of the show's excellent signature production values while increasing character development and politically thrilling narratives.

24: Legacy: Jimmy Smits (Mathieu Young/FOX)

On any given day of Fox’s original series 24, the president or a presidential candidate needed Jack Bauer’s help. So what are they going to do now that Jack isn’t around?

They’ll just have to count on the new guy, Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins) this time. After the Super Bowl, Fox launches a brand new day with 24: Legacy.

The series includes Jimmy Smits as John Donovan, a new candidate for president. Donovan happens to be married to former CTU Head Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto). His day gets complicated when Rebecca returns to CTU to help Carter evade killers who rooted out him and his Ranger team from hiding. Donovan’s campaign manager, Nilaa (Sheila Vand), has strong opinions about Rebecca, and within the first hour, Donovan warns Nilaa she’s overstepping when she talks smack about his wife. Gerald McRaney appears as Henry Donovan, the candidate’s father.

Smits spoke with Rotten Tomatoes recently about his role in the new series and about returning to the role of Bail Organa for 2016 blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which so successfully provided connective tissue between the Star Wars prequels and the original trilogy.

The Emmy– and Golden Globe–winning actor also talked about his role in The Get Down as Papa Fuerte, who supports  the musical ambitions of his niece Mylene (Herizen Guardiola). The Get Down returns to Netflix this year.

Fred Topel for Rotten Tomatoes: What is Henry Donovan like?

Jimmy Smits: Well, the relationship is going to be very complicated, which is what I love. What happens is that you start finding out that his love for his son — the older Donovan — his love for his son has possibly made him complicit in the events that have transpired in the first hour.

RT: He might be behind the attack on the Rangers?

Smits: We’ll see how complicit he is, but fingers start pointing towards him. The campaign starts going south a little bit. It hasn’t come out like that, but at one point we’re not sure.

RT: Is Henry Donovan directly involved in the presidential campaign?

Smits: He’s involved by the fact that he’s somebody of great wealth that has a lot of international connections because of his background in oil. And he’s been very active in trying to prop his son up to make this move.

RT: Was Henry Donovan a military man?

Smits: No, we haven’t been talking about that in terms of the backstory.

RT: Was Henry Donovan in politics himself?

Smits: No, he’s more an industrialist. We wanted that kind of Big Daddy relationship, you know, Tennessee Williams.


RT: Running for president is a big deal. John Donovan has accomplished a lot. Does he still have issues with his father?

Smits: Absolutely. There are many daddy issues because his dad’s very set in his ways in terms of the way he would like to see things done, to try to use his connections and his financial support to prop up the campaign.

RT: What issues is Donovan running on?

Smits: The show hasn’t been political in designating if he’s a Republican or Democrat or if he’s pro-life. That hasn’t come into being right now because what jump-starts the show is this terrorist attack. You start finding out that the politics in terms of gathering of information, his political bent is a lot different than his wife.

RT: Do we know Donovan’s opponent?

Smits: No, but you’ll find out. His name is Gage.


24: LEGACY: Jimmy Smits ( John P Fleenor/FOX)

RT: How has the pace of 24 been different from other shows you’ve worked on?

Smits: It’s been a little frenetic, but good. It’s kind of nice to be away in Atlanta a little bit, because we’re away from the bubble here. It keeps us focused in a different kind of way. I almost feel like sometimes when I’m on location, you miss your home and your family and all that stuff, but it keeps you focused on the work.

RT: Do you have to get your dialogue exactly right so that all the other storylines still make sense?

Smits: I worked on a show called West Wing before. I didn’t work with Aaron Sorkin, but he created the show and set the tenor of the show, which was you follow the words of the script perfectly, because there’s a dramaturgical thing behind it. That was the way that show operated: Speed was very much a part of the dynamic of working on that set every day.

The dynamic here is different because the genre’s a little bit different. You have this action component that West Wing didn’t have. West Wing was a show about politics. This is a show about geopolitical situations. I don’t want to say that they’re more lenient, because I’m an actor who was trained in the theater, so the script is the bible to me. So I try to be as exact as possible, but I want to try to illuminate the characters and what the author’s intentions are, so sometimes I’m not as exact just to help to clarify.


Jimmy Smits in ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY (Disney)

RT: There were reshoots to Rogue One. Did you do any different versions of your scenes, like when you say, “I trust her with my life?”

Smits: No. That was one of the reasons why I did it, because that little scene there meant a lot to me. I’m so happy that the film has done well, because it meant a lot, I think, to the franchise to do this whole thing that the standalone films would be just as substantive and good as the others, so that they can have a life themselves.


The Get Down (Courtesy of Netflix)

RT: Will you be back on The Get Down?

Smits: The Get Down is going to show its second half that’s already shot. Baz [Luhrmann] is talking now to different directors because he wants to shepherd it more than be active every day directing.

RT: What’s coming up for Papa Fuerte?

Smits: His love for his niece knows no bounds. That, plus the political situation that’s going on New York, he’s going to go down.

RT: Do you get to play the fall from the top?

Smits: Oh, there’s a fall. I don’t know if it’s from the top, but his top.

RT: If Mylene gets discovered, is he instrumental in that?

Smits: He’s involved. He’s another one who wants to put his hand into everything, but you start finding out that the family situation is much different than it was shown in the beginning of the first episodes.

RT: Does the second half take us into 1978 or beyond?

Smits: Yeah, we make a time jump, and I’m not sure what the next year is. Disco is on its downswing, which starts affect what happens with Mylene.

24: Legacy premieres Sunday, February 5 after the Super Bowl on Fox. Be sure to also read our interviews with Hawkins and the cast of 24: Legacy.


This week at the movies, we have a coming-of-age story with an interplanetary twist (The Space Between Us, starring Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson) and the latest lethal video in the Ring franchise (Rings, starring Matilda Lutz and Alex Roe). What are the critics saying?


The Space Between Us (2017) 16%

It’s been a rough few months for space romances. It was just a few weeks ago that Passengers failed to resonate with critics, and now The Space Between Us — which vacated its original December release date to make room for that picture — is also crash landing on the Tomatometer. Reviews describe this teen-focused drama, starring Asa Butterfield as a human boy raised on Mars whose journey to Earth sparks a potentially doomed romance, as overlong and overly melodramatic, with nowhere near enough narrative momentum to escape its storyline’s sudsy stumbles. (If you want to fall in love with a film that has sci-fi overtones this weekend, the acclaimed Arrival is now available on digital.)


Rings (2017) 8%

Fifteen years after Naomi Watts frantically fought to escape a freaky well-dwelling demon girl’s curse in The Ring, here comes the third installment in Hollywood’s take on the J-horror Ringu franchise. Rings brings the evil Samara back for more terror, and as before, we’re warned that “first you watch it, then you die.” Beyond that, we’re sadly unable to give you many details, because it wasn’t screened for critics — and you know what that means. Guess the Tomatometer!


What’s New on TV

Powerless: Season 1 (2017) 61%

Powerless has a strong premise leaving room for improvement — and strong performances from a talented cast — but the show’s initial spark is dimmed by uneven execution and a lack of laughs.

While Superior Donuts‘ talented cast impressively delivers, the annoying laugh track and stale jokes leave a hole in the middle of a crusty — albeit topical — narrative.

24: Legacy: Corey Hawkins (Mathieu Young/FOX)

The creators of the 24 series franchise designed a new Fox show, 24: Legacy, to continue its unique action-packed, real-time suspense with all new characters. With that, comes a new hero to fill the well-worn shoes of former series star Kiefer Sutherland, who endured for eight full seasons, through TV movie 24: Redemption, and on into the limited series 24: Live Another Day as iconic character Jack Bauer.

At the center of the latest new day is Eric Carter, a former Army Ranger who’s been in witness protection until a group of terrorists find him and his team. Now on the run, Carter has to protect his wife and work with CTU to stop the terrorists.

Corey Hawkins, who garnered so much praise for his role as Dr. Dre in 2015 film Straight Outta Compton, plays Carter and appears ready to take on the legacy of 24. Past the halfway point of filming the 12 episode series, the series star was naturally enthusiastic at a rooftop party for the Fox reboot series when he spoke to Rotten Tomatoes before the holidays.

Series fans will meet Hawkins after the Super Bowl on February 5, when 24: Legacy premieres. In that first hour, they’ll see Carter spring into action against bad guys in his house and in an epic construction site–set fight, which he briefed us on during our conversation.


24: Legacy: Corey Hawkins (Ray Mickshaw/FOX)

Fred Topel for Rotten Tomatoes: How did it feel to say those words, “The following takes place between…?”

Corey Hawkins: [Laughs] You know, I never actually thought about that, which is strange because it’s such an iconic phrase, but I never actually thought about it. I guess I was too busy trying to figure out how I was going to get inside of Eric Carter. Then that’s just Eric up there talking. But it’s an immense honor to be able to utter those words, man.

RT: Did they have you introduce all 12 hours in one recording session?

Hawkins: No, not yet. We go bit by bit by bit with this show, literally in real time. So as it comes, as the episodes come, that might change. So we’ll see.

RT: What was it like filming the construction site fight?

Hawkins: Well, we have an amazing stunt coordinator and that was a real pipe rolling down that thing and real dust. We worked there for two days, and they built out that whole construction site too. It was exciting, because I felt like a kid again. I was like, Oh my God. It was a real action scene to juxtapose the heavy character work. It was pretty neat.

RT: Did you have to clean off the dust and do take two?

Hawkins: Yes, and that was huge too. All of us. It wasn’t just me literally in all of that stuff all day long every day, and I was also battling a little sickness too. But the crew came in — costumes — clean it off, and roll back again.

RT: Did you have to learn a military style of fighting?

Hawkins: There’s a mixture, because Eric grew up where he grew up. He knows that world. Then also he’s an Army Ranger, so he’s learned over the course of his training techniques and moves and stuff. But at the same time, when you’re engaged in hand-to-hand combat for your life, sometimes the best thing to do is kick the guy in the knee or gouge his eye. That’s how we’ve been approaching the fights.



RT: By comparison to the construction site, how intense was the fight scene in the house?

Hawkins: Again, it’s all makeshift. It’s all figuring it out on the go. We literally sat in the room and we said, “OK, he’s trapped in this chair. How does he get out of this situation?” And he has to get out of this situation, because his wife is now in danger and they know where she is, and it’s only a matter of seconds. That’s where you lean in and you figure it out. That was fun, man. It’s different because he’s in the house. He grabs the chair hold that’s tied to his arm and he smashes the guy’s head in. That’s just what we were finding as we were going.

RT: Is there any manual they can give you for starting this? Because they’ve done nine years of 24, and this is your first.

Hawkins: The best manual that they gave me was the script. All I do is get the scripts as they come in and go by that. That’s my bible. I get the opportunity, the luxury to find out new things as we go, and then as an actor, I get to dig in.

RT: By the time you got to hours eight and nine, how did you keep up the pace?

Hawkins: We’re on hours eight and nine right now. We shoot with great directors: Stephen Hopkins directed the original 24 pilot. Jon Cassar directed pretty much everything else in terms of 24, all the episodes and the movie. And Nelson McCormick who also directed on 24. We’re in good hands, and I trust it. Right now it’s just sort of seeing where it goes, man.

RT: 24 portrayed a black U.S. president before the country had actually elected one and became a big hit. How important was it to you to become the main character in such a huge, groundbreaking franchise?

Hawkins: It was huge for me, because this role sort of came to me, and I got the opportunity to say yes or no to it. And I felt a huge responsibility because growing up, I didn’t see this, and I grew up in Washington, D.C., which is where the show is set. My father grew up in that world. My mother’s a police officer, and so this show reflects a lot of the reality of where I came from and a lot of people’s realities. If people don’t connect to Eric Carter’s struggles, I’m sure they’ll find a character in this series to connect to. That’s ultimately what it’s about for me.

It’s a huge opportunity, and it’s something I didn’t want to pass up. It’s a great responsibility, and I just hope I can continue to do justice to it, one second at a time.

24: Legacy premieres February 5 following the Super Bowl on Fox.

Be sure to also read our interview with the series’ producers and costars: “12 Things We Learned About the New 24: Legacy.”


24: Legacy (Mathieu Young/FOX)

It would be tempting to list 24 things about the new 24: Legacy, but even 24 cut back to 12 episodes. Jack Bauer and Kiefer Sutherland were the backbone of 24 for eight full seasons, standalone two-hour TV movie 24: Redemption, and the limited series 24: Live Another Day.

24: Legacy is the first time the franchise has attempted a series entry with a new lead character, still in real time every hour.

Corey Hawkins plays Eric Carter, an Army Ranger living in witness protection until his cover is blown by killers. He escapes and turns to CTU for help, while CTU itself faces a handover in management and a new presidential candidate (Jimmy Smits) begins a day of campaigning.

Before the holidays, producers Evan Katz and Howard Gordon, along with costars Smits, Teddy Sears, and Sheila Vand shared 12 things to know about the new 12-hour Fox series 24: Legacy, which premieres after the Super Bowl.


1. THE DAY BEGINS AT NOON

24: Legacy: Corey Hawkins (Ray Mickshaw/FOX)

Back when 24 did 24 hours of real-time episodes, the season would begin early in the morning. Now that there are only 12 hours, 24: Legacy sleeps in, as it were. Beginning at noon allows the day to go until midnight, so the last few hours will be at night.

“Part of the fun of 24 is days and nights,” Gordon teased.

Katz added that night is integral to the final hours of the story: “There’s a couple reasons for later. We backed into it a little bit.”


2. THERE ARE NEW BOXES 24: LEGACY CAN OPEN

24: LEGACY: Ashley Thomas (John P Fleenor/FOX)

CTU and a political campaign are familiar 24 territory. Legacy introduces some new storylines. One subplot has a high school teacher and student involved in terrorism. Meanwhile, Eric turns to his brother Isaac (Ashley Thomas), a drug dealer and gang leader, for help.

“Carter’s drug-dealer brother, the school and the idea that his character is not a CTU agent, he’s a soldier that’s dragged into it,” Katz said. “You think about how different that is from where the original series started. It’s a young man with a very optimistic, aspirational point in life who gets dragged into this. It’s so refreshing to be with somebody who’s just starting his life, just starting his family.”


3. THE PRESIDENT IS STILL A PIONEER

24: Legacy: Jimmy Smits (Mathieu Young/FOX)

24 had black presidents in David and Wayne Palmer and a female president in Allison Taylor. Smits plays presidential candidate John Donovan, which suggests a Hispanic president is the next objective. Since his name is Donovan and Smits himself is of mixed Puerto Rican and Dutch heritage, Smits says it is more complicated than just “Latin President.”

“It’s how we address what you perceive an American to be,” Smits said. “My dynamic has to do with the way I was brought up and the things that I’ve chosen that are important to me in my life. That happens on screen when you see any particular character, so we’ll see what happens.”


4. THE STILES FAMILY IS GROWING

24: Day 5, Louis Lombardi (Fox)

Remember Edgar Stiles (Louis Lombardi), the CTU analyst who sacrificed himself nobly in season 5? We won’t spoil it, but there is a character who references Edgar in 24: Legacy to keep his spirit alive.

“I think that’s important for the audience,” Katz said. “I think it’s important to connect the old with the new. Hopefully it does it in a way that’s not intrusive and kind of interesting. For those who know, hopefully it’s meaningful.”


5. TONY ALMEIDA’S NOT THE MAN HE USED TO BE

24, season 7, Carlos Bernard (Fox)

The producers announced Carlos Bernard would return as Tony Almeida. Since the previous seasons of 24 took everything away from him, brace for the Tony Almeida who appears midway through 24: Legacy.

“We left him a hollow man,” Gordon said. “A character who’s lost everything, it’s kind of hard to animate him. He’s sort of a shadow at that point. He’s kind of a hollowed out man who has no illusions about people and institutions anymore. The one thing about 24 is it’s about people losing things and trying to get them back which is kind of like life.”


6. THE DONOVAN CAMPAIGN HAS A HILLARY CLINTON CONNECTION

24: Legacy: Sheila Vand (Mathieu Young/FOX)

Vand plays Donovan’s campaign manager, Nilaa. Vand said Nilaa is loosely based on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin.

“She’s gotten a lot of flak for her Muslim-American background, even though she’s been in politics for 20 years,” Vand said. “We play a little bit off that situation of how you can be racially profiled when you are a Muslim American fighting for this country. When you look at Huma Abedin, she is all business all the time. You can never read her. I’m trying to create a character that can go from being totally emotional to being back to business within a couple of hours.”


7. CTU IS STILL FULL OF MOLES

24: Legacy: Teddy Sears (Mathieu Young/FOX)

One of the reliable plot devices on 24 was the threat of a mole in CTU. The new head of CTU is Keith Mullins, played by Teddy Sears. He doesn’t know how trustworthy Mullins is yet.

“I will say I have not seen the original eighth and ninth seasons of the show,” Sears said. “I wasn’t colored by anything I’d previously seen. I was actually excited at the prospect of being a guy you’re not sure if you like or trust. I think if I had seen the original series, I probably would have stacked it up against previous directors of CTU in a bad way.”


8. THE CARTER FAMILY HAS MORE SKELETONS THAN THE BAUERS

24: LEGACY: Corey Hawkins and Anna Diop (John P Fleenor/FOX)

Jack Bauer eventually had torture and murder on his rap sheet by the final season, but at the beginning of 24 his only secret was having an affair with Nina Myers. Isaac and Eric have a big beef over Eric’s wife Nicole (Anna Diop), who used to be Isaac’s girlfriend. Now the Carters need Isaac’s help.

“I love brother stories,” Gordon said. “What’s really great about 24 is that you set up what you think is the premise and these relationships and the days inevitably, the pressure and the facts of the day changes everybody forever.”


9. PAY ATTENTION TO THE SPLIT SCREENS

Since 24 happens in real time, the camera never stops rolling. Scenes that may be left out of other shows appear in 4×4 boxes to help the viewer keep track of what each character is doing every minute of the hour. Smits enjoyed playing the parts of the scenes that usually don’t happen on screen.

“The split screen is one of the reasons why I did the show, because it changed the way you guys receive visual dramatic material,” Smits said. “It adds a dynamic quality at the workplace every day on set because you have to be conscious that everything that you’re doing that’s written takes place on the same day.”


10. NILAA LIKES DONOVAN’S WIFE

24: Legacy: Miranda Otto (Mathieu Young/FOX)

While Donovan is on the campaign, his wife Rebecca (Miranda Otto) makes one last stop into CTU. According to the rules of 24, she probably won’t be home for dinner. In the first hour, Nilaa makes a comment about Rebecca that John shoots down. Vand explained that viewers should not take that as a rivalry.

‘She makes that comment in the limo, ‘Maybe Rebecca doesn’t want to give up her career,’” Vand said. “I think the audience reads that as maybe something competitive or maybe she’s suspicious. Actually I think she respects that, and she wants to address it as a fellow powerful woman who’s very career oriented.”


11. REBECCA AND MULLINS GOT ALONG, UNTIL NOW

24: LEGACY: Miranda Otto (Ray Mickshaw/FOX)

Mullins takes over as head of CTU when Rebecca retires to focus on her husband’s campaign. Presumably they got along before today, but something happens in the first hour that would make it hard for them to remain colleagues, let alone friends.

“Our idea was that she had been grooming Mullins to take over,” Sears said. “Moving forward, as we pull the thread about this guy, it certainly colors his interaction with her. That I can tell you. We’ll see in episode two, they have a face-to-face and he’s not relaxed. It’s the absolute opposite.”


12. NILAA’S DAY GETS CRAZY AFTER 1 P.M.

24: LEGACY: Jimmy Smits ( John P Fleenor/FOX)

The first hour of 24: Legacy sends Eric Carter on the run, introduces new terrorists and casts paranoia over CTU. So far, Donovan and Nilaa are just getting ready for their day. Vand said the subsequent hour is when things “get crazy” for her.

“I feel like I’m the silent ninja in the pilot,” Vand said. “Starting the second episode is where things get really crazy for my character. I think you’re going to see her dealing with her own morality, her own ideas of right and wrong because she’s trying to balance that with getting him to win. So they’re going to have to do whatever it takes to protect this campaign. I think they’re going to have to find their moral compass.”

24: Legacy premieres February 5 following the Super Bowl on Fox
