Deadline has released their “bubble watch” status report, detailing which shows look likely to be renewed or cancelled. Here’s what they had to say about 24: Legacy.
And then there is 24: Legacy. There were very high expectations for the reboot of Fox’s signature drama, with the network giving it a post-Super Bowl launch. Based on that, 24: Legacy‘s delivery has been disappointing, with its future in limbo, possibly contingent on finding a premise for Season 2 that could reenergize the franchise. Still, with a marquee worldwide title and dearth of new drama options at Fox for next season, the reboot is in the mix.
And here is Entertainment Weekly‘s prediction:
A tough one to predict. Fox would rather not give a show the coveted post-Super Bowl slot and then kill it (that’s just embarrassing), and Legacy‘s ratings were higher than several other Fox dramas on this list. If only the action-packed series wasn’t so expensive and viewers didn’t seem to flee so decisively, a renewal would be easier.
TVLine lists 24: Legacy’s renewal chance as “a long-shot.”
Kiefer Sutherland has found success in his new series Designated Survivor which “is certain to come back” for a second season according to Deadline. So if Legacy were to get renewed, don’t count on Jack Bauer appearing.
