Bursting like a bolt from the darkness is the star of The Flash, Teddy Sears, who has been cast in FOX's forthcoming 24 sequel series Legacy.
Sears plays the new head of CTU, Keith Mullins, at the centre of the gripping terrorist-fuelled drama.
Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto and Anna Diop will also appear alongside Sears in the all-new cast. Hawkins will play a central role in a position similar to that of Bauer in previous seasons. His character is a military hero returning from Iraq with trouble close behind.
The season is the love child of 20th Century Fox Television and Imagine Television.
The new installment follows the same format as its predecessors, with each episode showing a single real-time hour. The new pilot is the only confirmed episode but FOX has a further 12 in its pocket.
