In January 2016, Fox announced it had ordered a pilot for a spin-off series titled 24: Legacy, featuring a new cast, with no returning characters. The series retains the real-time format, however, consist of 12 episodes, using time jumps to cover the events of a single day. The two lead characters are a male military hero returning home and a female who is a former head of CTU. Stephen Hopkins, who directed the original 24 pilot and several first season episodes, directed the Legacy pilot. In April 2016, Fox officially greenlit the series with a 12-episode order.

Appearance of Jack Bauer

In June 2015, Sutherland said, when asked about the future of Jack Bauer, "I am not coming back to do 24. Sutherland said that 24 is such a great idea, that this could go on forever". Sutherland said he felt it was important to have a new cast to keep the series and he hopes to maybe have a cameo in the future. In September 2015, Sutherland seemingly ruled out any further involvement with the show, stating that he would "definitely not return in any way". In February 2016, Sutherland said regarding about possibly returning to 24: "I've learned enough over the last few years to not say never. We were never going to do a season nine when we finished after the eighth season. I said we were done. So I'm going to just say we'll see." He also said regarding the Legacy pilot script that it is "really cool" and that he would be the "first person to watch it".

During the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, the producers called the series "an expansion of the 24 universe,"? rather than a reboot of the original series. The producers revealed that they had chosen a new main character rather than Jack Bauer for the series as they felt they "had exhausted the former CTU agent"?s story". Executive producer Gordon commented that "The groundwork that started the series is that we all felt Jack Bauer told his story with Live Another Day. Kiefer read the script after it was written and saw the pilot after it was shot and loved it."? With a presidential election plot, the producers decided to be neutral in referencing real-life presidential candidates. Evan Katz explained that "You never know who"?s affiliated with what. We started writing it before it was clear who the frontrunners would be, so it"?s really neutral in that way."
