Fox executives have confirmed that there is no current plan to bring back “24: Legacy” and “Prison Break” to the small screen.

Chairman and CEO Gary Newman said in a statement to Yahoo that the network is focusing on the development of a brand new series. So, “Prison Break and “24: Legacy” will not return in coming months. The return of “24: Legacy” depends on the availability of Corey Hawkins -- who had taken over the lead role from Kiefer Sutherland as the protagonist. Currently, he is busy with the production of “The Walking Dead,” and “Six Degrees Of Separation,” so he may or may not be available.

On the other hand, “Prison Break” creator Paul Scheuring is busy with the production of two brand new series for ABC. So, he may not have time for more "Prison Break."

‘24: Legacy’

The Fox CEO said that they will arrange a meeting with “24: Legacy” creators Manny Coto and Evan Katz to finalize whether the show should get another season or not. “24: Legacy” premiered on February 5, 2017, and served as the lead-out program for Super Bowl LI. The 12-episode show follows the life of a young man, Eric Carter, who falls in love with a former athlete, Rebecca Ingram.

The cast includes Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto, Anna Diop, Teddy Sears, Ashley Thomas, Dan Bucatinsky, Coral Peña, Sheila Vand, Raphael Acloque, Gerald McRaney, and Jimmy Smits.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the show has an approval rating of 63% based on 54 reviews.
