In “24: Legacy,” Hawkins plays Eric Carter, one of a six-man Army Ranger Squad that killed terrorist Ibrahim Bin-Khalid six months ago. The group changed their names and went into hiding, but jihadists found them all, forcing Eric and his wife Nicole (Anna Diop) to flee.

Otto is Rebecca Ingram, the former national director of the CTU, who retires after Bin-Khalid is taken out. She’s now focused on helping her husband, Sen. John Donovan (Jimmy Smits), run for president. The premiere episode is set in Washington, D.C., and viewers will get their first look at the CTU’s national headquarters.
