Fox’s new chapter of 24 has cast The Messengers‘ Anna Diop as its day-saving hero’s wife.
Titled 24: Legacy, the 12-episode revival-boot centers on Eric Carter (The Walking Dead‘s Corey Hawkins), a military hero who encounters a troubled return to the U.S., compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
Per our sister site Deadline, Diop will play a significant role as Eric’s wife Nicole.
In addition to her run as The Messengers’ Rose (the formerly comatose nurse who went about assembling the Angels of the Apocalypse), Diop’s TV credits include episodes of Quantico, Touch and Everybody Hates Chris, and the upcoming OWN series Greenleaf.
In other previously announced 24: Legacy casting, Homeland‘s Miranda Otto will play Rebecca Ingram, the smart and confident former head of CTU who is having second thoughts about her decision to vacate her post.
