A familiar face is returning to CTU on "24: Legacy" — the once-heroic, now imprisoned Tony Almeida.
The news came out a few months ago that Carlos Bernard would reprise his role from the original series in the follow-up, which stars Corey Hawkins as an ex-Army ranger who works for CTU. Today, Fox released a new trailer teasing Tony's comeback. He's still in prison, but new CTU director Rebecca Ingram (Miranda Otto) wants his help in foiling a terrorist attack.
Tony used to be right-hand man to Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) until he died in season 5. He returned two seasons later as a villain and was put in prison. Tony was last seen in a featurette on the "24: Live Another Day" Blu-ray/DVD, negotiating his way out of solitary confinement.
"We love the character and we loved [Bernard] so much we added that scene in the DVD," co-creator Manny Coto told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour. "It felt right that he was the one person who comes back."
"24: Legacy" premieres after the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 5.
