During a 24: Legacy panel at New York Comic Con with the show’s producers and cast, it was revealed Tony Almeida is coming back.
According to TVLine, Carlos Bernard has signed on to reprise his role as Almeida.
At the panel, no details were given specifically as to when Almeida will show back up in the new series, only that he’ll “shake things up.” The last we saw of Almeida was in the short film 24: Solitary, where we saw his life in prison and his work toward breaking himself out.
Bernard’s return marks the first actor from the original series to be confirmed for the new show. Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer isn’t the main character of 24: Legacy, but that doesn’t mean he, or other characters from 24, couldn’t return for the new series.
