The new 24: Legacy trailer is gunning for This Is Us.

Released Tuesday evening, the trailer for the forthcoming 24 revival has already amassed over 10 million views on Facebook. According to Variety, it had over 7 million views within the first 24 hours. 

The Fox series is closing in on the record set by NBC’s This Is Us earlier this year. The trailer for the Dan Fogelman-created series was nearing 15 million views on the social media site a little over 48 hours after its release, reported Deadline in May. There is still some time for the Fox drama to catch up. 

Fox is seeing some great numbers when it comes to its revived properties. The trailer for Prison Break, a continuation of the Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell drama that ended in 2009, currently has over 27 million views on Facebook

(Although these are impressive numbers for new series trailers, it is worth noting that Facebook counts a “view” after three seconds.)

24: Legacy, which features the original series’ split-screen format, introduces audiences to a new hero, Eric Carter (Corey Hawkins), a military hero who returns home with a target on his back after killing a terrorist leader and who teams up with the Counter Terrorist Unit to prevent an attack on U.S. soil. Mirando Otto, Jimmy Smits, Teddy Sears, and Dan Bucatinsky also star. 

24: Legacy premieres on Sunday, Feb. 5 after Super Bowl LI.
