The premise of the show revolves around war hero Eric Carter and Rebecca Ingram, the former head of the Counter Terrorist Unit and wife of presidential candidate John Donovan. Back in the US after a mission Carter and his squad mates unknowingly gain possession of a list of terrorist cells in US territory, and the codes to activate future attacks. He turns to the CTU to save his life and stop a series of imminent terrorist attacks on American soil.
