Serial killer series The Following returns this coming January, and already two teasers have been released to promote the shows return. A third teaser has just been released, with Kevin Bacon as Ryan Hardy and James Purefoy as Joe Carroll discussing the Devil’s greatest trick. Check out the new teaser below.
Fans (or followers!!) of the show may recall serial killer and Edgar Allan Poe enthusiast Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) go up in flames after a stand-off with Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). As the final episode concluded, Hardy and Claire (Natalie Zea) were stabbed by Hardy’s former girlfriend (and one of Joe’s followers), Molly. We don’t have many details on the plot for the new series but we know that James Purefoy will return in some capacity, along with lead Kevin Bacon.
A host of new faces will also be joining the show. Leslie Bibb (Iron Man) wil play Jana Murphy, a housewife who encounters notorious killer Joe Carroll, Keith Carradine (Dexter) as a friend of Hardy’s, Jessica Stroup (90210) as Hardy’s niece, James McDaniel (NYPD Blue) as a task force leader, Valerie Cruz (Nip/Tuck) as Detective Gina Mendez. Other stars include Carrie Preston (True Blood) and Connie Nielsen.
Creator Kevin Williamson has revealed that the second season will be set a year after the events of the first season:“Moving forward one year later gives us an opportunity to explore a whole new story. We just want to make the best show possible and make it better.”
The Following Season 2 is due to return to our TV screens in January 2014.
