TV: There’s a new face of evil coming in The Following Season 2


With the second season of The Following looming this January, we’ve got a couple of teaser trailers for you. They don’t give anything away, but with only a couple of months to go until the serial killer thriller returns to our screens, it’s about time we started seeing something for the new series.

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 (Boss).

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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
