In the build up to the return of Kevin Williamson’s superb serial killer series, The Following, we have had five videos looking at “the scene of the crime”, which have all looked back over the events leading up to, and after, what happened in the sinister series. Now comes the final video, which looks at the aftermath of the events, and gives an update to what has been happening since we left The Following a year ago.
The video is embedded below, but just to make things as clear as possible, I have also added all the previous videos so that you can watch them all in order!
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.”
