A new teaser trailer has been released to promote the return of Kevin Williamson’s The Following, plus the official synopsis for the first episode of Season Two. The teaser shows Joe Carroll’s followers wearing a mask of his face, while a voiceover screams “resurrection”. It is very creepy stuff indeed.
Also below is the very first teaser trailer for the Christina Ricci starring woman killer TV movie, Lizzie Borden Took An Axe. Enjoy!
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 on 20th January 2014.
Synopsis for The Following: Series Two Episode One: Resurrection:
Despite appearances a healed Ryan Hardy (Bacon) has gotten his life together, he continues to obsess about Joe Carroll (Purefoy); a murderous rampage on the anniversary of Joe’s death leaves everyone determined to uncover the truth.
Lizzie Borden Took An Axe:
Lifetime will premiere a movie of parent killer Lizzie Borden, which stars Christina Ricci, on January 25th next year.
Directed by Nick Gomez (Dexter, Flash Forward), the film also stars Billy Campbell as Borden’s lawyer and Clea DuVall (Zodiac, Argo) as her sister.
It’s not just a disturbing nursery rhyme! Now the true story of how Lizzie Borden murdered her parents (or did she?) in the summer of 1892 is being brought to Lifetime, with Christina Ricci as the eponymous Lizzie. The true-crime case captured national attention when it first happened, proving that Americans obsession with scandalous and sordid tales is nothing new.
