If you’ve been hesitant to jump on the bandwagon for “The Following” in case it gets cancelled before telling its full story, don’t worry. Fox has already given the show an early pickup for a second season.
From the Press Release:
FOX has ordered a second season of the year’s most thrilling new series, “THE FOLLOWING,” it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
“From the very beginning, we felt Kevin Williamson and Marcos Siega had created a high-quality, edge-of-your-seat drama that could break from the pack, and it is exciting to see the audience responding,” said Reilly. “Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have given us two of the most compelling characters on television, and the entire cast is incredible. I’m delighted to have this thrill ride continue on FOX for another season.”
After only six airings, “THE FOLLOWING” is already the No. 2 broadcast drama and the No. 3 drama overall this season with Live+7 ratings. Since it launched, the psychological thriller has also quickly established itself as one of the most buzzed-about series in social media, ranking as the No. 1 new broadcast drama in total social comments.
